A private Barrier Reef cay offers great snorkeling and scuba diving That Belize is a natural destination is undeniable. Island resorts with primitive elegance, peaceful beaches and sparkling, fish-filled waters remain much the same as when first discovered by divers in the late 1960s.While Belize has grown into a major dive destination, there are still a few unique little places left that remain somewhat undiscovered. One of these idyllic resorts is Blue Marlin Lodge on South Water Caye. Here you will find a wide range of services on this picturesque palm-covered island just a few miles offshore of Dangriga.An unusual aspect of this privately owned cay is the fact that it is located directly atop the outer edge of the barrier reef, with a natural deepwater channel cut through the large coral heads. This ideal location allows quick and easy access to the terrific dive sites along the southern barrier reef, where marine life is particularly abundant. As a result, South Water Caye enjoys some of the best snorkeling and diving in Belize. Blue Marlin Lodge is conveniently located at the north end of the island, taking full advantage of the cooling trade winds that blow gently across the cay. You'll find 14 double rooms and six bungalows, plus a full-service restaurant, a well-stocked bar, volleyball pit, billiard table and complete PADI dive training facility with dedicated dive boats and scuba instructors.
