A beautiful and mesmerizing island off the coast of Placencia, Belize, Laughing Bird Caye was declared a National Park in 1991. This gorgeous caye is set over an area of 1.8 acres and is named after the laughing gull which breeds in the island.
Laughing Bird Caye is considered one of the top snorkeling destinations in southern Belize due to the island’s unique structure which adds to a potpourri of coral habitants and colorful marine life.
A variety of coral reef habitats cover the area and the island has a distinct elongate shape that forms a faro. One of the best explanations of a faro is an angular atoll that is situated on a reef. The faro at Laughing Bird Caye is elevated and enclosed giving the island its shallow waters.
