  • After snorkeling, we here have stopped. Very small island with crystal clear water and a bar. Delicious lobster. Overall very full, but nice.

  • Crystal blue waters that sit along the second largest coral reef in the world! Spent a morning /afternoon on this Beautiful intimate island that is a 35 minute boat ride from the port of Belize. We we...  more »
  • On a cruise in the Caribbean, for the stop in Belize had selected an excursion '' do it yourself '' on Goff's Caye (the cayes are coral islands bordering the coasts of Belize, all situated on the barrier, characterised by warm colours always waters wonderful). The price to be paid to one of the many agencies offer this tour in port is $49 per person. We arrive after about 40 ' of launches fast, and it's for sight for sore eyes: a small strip of sand, a natural atoll heven unforgettable colours. Unfortunately, as reported in some reviews, the flood of people arriving continuously on the islet distorts a little the connotations, alters slightly the real beauty but ... already in the early afternoon, when the bulk of people fall to their ships from Cruise (we will do it for last), the Caye dress in new colours and everything begins to resemble a real paradise on Earth ... where do you go when you leave everything behind and move on! We wanted especially the beach and the sea, so we spent all our time to soak in the hot water and transparent. For those who wanted to, included in the price of the tour there was a further drive launches toward the reef, with possibility to snorkel. On the tiny atoll there is also the possibility to eat (even lobster tails at $12) and drink, and use the restrooms. It's worth it!

  • Remember of bring food with you. The food available to buy is expensive and you have to order it early if you really want to eat something. Great place for relaxing. Warm and calm water.
  • Arriving on this Island treasure will be the highlight of your trip to Belize!!! Don't miss it, it's a great time.. if you're on a Carnival Cruise in Belize, look for Carlton Kelly with Exotic Shores. He's got a great crew!!!
  • Spent a night out there during a sailboat trip in 2012, absolutely magical place
  • Lovely beaches, great atmosphere and friendly guides.
  • Go here at least once a year. Most beautiful snorkeling ever...right off shore. Water is beautiful! Hermit crabs and turtles on island. Absolutely one of my most favorite places.
