Mosquito and Savannah Cayes are small, less than a few acres, and densely wooded with mangroves; swampy interiors. Los Salones are two very small cayes, much smaller than Mosquito and Savannah and also swampy. None of these cayes have any resorts on them, and except for a very small beach on the backside of Savannah, no beaches. Savannah, Mosquito, and Los Salones are quasi-protected by GreenReef as bird sanctuaries. Blackadore Caye farther to the north is 2 miles long and 1-2 football fields wide. Very low lying (at most, 2.5 ft above sea level) but relatively dry and mostly with sawgrass (no mangroves whatsoever). Nothing in the way of beaches on either side, and the front side is very rocky (the back side is less so, but the water's very shallow). There's an old coconut plantation on the north side of the island, and a now decrepit concrete dock on the back end. The caye is inhabited mainly by blue crabs. Cayo Rosario and all the other smaller cayes in the northern part of the bay and mainly mangrove islands surrounded by shallow water. There are no resorts anywhere on these islands, and little in the way of beaches. Many of them are also quasi-protected as bird sanctuaries. Let me know if you need additional information.
