Caye Caulker North Point Sanctuary Forest Reserve

Declared a nature reserve in 1998, Caye Caulker North Point Sanctuary is a great spot to learn about how animals in one of the marshy areas of Belize live.

Separated from the rest of Caye Caulker by a half of a mile, this tiny land mass is comprised of a littoral forest, marsh lands, mangrove swamps, and a lagoon.

When you reach North Point you'll find a visitor and research center near a picnic spot, plus a platform trail that allows you to walk through the mangroves. On your tour, be on the lookout for lizards, turtles, and birds, but also crocodiles.


Positioned on the island of Caye Caulker, Caye Caulker North Point Sanctuary Forest Reserve invites local customers and vacationers lodging on this part of the island or nearby. But even if you aren't staying nearby, you are free to stop by to enjoy a great time. If you're wondering, San Pedro is to the north-northeast.

North Point is located about a half a mile from Caye Caulker and is only accessible by boat. You can visit as part of a tour or rent kayaks from operators on Front Street to explore the area on your own.
