Snake Cayes

Snake Cayes, located a short boat ride from Punta Gorda Town, consists of four small islands- West, Middle, East, and South Snake Cayes- each with distinct features. While most have mangrove terrain with coconut trees, West Snake Caye boasts sandy beaches and clear waters. Despite not being part of the Belize Barrier Reef, Snake Cayes’ coral ecosystem is on limestone ledges within the Belize Coastal Zone. Visitors can enjoy snorkelling among coral species like fan, brain, and fire corals, and encounter marine life such as crabs, lobster, and various fish species. Snakes Cayes offer an opportunity to explore Belize’s coastal treasures in a tranquil setting.
