Most of Belize is flat, but toward the west the landscape becomes mountainous. Doyle’s Delight is the highest peak, at 3,805 feet (1,160 m). Belize’s coast lies on the Caribbean Sea. You’ll find rainforest covers almost half of inland Belize.
Belize has islands off the coast called cayes (pronounces “keys”). These Caribbean islands have palm trees and mangrove forests. They are surrounded by bright-blue water that is studded with coral reefs and atolls.
