Named for a collection of crooked logwoods along the shore of a village in Belize, Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary provides a protected area for migratory birds and other local wildlife.

Birdwatchers flock to this area in hopes of catching a glimpse of migrating water birds.


Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary is situated south of Crooked Tree, a hamlet in Orange Walk District; it is 26 miles (42 kilometers) to the south of Orange Walk.

Nearby Restaurants

The area around the nature preserve is not what you could be called known for its selection of food and beverage options, but vacationers with an adventuresome attitude may happen upon one or two places where they can share dinner. Bushy's Place, which has a menu full of Belizean meals, is also the most convenient option for visitors of this nature preserve.

Nearby Attractions

You'll find some additional activities nearby, including Lamanai Mayan Archaeological Site, which is within driving distance in Orange Walk District. You might also consider making the trip to Altun Ha, which is another nearby attraction.
