Silk Cay, Placencia

4.5
#5 of 26 in Outdoors in Placencia
For some of the most memorable snorkeling of your life, head to Silk Cay. A sandy oasis in a sea of crystal clear, turquoise waters, the cay sits above the Gulf of Honduras. Designated areas in the protected marine reserve provide you with some of the most attractive coral in the world, with abundant species of fish, turtles, and sharks all calling Belize’s barrier reef their home. If you head just outside the reef on a dive, you'll have the opportunity to spot rare and elusive whale sharks.
