Because of the freshwater sources in the center of this small island, fisherman used to stop off at South Water Caye to replenish their supplies. Approximately 15 acres in size, South Water Caye lies directly above the Belize Barrier Reef and is home to some of the best snorkeling and diving in the country.
When a beautiful tropical island comes to mind, South Water Caye is an almost picture-perfect rendition of that image. With gorgeous panoramas of the Caribbean, sugar sand white beaches and gorgeous snorkeling and diving opportunities nearby, South Water Caye is one of the most beautiful islands to snorkel from in Belize.
Because the island is in the middle of a protected nature reserve, guests will be able to easily spot an abundance of colorful marine life all along the shoreline.
South Water Caye is home to numerous eagle rays and large southern stingrays and is considered a favorite underrated spot in Belize by many travelers.
This snorkeling tour departs Palmento Grove Lodge at 9 AM and returns at 4PM.
