Sitting atop a thriving barrier reef and lapped by tranquil Belizean waters, Coral Caye is a bohemian island getaway, perfect for escapism. Be it just the two of you or a gathering of your nearest and dearest, this exclusive two-acre islet makes light work of welcoming just 10 select guests. Mornings are spent snorkelling from the jetty, afternoons unwinding with an al-fresco massage, and evenings dining beneath the stars. Best of all, it’s all yours for as long as you’ll have it, with no other guests and the freedom to enjoy island life at your own pace.
At just a 25-minute boat ride from Belize’s mainland, Coral Caye offers undisturbed serenity and castaway vibes. Lined in mangroves, peppered with small beaches and surrounded by those glorious Caribbean blues, it’s an island paradise you’ll never want to leave.
Hosting up to ten guests across three colourful dwellings, Coral Caye leaves the invitation list to you. The shell-adorned Great House serves as a laid-back living/dining space, with two further cottages providing cosy bedrooms and hammocks strung between nearby palm trees. Resident caretakers Alberto and Paulina prepare delightfully honest meals of fresh-caught seafood and traditional Creole dishes and can organise a number of add-on services such as guided fishing tours and a private attendant.
WHY WE LIKE IT
Coral Caye is what you make it; an excuse to party late into the night with your closest friends, or the opportunity for a truly secluded romantic getaway. Effortlessly combining chic barefoot living with authentic Caribbean luxury, being marooned on this desert island is an offer we can’t refuse.
