Smaller and less heavily developed than neighboring Ambergris Caye, Caye Caulker is known for its slow pace and laid-back vibe. For travelers seeking excitement, adventure can be found in its teeming underwater reefs, bird-filled mangrove forests, and on its clear Caribbean waters. Here are your best options for outdoor activities. 

Snorkeling and Scuba Diving
With a fish-filled reef on the island’s doorstep, it’s no big surprise that snorkeling and scuba diving top the agenda for adventure-seeking travelers. Popular spots include Hol Chan Marine Reserve. Here, nurse sharks and rays swarm Shark Ray Alley, lured by food provided by local fishermen and tour operators. Belize’s Great Blue Hole, a giant ocean sinkhole, is another hot spot for diving and snorkeling tours.

Wind and Water Sports
Never more than a stone’s throw away on Caye Caulker, the Caribbean Sea serves as the setting for numerous water sports experiences. Kayak around the leeward (west side) of the island, where you’re less likely to be blown off course by the wind. You should be able to spot marine life including sea stars, tarpon, and brightly colored parrotfish from the seat of your kayak. Alternatively, try stand-up paddleboarding at the Split, the narrow waterway that divides Caye Caulker in two. 

Biking
The island of Caye Caulker is car-free, which means visitors need to find other modes of transport to get where they need to go. While golf carts can be rented for a small fee, they are by no means necessary; the island measures just 5 miles (8 kilometers) from north to south. Plus, it’s much more fun to explore the island’s sandy roads as locals do: from the saddle of a bike, where you can feel the sea breeze blowing and pull over whenever you feel like it. 
 
Bird-Watching and Wildlife-Watching
Small though Caye Caulker is, the island still manages to play host to a large amount of wildlife. Much of its birdlife is concentrated in the Caye Caulker Forest Reserve at the north of the island, where hundreds of feathered species, including mangrove warblers and white-crowned pigeons, can be seen, alongside crocodiles, turtles, and iguanas. Another good wildlife-viewing day-trip destination is Swallow Caye Wildlife Sanctuary, southwest of Caye Caulker, where you can observe West Indian manatees in their natural habitat.
