Our island is surrounded by private beaches.

 

About our mattresses: Many people ask about just what kind of mattresses we have on the island. We had our single mattresses custom-made by Jack's Plastic of Aztec, NM. He manufactures the best air mattresses that all river guides are now using. His standard 'Paco Pads' are about 1-2" thick. The pads we had him make for us are 5-6" thick. So they are the size of a standard single bed, but don't collect salt water. Because we are RIGHT on the shore and breaking waves break in front of our cabanas all day, every day, we get a lot of salt spray. Our double beds are standard double bed mattresses. Having Jack make custom doubles just wasn't feasible, so these we have to replace more often.

 

There is a hammock on Long Caye with your name on it!

Featured on the cover of Outside magazine, our Long Caye resort was built to preserve the island in its natural state, and our lodge facilities are kept rustic by design. Guests love their thatch-roofed cabanas, each complete with a porch overlooking the coral of Glover's Reef.

This is the most luxurious island "base camp" you've ever seen! Our spacious island (13.5 acres) and rustic facilities ensure your comfort without compromising the adventure of living on an undeveloped and uncrowded island. You'll notice our windows on our beach huts don't have screens and we don't use mosquito netting. This is because we have a rare island in Belize where bugs really aren't a problem, and when they are present, we spray. And, best of all, a hammock with your name on it is waiting under the palms!

Private Island Lodging

Guests stay in two-person beach huts, perched above the surf. Each cabana has beds with custom-made air mattresses and a porch with hammocks and lounge chairs. Luggage benches and a small closet are provided and the cabins are lit with solar-powered lights. No air-conditioning is necessary since the ever-present breeze keeps the temperatures well below what they are on the mainland. There is no plumbing in the cabanas, for a complete description of bathroom facilities visit our Island Amenities page.

 

You'll never want to leave. Everyone sleeps in beach-front cabanas. We have seven double-bed cabanas and the rest have two or three single beds. Most of our cabanas sleep 2, but some sleep 3 and some sleep 4. We provide mattresses, linens, blankets, and pillows. Double occupancy is a necessity when trips are full, so single travelers may be roomed with another single traveler of the same gender. Families of 3 be roomed together, depending on the ages of family members. We will not reserve specific cabanas in advance as the trip leader must consider the needs of everyone in the group before assigning cabanas.
