See Belize Half Moon Caye
in all its Glory
Belize half moon caye is ecotourism at it’s finest for everyone’s enjoyment. A reserve you’ll not want to miss. For birding, and other wildlife viewing, sight seeing, snorkeling, scuba diving, or just plain relaxing and soaking up the delectable sights and sounds of paradise, you’ve got to come here.
Half Moon Caye, located at the southeast corner of Lighthouse Reef Atoll, was the first reserve to be established by the Natural Parks System Act of 1981.
One of the main reasons that the natural monument was created, was to protect the Red-footed Booby bird and its rookery. The Magnificent Frigatebird shares the rookery with the Red-footed Booby, and both species coexist in apparent harmony.
Some ninety-eight species of birds have been recorded on the Caye, of which some seventy-seven are migrants. Regular winter migrants include Ospreys, Mangrove Warblers, and White-crowned Pigeons.
The Iguana, the Wish Willy, and the Lizard are permanent residents on the island, while the Loggerhead Turtle and the Hawksbill Turtle come ashore annually to lay their eggs.
