Goff’s Caye Island Getaway

Goff’s Caye is an island 30 minutes away from Belize City port by boat.

This scenic boat ride takes you past numerous mangrove islands, which are natural habitats for Brown Boobies, Cormorants, Terns and the fierce Frigate birds and occasionally bottle nose dolphins are spotted.

Goff’s Caye sits directly on top of the world’s second largest Barrier Reef making it the best location for a world class snorkeling experience. Goff’s Caye is a natural coral sand island, making it the ultimate beach experience for the entire family; kids can build their dream sand castles or simply splash in its turquoise blue waters. Goff’s Caye measures approximately 1.2 acres. There are no beach chairs, so bring your beach towels and if you wish you can bring your own snacks. On your own you can enjoy a picnic style B–B–Q or Chicken Kabobs, or even grilled lobster tails (when in season); cold beers and other drinks are also on sale.
