Goff's Caye, Belize

Goff's Caye is a small island off the shore of Belize City, Belize. It is situated north of the English Channel and is 1.2 acres (4,900 m2) of sandy land. It sits right on the edge of the Belize Barrier Reef with waters to the south and east being only 0.6 to 3 metres deep.

Goff's Caye is one of the few small islands in Belize that is not privately owned.

The reef off Goff's Caye is considered to be one of the best representatives of a healthy reef system. The area to the northwest of the Caye is known to be a foraging area for sea turtles.
