Long Caye at Glover’s Reef
Our private island in Belize water sports center is unique not only in Belize, but in the entire Caribbean. We started out by kayaking island to island, based from Placencia. Several years later we moved out to Glover’s Reef when we got our own island. Our goal was to create a Belize vacation destination for people like us, who preferred the island in as natural a state as possible. Obviously if you build a building, that is some level of development. But throughout the region there are few places that remain rustic by design, where the grounds are natural and the facilities are ecological, using solar and wind power.
Our facility on Long Caye offers sixteen cabanas, a solar and wind-powered kitchen, hammock, surf, and sea kayak palapas, a dock for watching the surfers at sunrise, dozens of kayaks, sailboards, surf boards, and surf kayaks, as well as a complete kitesurf center, a full service dive shop (the only thing not owned by Slickrock), and one of the best beaches in Belize!
There is no maid service, air conditioning, wifi, flush toilets (we don’t want to flush anything into the sea), or television. The breeze keeps temperatures well below what they are on the mainland. But we do have the important things in life: coolers permanently loaded with Fantas and Belikin beer, and cabanas perched right above the waves. It’s the best in adventure travel — right down to the Belizean guides who kayak with you all day and then sit down with you to dine.
Depending on your own experience, our island will either be the most cushy camp or the most rustic resort you have ever been to. It’s more like Gilligan’s Island than Club Med. Every cabana has single or double beds, solar-powered lighting, and a hammock and lounge chairs on the porch (see the Belize cabanas page for more photos and information).
We drink purified rainwater, and we bathe with well water pumped by the sun (not heated, the showers are about 80 degrees). Composting toilets complete this ecologically friendly set-up. Our spacious island (13.5 acres) and comfortable facilities ensure your enjoyment without compromising the adventure of living on an undeveloped island. Best of all, you can stay active as much as you want, or hang in your hammock all day. See our island amenities page for more information.
Every Adventure Island experience includes a Digital Detox. No wifi or 24/7 news cycle! Wake to the sounds of chirping gekkos. You will experience a wonderful thing: Island Time.
