Justa 25 minute (8 mile) boat ride from the Turtle Inn resort, thetwo acre, isolated, private island ofCoral Caye will make any trip to Belize that bit more memorable.

The island features a small coral sand beach and fascinating mangrove ecology. Once used as a commercial fishing camp, it has now been enhanced for travelers who want a once in a lifetime experience, while still preserving the natural, local flavor.
