The Caye Caulker is a Caribbean Island which is just off the coast of Belize. This island is divided by a narrow channel which is called the Split. At the Split there is a bar and a beach which is completely sandy. In the north of the island we find dense mangrove forests and also birdlife which is probably protected by the reserves of the forest. In the south we can find only settlements and a village known as Caye Caulker Village. There are various dive sites on the Barrier Reef.
The Caye Caulker is an amazing place. The exact location is just one mile west of the Belize Barrier Reef. The approximate length is about 5 miles that could be around 8.2 km from north to south. The population of this island is about 1,300 only. The various cultures that are followed by the people who live in this island are Mestizo, Creole and Garifuna. The entire island has 57 hotels with 887 rooms. Lastly, the width of the island is about 0.25 to 2.0 km that comes out to be 0.15 to 1.2 miles.
The entire reef system of Caye Caulker snorkeling is in process of being converted into the Marine Reserve. Then onwards the fishing would be possible only in certain parts. The various Caye Caulker snorkelling spots are waist deep which could be around 6 feet in depths. The major parts are being used in practising of ecological soundings. All the boats that are used for touring carry life preserves for those swimmers who have just began to swim. No one would be harmed. All these beautiful spots are friendly for kids. It becomes more fun loving when the entire family comes together over here.
