South Water Caye Has The Best Beaches in Belize
Ann Kuffner, the author of the article writes:
Belize is well-known for its famous Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, second only to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. For decades adventurous scuba divers and anglers have vacationed in Belize, in pursuit of their favorite marine sports. But this tiny country also has some fine beaches. But they aren’t always obvious to the first-time tourist.
According to the writer, Placencia, Hopkins Bay, Ambergris Caye and Belize’s Remote Cayes (this includes South Water Caye) are four destinations where you can find the finest beaches.
“Some exceptional beaches are hidden, hard to reach, or located on remote cayes. The small, remote cayes tend to be protected parks or privately owned. You’ll need a boat to find them,” writes Kuffner.
And indeed you will need a boat to visit South Water Caye which was voted this year by Outside Magazine for having the best beaches in Belize.
South Water Caye is east of Dangriga and is a 15 acre island inside the country’s largest marine reserve. The top activities to do in the island are snorkeling, scuba diving the pristine reef and nearby atoll, kayaking, birding, and paddling the shoreline of the island.
Fodors has described the island as one of their favorite underrated spots in Belize that has good off the beaten reef diving and snorkeling in a stunning tropical setting.

Good News! South West Plans to Begin Flights to Belize
South West Airlines announced today that starting October 2015 it will begin flying to Belize.
According to the press release: “The new Houston flights will be made possible by the completion of an estimated $156 million five-gate international concourse now under construction at Hobby. The completed project will increase capacity for all airport functions and add a Federal Inspections Services (FIS) facility to streamline U.S. Customs and Border Protection screening and baggage processing for arriving international passengers.”
The airline also plans to fly to four destinations in Mexico — Mexico City, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos — and to San Jose, Costa Rica, from the new international concourse.
The plan puts Southwest in head-to-head competition with United Airlines, which flies to all those locations from Houston’s larger airport, Bush Intercontinental.
This is certainly good news for Belize and its low cost airline tickets will definitely compel travelers to visit Belize.
