Saddle Caye South – Discover the Trees in the Sea
Seven miles southeast of Placencia in the Lark Range is the uninhabited island of Saddle Caye South. The island’s mangrove trees with their arching aerial roots dominate the seascape and the surrounding waters teeming with marine life and wildlife. At Saddle Caye South, snorkel and explore areas of vigorous reef growth that occurs in shallow water only 30 feet from shore, or steep drop offs in the mangrove root with its own diversity, all guarded by the osprey nesting on the island. When paddling to the barrier reef, Saddle Caye South with its small natural beach, its camp shelters and its fire ring is a convenient and comfortable stay for one or more days.
