Best dive sites in Ambergris Caye

There is a great variety of dive sites from shallow coral gardens to steep walls as well as canyons, channels, seagrass beds, and mangrove sites. Diving the Great Blue Hole is an absolute must but do note that it is a deep dive. You have to go beyond 100ft (30m) to see the cave and its formations (max depth 130ft). The caves are spectacular! Other areas that must be visited include Lighthouse Reef, Turneffe Atoll, and the Hol Chan Marine Reserve which is just off Ambergris Caye. Wherever you dive, visibility is likely to stretch beyond 100ft (30m).

Snorkeling in Ambergris Caye

The Belize Barrier Reef is perfect for snorkelers. You’ll be able to access many of the same areas as divers do with the help of a snorkeling tour. These are easily arranged through any operator on Ambergris Caye. At Shark Ray Alley, you’ll also be able to get close to stingrays and nurse sharks.

What to see

The large creatures often spotted during dives are friendly nurse sharks, stingrays, spotted eagle rays, and green sea turtles. Nurse sharks around Ambergris Caye are known to be rather inquisitive so don’t be alarmed to see them coming up really close. Besides that, there are many lobsters, damsel fish, barracuda and trevally.

Around seagrass beds near the mangrove swamps, see queen conch, juvenile fish and also juvenile lobsters or a critically endangered manatee. Around the atolls, Nassau grouper are common and you can find some critters like nudibranch, green moray eels and lots of basslets.

Resort Description

Xanadu Island Resort is a tranquil boutique hotel, just a five-minute boat ride from the world's second largest barrier reef and within easy reach of the Great Blue Hole.

Nestled amongst tropical indigenous gardens, eco-friendly Xanadu is right on the beach front overlooking the world’s second largest barrier reef and the Caribbean Sea.

Located a mile south of San Pedro Town on the island of Ambergris Caye, Xanadu is close enough to enjoy the amenities of the town yet far enough away to feel totally immersed in nature.

These beautiful natural grounds, the beachfront Jacuzzi and walking-distance PADI dive center are what keep divers coming back year after year, and contribute to Xanadu's place in the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame as a Top 5 San Pedro Hotel.
