Top Ten Belize Adventures
The islands are mostly small dots of sand, mangrove clusters, and swampy land, though Blackbird Caye and Douglas Caye are quite large. With the preponderance of mangroves and coconut palms, many cayes are home only to sea and wading birds, ospreys, manatees, and crocodiles; a few support small colonies of fishermen and divers.
This atoll is a great fishing destination, just 25 miles east of Belize City. If you're into bonefish and permit, miles of crystal flats are alive with the hard-fighting fish. Tarpon are abundant late March - June within the protected creeks and channels throughout the islands. Those who seek larger trophies will find a grand choice of marlin, sailfish, wahoo, groupers, blackfin tuna, and many more.
