Chalk Sound National Park
Photographing and swimming in the turquoise water is a must, and the park also boasts non-aquatic highlights.
There are some fascinating glimpses into the past around here, including rock carvings made by shipwrecked sailors on a rocky hilltop overlooking Sapodilla Bay, back in 1844. Nearby lied the ruined remains of the Mariner Hotel.
On the coastal edge of the lake, fronting the ocean, are the relaxed resorts and expat houses lining Sapodilla Bay and Taylor Bay.
