The Split, Caye Caulker: Address, The Split Reviews: 4/5

About
Great place to spend the day! There is a great bar and grill called The Lazy Lizard that has excellent food and cold drinks. The split is a body of water separating North and South Caye Caulker. It is a great place to snorkel for free. There is a dock for sun bathing and easy access to the water. There is also a fishing area for those that want to try their luck. Kayaks and paddle boards are available for rent.

Good to see, then move on.

Probably the only touristy spot in Caye Caulker. It is worth a visit, but don't spend your whole trip there or you will miss out on many authentic spots.

The split is a must place to go in Caye Caulker. Very lively. Music is great and the drinks and food from Lazy Lizard are very good. Very fun and friendly atmosphere.

If you like a louder atmosphere, then the split is for you! If you would prefer a quieter spot to relax on the water, then this is not the place to go.

Super Fun!

The split and the restaurant the Lazy Lizard is a great place to hang out and eat, drink and hang in Caye Caulker. The split is super fun and is the gathering ground for the island

Awesome time at The Split
May 2021 • Solo
Such a relaxed and friendly vibe- you are bound to put your feet up and enjoy. Many great seaside bars and chairs near the beach. Great picture opportunity in front of “The Split” sign. Music is played from one of the cafe bars, so the vibe is really easygoing and fun-filled. A good mix of locals and tourists enjoying their time.

sunsets are better at the split

You have to see a sunset at the split, its the best part of the island! We went there in the afternoon to grab a bite and get a coconut rum. In loved with the view and the atmosphere.

This was a place contrarian for Caye Caulker’s chill pace. Good music loud enough but not too loud. Buckets of cold beer.

The Split is very unwelcoming and only are interested in how much money they can make. This does not reflect on the wait staff. They are all great.

Nice deep water

Water was clear and deep, food was subpar compared to everything else I had on the island but serviceable. Needs more flavor

Don't miss it if you go to Caye Caulker
Feb 2021
It was really windy the day we visited, so we would have enjoyed the swimming and lounging in the sun a little more if it had been slightly warmer. We sat in the chairs overlooking The Split to enjoy the sun, birds, and water. We got smoothies from the little shake/smoothie shack nearby.

There is a place you can walk down some stairs and get into the sea water where it's sort of walled off and shallow, almost like a kids pool. You can take a drink and sit on stools in the water there, which would be great on a hot day.

On the east side of that area is a jumping/diving platform where you can jump into the water. The current in the split itself was fairly strong, which you could "ride" like a fast "lazy river" from the shallow area part way down The Split to a ladder where you could climb out. If you missed the ladder though, I'm not sure how you would get out, as it's pretty high up to where the chairs are overlooking the water.

The next day, after we had been out snorkeling on a nice catamaran, we went through The Split to get back to the southeast side of the island where we had embarked. It was a great view of the area from the water.
