Welcome to Long Caye

Previously, the cay had a bit of a 'ghost island' feel about it, with few permanent residents, a couple of private homes and two laid-back accommodation options. The crumbling state of some of the infrastructure, including the western dock, adds to the feeling of an abandoned paradise.

That said, it is close to some of Belize's best diving sites, and a more spacious option than being holed up on a live-aboard dive boat. Overnighting here means you'll make it to the Blue Hole before the big dive boats arrive from San Pedro, to have the site to yourself.
