My review is on the natural beauty of the island, I have no idea about the services available on the island. I was only here on a surface interval between lighthouse atoll dives. The island is very beautiful, practically a picture postcard at every turn....More

Half Moon Caye is a national reserve/monument in the Belize waters that is not too far from the Blue Hole. This place, thankfully, is inhabited and being called Gilligan's island is so fitting. There's a fee to visit the place, but it is worth it....More

The quality of visiting this Caye probably depends on how you get there. It is a long boat ride to get here (I assume from everywhere on the mainland; we were in Hopkins and it was about one and a half hours). The water is...More

This place is so beautiful and peaceful. The waters are such a amazing crystal blue shade and it is fantastic for snorkeling. We loved the lizards and the wildlife. It is breathtaking and beautiful.

We visited the Caye after diving the Blue Hole and before experiencing the Playground dive site just off the Caye. We enjoyed it all. They have a Red Footed Booby sanctuary on the island which is probably important. Cool for a quick visit but always...More
