Overview

With its musical inspiration and cuisine emanating from the reggae and rasta Caribbean culture, and everyone speaking English, Belize still has its own national identity, nowhere more so than on the coast.

There are sugar-white Caribbean beaches on the mainland and the offshore cayes with coral reefs lying just offshore and wrecks harbouring a wealth of underwater life. Ambergris Caye, the largest island, offers access to the reef. Caye Caulker, a lobster-fishing island, is a long-time hippy paradise which has retained its easy-going atmosphere. Placencia, a barefoot resort currently under development, is at the tip of a spidery spit of land south of the little clap-board fishing port of Dangriga.

Where to go when - our guide to Caribbean cayes and coast

Belize Tourist Board ©

The weather in Caribbean cayes and coast is wide and varied

With musical inspiration and cuisine emanating from the Caribbean reggae and Rastafarian culture, the sugar-white beaches on the mainland and offshore cayes are the ideal place to switch-off, relax and unwind at your own pace. The best time to visit is the dry season running from December – May when you can expect plenty of warm sunny days. February – April is the best time for snorkelling and diving on the coral reefs as the water is at its clearest, although the sea here is warm enough to swim in year round and there is an abundance of marine life and ship wrecks to entertain you.
