If you ever visit Caye Caulker…

Although you can swim off some of the public docks on Caye Caulker, this is where most people come to “the beach.” It”s called The Split, because Hurricane Hattie ripped the island in half in 1961. I imagine the deteriorated dock is a vestige of the hurricane.

Even just from right here, you can swim next to spotted eagle rays and needlefish, among others. It is a common place to snorkel, but be wary of boats coming through the Split. A guy got run over and his teeth knocked out while I was there, because he had his head under the water snorkeling when a boat sped through.
