An island that measures just four miles long, you may not expect to find much in the way of attractions on Caye Caulker  -- and you would be right.  The pace of life here is slow-going, and once on the island most people spend their days doing little more than relaxing.  

Beaches

Although you won't find several beaches in the area, there is at least one within reach, South Beach. <p>South Beach is a clean and quiet beach on the south-east edge of Ambergris. Connected to a resort and with a few bars open to the public, it's a great spot to stop by, relax, and grab a drink, away from any big crowds.</p>
