Thatch Caye

9 miles (15 km) or about 25 minutes by boat from Dangriga, Thatch Caye, Stann Creek, Belize

Thatch Caye is all about you and your private island vacation, so you can head out for a day of fishing, diving, sea kayaking, or snorkeling and return to supremely comfortable accommodations. Enjoy a delicious meal in the thatched dining room, sip an ice-cold drink, and surf the Web on the free Wi-Fi in the bar before heading to your seaside cabaña where you'll be lulled asleep by the trade winds (no air-conditioning available). Some of the cabañas are built partly over water, while the slightly more expensive casitas have third-level widow's walks where you can gaze for hours at the sea. Although the resort is billed as an "eco all-inclusive," Thatch Caye's packages don't include alcoholic drinks, fishing, diving, or some tours. You can walk from one end of the island to the other in less than half an hour, and there are three small natural beaches. However, shore snorkeling isn't very good.
