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 located 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 immediately around the wildlife reservation isn't exactly well-known for its array of meal options, but visitors willing to go farther afield may discover a place where they can eat a dish or two. Bushy's Place, which has a menu full of Belizean meals, will be of particular interest to visitors looking for a convenient meal.

Nearby Attractions

Additional local activities include 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 attraction in the area.
