About Ambergris Caye, Belize
Ambergris Caye is a small, charming island situated just south of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, bordered on the west by Guatemala, and north of Honduras. It is the largest of the 200+ islands of Belize at 25 miles long, and is made up of mangroves, sand, and lagoons. Victoria House is located on the south section of the island, which is divided by a river.
Victoria House and Ambergris Caye is also only one mile from the Belize Barrier Reef, the second largest in the world, with coral reefs you can see right up to the nearby shore of our beach, making it easy to find on a snorkel or dive. Scuba diving is a world-famous pastime in this part of Belize, and divers and snorkelers alike can enjoy the fantastic scenery of places like the Hol-Chan Marine Reserve just a short boat ride away.
