Caye Caulker is a small island in the Carribean Sea, approximately 20 miles from the Belizean mainland. The entire island is only five miles long and one mile wide, and the primary modes of transportation are bicycle, golf cart and on foot. The island is accessible by water taxi and by air.
Along with nearby Amergris Caye, Caye Caulker is one of Belize's premier tourist destinations, famous for its snorkeling and diving opportunities. Tourists come to Caye Caulker to snorkel in Shark Ray Alley, dive the Blue Hole, go on manatee-sighting tours, or just to relax. In contrast to the more resort-laiden Ambergris, Caye Caulker has many budget options and is popular among backpackers.
In 1961, Hurricane Hattie forever changed Caye Caulker by splitting the island in two. The north end of the island is now seperated from Caye Caulker Village by a narrow channel known as "The Split". Both ends are still collectively known as Caye Caulker.
