One of the important things to note about Ambergris Caye is that although there are plenty of swimming and snorkeling spots available, they are to be found in specific locations. While the beaches themselves are exquisite and picturesque, they're also covered in seagrass, which can interfere with spontaneous excursions.

With a bit of planning you'll find a water-friendly, sandy beach nearby; anyone in your resort or hotel can help you locate one. In the meantime, seagrass or no, the gorgeous weather makes the waterside a wonderful place to relax. Besides, the seagrass contributes to the enormous diversity of marine life in the ocean; they serve as fish nurseries.

Ambergris Caye is Adjacent to One of the Biggest Barrier Reefs in the World

The reef makes it host to an absolutely immeasurable variety of unusual animal life, as well as opulent coral formations. This makes it a stand-out spot for snorkelers and divers - it's often listed as one of the top ten in the country. The best snorkeling and dive sites are available by boat, some of them on formalized tours.

There's really no end of places to explore on Ambergris Caye. If you're interested in snorkeling or diving, or a host of other activities, you can find a lot of adventurous things to do on the island.
