Those who invest in Belize real estate and businesses keep an eye on popular “Best Of” lists that often highlight the beautiful country and display its wonders for the world to see. We’re proud to point out that Ambergris Caye, the most popular island in Belize, has once again put Belize at the top of a prestigious and competitive list. It recently won Trip Advisor’s 2014 Traveler’s Choice Award for Best Island in the World for the second year in a row.
With its turquoise, Caribbean waters and stunning views, there is no
doubt visitors will find the caye to be a beautiful place to get away
from the stresses of everyday life, to relax and refresh yourself, and
to witness the spectacle of some very interesting antiquity.
Whether you are interested in fishing, sky diving (which is
particularly popular during the winter months), snorkeling and deep sea
diving, walking around San Pedro Town—the only town on the caye—or
simply lounging, there is something for everyone on Ambergris Caye. The
caye is especially known for its Belize Barrier Reef, one of the largest
barrier reefs in the world – second only to Australia’s Great Barrier
Reef – and for its pristine, white sandy beaches. There are also a
number of resorts and hotels on Ambergris Caye, some of which may be
available for investment right here at Belize Shores Realty.
A community of Maya lived on Ambergris Caye in Pre-Columbian times,
and they made highly polished red ceramics, some of which can still be
found on the island. The Mayan civilization’s presence in Belize is of
particular interest to historians, both professional and amateur, and
there are relics to be seen here that will fascinate the most ardent
Ambergris Caye has a lot to offer, and if you can imagine watching a
breathtaking sunset over the Caribbean while sipping a glass of wine,
you can imagine the special beauty of Ambergris Caye. The people are
always friendly and welcoming, there is always something close by to
delight your senses.
