Fodor's Review

Rent your own private island 8 mi (13 km) from Placencia with a lovely coral sand beach and a reef for snorkeling and fishing, and enjoy lobster and fish freshly prepared by your own cook. Accommodations here are basic: a simple, two-room cabin by the sea, tropically pink and green, with shower and bathroom facilities in a separate building, and you can also pitch a tent on the beach. The pristine reef and shallow waters around the island are safe for children, making this a perfect place for a family vacation. This is truly the way it used to be in Belize. Private island rental—you're the only party on the island except for the cook/caretaker—is BZ$4,653 for a week, double, including house, all meals (but not alcohol), use of kayaks and other equipment, round-trip transport from Placencia, and taxes. Shorter rentals and day trips also available, such as three-night package for BZ$2,520
