Just a note to let visitors to Caye Caulker know that all beaches on Caye Caulker, and in deed in all of Belize are PUBLIC. It is Queensland (the first 60 feet) and for public use. So if a property owner tells you to get off his/her beach, they are wrong to do so. The police can't/won't come and remove you from the beach, as long as you are behaving yourself and not doing anything illegal.

She is helping you out here, but don't focus too much on the 60 ft part. Erosion is a factor. You can see where the beach is and it is yours to use.

Thanks for the clarification Dane. Anyone posting a "Private Beach" sign or advertising a private beach is just fooling themselves.

Thanks for the info about the public beach and Earth Day... will get some people involved and help out.

There are some nice sunrise and sunset beach areas. ALL are public, weather there is businees or private home there. Enjoy the views with respect to the property owners in front of these areas!

Happy Views!

Hmmm! If all beaches are public how come no one can step foot at the Tourism Village? Isn't that private property?

We are talking about beaches on Caye Caulker, not riverfront property in Belize City.

So, how come you can't go to the public beaches of Caye Chapel without some guard chasing you off? Or how come you can't just dock up at Tobacco Caye and claim you came to come on the beach? Different rules for different islands? Why so?

No guard ever chased me off Caye Chapel.I have been there amny times. The only time I stopped at Tobacco they greeted me and ignored me. I have gone in Tourist Village at my leisure. There is little reason to do so except at night and that guy is in court to let him open back up.

You be a white boy, dude. That opens many doors in this country. If you are a local they surely don't greet you the same way and there ain't no public beach.
