Belize Snapshot: Silk Cayes View

Silk Cayes, Placencia, Belize

Doesn’t this look like it was taken out of a postcard or a “Corona Extra” commercial?

I was left dumbstruck by the beauty of this small cay that barely has a population of 15 to 20 palms.  This cay is located about 21 miles from Placencia and it is a great place to go snorkeling and scuba diving as the waters are very clear, the corals are colorful, and the fish variety is immense; including sharks, stingrays, barracudas, eels, lobsters, and many kinds of fish species.Silk Cays, Placencia, Belize

During the past week, I visited the Silk Cayes 3 times as I was doing my Advanced Diver Certification.  I must admit that even with its small size, during every visit I found new things to look at and enjoy, whether it was above the surface or under it.

This is close to paradise!

    1. Hi Marina! So great you’re coming to Belize!! Ah, when you go to the Silk Cayes for snorkeling or diving, I’m sure you’ll see this palm tree. It’s pretty unique and stands out from the others. 😉

  1. Wow! It’s so beautiful! It’s perfect with the two ducks, the small log of wood, the few clouds on the horizon and most importantly every shade of blue! Just wow! 🙂

  2. I’m just returning from a 2+week trip to Belize. I love the Silk Cayes…but discovered Turneffe and spend alot of time there. Belize is my favorite place in the world!
