Scuba Diving in Belize
The Keys (pronounced keys, which are offshore atolls) and its coral reef are the main attractions in Belize. The Keys are coral, sand or mangrove islands, located between the mainland and the coral reef, also on the coral reef and still within the perimeter of the offshore atoll reef. Although Mangrove Keys are normally uninhabitable by humans, they provide superior habitat for birds and marine life. Many birds, fish, shellfish and marine organisms begin their lives within the protection of mangroves.
