NO SHOES, NO SHIRT, NO PROBLEM - CAYE CAULKER IS WELL KNOWN FOR IT'S
"GO SLOW" ATTITUDE.

I DISCOVERED CAYE CAULKER ON VIRTUALTOURIST.COM. SADLY THAT SITE
DOES NOT EXIST ANY MORE. I WAS A MEMBER FOR 16 YEARS.
TRIPADVISOR BOUGHT IT OUT AND THEN DESTROYED THE COMPETITION!

IT WAS A SIMILAR PICTURE TO THIS ONE BY A MEMBER CALLED VULINDLELA
THAT ATTRACTED ME TO CAYE CAULKER.
IF YOU COME ACROSS MY BLOG HERE JEREMY.... THANKS MATE :)

CAYE CAULKER AND THE RELAXED TIME THAT WE HAD HERE CERTAINLY WAS
THE BEST WAY TO END OUR 6 WEEK HOLIDAY. HERE WE JUST LAID BACK,
CHILLED WITH THE LOCALS OVER A FEW VERY CHEAP RUM COCKTAILS AND
FRESH SEAFOOD.

WHAT A VIEW TO CHILL TO! :)

OUR HOTEL WAS RIGHT NEAR THE SPIT INLET AND THE LAZY LIZARD BEACH BAR.
WE ALSO HAD OUR OWN PIER ON THE BEACH HERE WHERE WE COULD SWIM
WITH THE FISH.

SEADREAMS HOTEL - GIVING BACK TO THE ISLAND.

NOT ONLY WAS THIS HOTEL IN A FABULOUS LOCATION ON A QUIET STREET CLOSE
TO THE SPIT, NOT ONLY DID IT HAVE A LOVELY PRIVATE BEACH PONTOON,
ROOFTOP BAR WITH GREAT VIEWS AND YUMMY HOME STYLE COOKED BREAKFAST
EVERY DAY, BUT THE OWNERS STARTED UP THE HIGH SCHOOL ON CAYE CAULKER
AND HELP FUND IT.

BY STAYING HERE, A SMALL PORTION OF OUR ACCOMMODATION MONEY IS GIVEN
TO THE HIGH SCHOOL. HOW VERY NICE IS THAT!! :)

WE HAD A VERY NICE 2 BEDROOM GROUND UNIT, VERY CLEAN AND SPACIOUS.
THEY ALSO HAVE BIKES THAT YOU CAN USE TO RIDE AROUND THE ISLAND.
I TOTALLY RECOMMEND THE SEADREAMS HOTEL FOR YOUR STAY HERE.

CAYE CAULKER IS LOCATED A 40MIN FERRY RIDE FROM BELIZE CITY. THE ISLAND
IS ABOUT 5 MILES LONG AND 1.2M WIDE. IF YOU WANT WHITE SANDY BEACHES
THEN THIS PLACE IS NOT FOR YOU. WHAT CAYE CAULKER DOES HAVE IS CULTURE,
AN ABUNDANCE OF FRESH SEAFOOD, FISHING, REEF SNORKLING, DIVING AND A
FANTASTIC SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE.

THE LAZY LIZARD BEACH BAR -

SPEAKING OF SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE, THIS IS THE PLACE TO HANG OUT.

THE LAZY LIZARD BEACH BAR WAS OUR LOCAL. THE VIEW OVER THE SPIT INLET
IS GORGEOUS, THE RUM COCKTAILS YUMMY, SEAFOOD DEVINE, ISLAND MUSIC
AND PEOPLE WATCHING IS THE ORDER OF THE DAY......
ESPECIALLY THE GORGEOUS LOCAL FELLAS..... shhh, don't tell hubby ;)

WE ALSO PLAYED A GAME LIKE COITS WHERE YOU HAD TO TOSS A SMALL RICE
SACK INTO THE HOLE ON A BIT OF BOARD. THERE WAS A LOCAL THAT NO ONE
COULD BEAT BUT WE ALL HAD FUN TRYING :)

MEANWHILE OTHERS WERE EITHER JUMPING OFF A HIGH ROCK INTO THE WATER
ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SPIT OR CHILLING WITH COOL DRINK RIGHT IN THE
WATER UNDER A SHADE SALE WITH TABLES IN THE WATER.

SIP AND DIP

SPEAKING OF THE ABOVE, THERE ARE A FEW BEACH BARS LIKE THIS RIGHT IN
THE WATER. PERFECT WAY TO COOL OFF.

YOU'LL BE PLEASED TO KNOW THAT THERE IS ONE ATM ON CAYE CAULKER.
IT IS LOCATED INSIDE THE ATLANTIC BANK ON THE STREET PARALLEL TO THE
MAI STREET, BACK ONE.

I HEARD THAT ON THE WEEKEND THE ATM MAY RUN OUT OF MONEY SO GET
IN EARLY.

SPORTS BAR

IF YOU ARE A SPORTS FAN LIKE HUBBY, YOU'LL BE PLEASED TO KNOW THAT
THERE IS A SPORTS BAR HERE LOCATED RIGHT AT THE PIER WHERE THE BOATS
COME INTO THE ISLAND.

WE ARRIVED AT HAPPY HOUR.... COCKTAILS ALL ROUND. HUBBY COULD
WATCH THE FOOTBALL AND I WAS HAPPY PEOPLE WATCHING.
NICE WALK BACK TO OUR HOTEL ALONG THE BEACHFRONT.

NO SHIRT, NO SHOES, NO PROBLEM ;)

YES, NO DRESS CODE ON CAYE CAULKER. MOST RESTAURANTS HAVE BIG
WOODEN BENCHES AND SWINGS FOR SEATS. THAT WAS FUN, SWINGING
WHILST SIPPING A COOL DRINK AND WATCHING THE STUNNING VIEW
OVER THE CARIBBEAN SEA.

LIKE IN NEW ORLEANS, YOU CAN ALSO ASK FOR A DRINK TO GO. ONE
RESTAURANT WE EVEN GOT A FREE RUM PUNCH TO TAKE AWAY.

STREETS OF CAYE CAULKER -

THERE ARE NO CARS HERE. THEY HAVE GOLF BUGGIES AND BICYCLES.
WE ENJOYED OUR DAILY WANDER AROUND THE SANDY STREETS :)

MOJOS FISHING

HOWIE AND JESSE HAD ALREADY TRIED FLOAT AND FLY SALMON FISHING
IN VANCOUVER CANADA. HERE WITH MOJOS FISHING THEY WENT DEEP
SEA FISHING AND CAUGHT BARRACUDA, MACKEREL AND REEF BREAM.
AFTER WE WERE ABLE TO EAT SOME OF THE FISH CAUGHT.
THE LAZY LIZARD BEACH BAR COOKED IT 3 DIFFERENT WAYS FOR US
ALONG WITH SOME NICE SALAD.... YUUUUM! :)

WE WERE SAD TO LEAVE THIS IDEALIC DESTINATION :(
FROM HERE WE HEADED BACK TO AUSTRALIA VIA HOUSTON TO LA,

THEN HEADED BACK HOME VIA HONG KONG FOR A FEW DAYS TO
ADJUST BACK TO PERTH TIME.
