Now you’ve reached the northern tip of the inhabited half of Caye Caulker island, marked by the cobalt-blue Split. Because most of the island’s waters are too shallow for swimming, the Caye Caulker Split serves as a sort of Olympic-sized pool, crisscrossed by docks perfect for sunbathing. The Split is also one of the best places on the island to enjoy a Caribbean sunset.

Caye Caulker's offshore shallows to the right boasts a silky sand bottom, and a volleyball court is set up a couple dozen yards out. Be careful when swimming in the Split itself – boats often speed through with little heed for swimmers, and the currents in this area can be strong.
