Testimonial (Belize Forum):
"Hi everybody - I'm new to this board, but not new to Belize. I'm posting to let you know that a very special experience awaits you at French Louie Caye. We stayed there in June when we went south to see the Whale Sharks. We had the whole island to ourselves (except for the caretaker who cooked for us and took us snorkeling and fishing, and the dogs who played with us) for three blissful days. Seahorse Dive Shop picked us up at the island to go out to see the whale sharks. Accommodation - rustic by comfy - food out of this world fresh - caught fish, lobster, etc. Hot showers, solar electricity, gas range and even a refrigerator for beer. The little caye is surrounded by it's own fringe reef with truly wonderful coral and lots of big fish - for those wishing to spontaneously jump in and snorkel this is a perfect spot.
