Description
Microsoft search engine Bing brought a lot of attention to Ambergris Caye and Belize today as they featured an amazing photograph of our beautiful island on their home page on the eve of our Independence Day, September 21. It was a photograph by Michael Melford; an aerial picture of the southernmost tip of Ambergris Caye. The photograph is captivatingly beautiful and true to our clear and turquoise waters that surround Ambergris Caye.

But the photographic capture has many guessing as to where exactly this image was taken. Apparently, many have not seen this part of our island. Well Ambergris Today knows a bit of information about the photograph featured on Bing.

The area is known as the Siete Canales, or Seven Channels in English, that is located at the southernmost tip of the island. Those who have not appreciated enjoying the view by air as they fly into the island via the local airlines may have travelled along the channels with one of the water taxis, or out on a fishing trip.

The area is very active, a popular spot for fishing (flat fishing in particular). According to Abner Marin of Go Fish Belize, the channels are teeming with marine life and are great areas for sports fishing as well. The best thing is that the Siete Canales area is a protected marine area and part of the Hol Chan Marine Reserve (Zone C). Itís an excellent spot for spotting turtles and manatees!
