The Beaches on Ambergris Caye
One of the first things travelers new to Ambergris Caye want to know is what our beaches are like. The entire coastline is lined by white coral sand beaches. The shallow water right off the beach is a mosaic of sea grass beds and patches of sandy areas. On some beaches, you'll find mostly sand which makes them great for swimming, and in other areas, you'll find mostly sea grass. However, it's important to keep in mind that sea grass beds are very important fish nurseries and they are responsible for the diversity and abundance of fishes you see when fishing our flats and snorkeling Belize's Barrier Reef! But aside from the patches of sea grass beds, the beaches are white, the coconut trees are green and the crystal clear water glimmers in the sunlight with infinite hues of blue.
