Tobacco Cay

If you fancy hanging out a bit closer to the surface, Tobacco Cay boasts some excellent snorkelling. The shallow reef running along the islands' eastern and southern shoreline forms the edge of the famous South Water Cay marine reserve, and from here you can often spot eagle rays gracefully soaring over the turtle grass beds.

Take to a kayak and circumnavigate the islands dazzling turquoise waters, taking the time to pause and admire the pristine white coral sand beaches lined with coconut and palm trees. For the early bird, there is some great fly-fishing to be found just beyond the reef, and at sunset you’ll find the local fishermen preparing their catches of the day at the dock.

At sundown island life steps up a gear or two. The thatched roof beach bar is just feet away from the gentle lapping waves and is the ideal spot for sipping on a cool rum punch, whilst chatting to fellow sailors or the islands residents. Don’t be surprised if they bring out their Garifuna drums for an impromptu musical spectacle. Just sit back and enjoy the rhythms as you watch the Belizean sun setting behind the cool blue Maya Mountains.
