Pumpkin Caye is a very beautiful and relaxing private island. We enjoyed a fantastic lunch prepared by our guide, Mark. The beach and views are absolutely beautiful.

Quiet, less crowded little island, beautiful and bucolic, perfect for a lunch stop. The view from the outhouse is the best I have ever seen!

This small caye is a privately owned. You must have a guide that has access and there are several. We went with Mark with Cayequestadventures. We had a wonderful lunch prepared by Mark from his catch of the day from the previous snorkel site, lounged on the beach, there is shallow areas for the kids and great snorkeling around the caye for everyone to enjoy. Then we loaded up for another site. I liked this spot as there were not that many people around which made it that much more special for us.

We too stopped her for a lunch break on a Snorkel trip. The weather was a bit rainy and cloudy the day we went. So getting to the island was a bit of an adventure itself. it's a very small secluded island. Small walk path on the island outlined with conch shells..... a gazillion conch shells!! The island has no amenities besides a bathroom with a view...no door - but it's not needed the way it's situated...but the best view EVER!! Weird but true!

A fisherman came to clean his "catch of the day". After the fish are fileted the scraps get put back into the water, which attract the sting rays, so beautiful to watch them come in to eat!

This great little private island was a stopover place for our snorkeling adventure. There were a couple structures, one which housed the kitchen area and an outhouse (working toilet!). There is also a little sandy beach area. Very pretty, it was a great place for lunch and rest.
