The islands that line 200 miles of Belize's Caribbean coastline are some of the country's most popular tourist destinations. There are plenty of services ready to sail you between the islands and the mainland.

If you're looking for a way to change the pace of your vacation, consider taking a trip between the Cayes and the mainland. After all, both locations have different atmospheres.

Riding the Ferries

When traveling between islands, consider how you want to get around. While the larger islands have small plane services, most people consider traveling by boat to be the more scenic way to go.

There are plenty of ferry services to choose from, but the largest offer routes to the following locations:
