About Thatch Caye Resort

Just 9 miles from Dangriga in south-central Belize, Thatch Caye Resort is an island complex that forms an 11 acre marine park. Two miles from the second largest reef in the world, Thatch Caye Resort is inside the protected South Water Caye Marine Reserve, a 117,878 acre site in the Coco Plum Range of islands.

If you love nature paths, soft white sand, easy access to scuba and fishing, gentle ocean breezes, and sparkling azure waters, then this island will indulge all of your senses.   Thatch Caye is a “hand made” eco-resort developed without the use of heavy machinery. In addition to traditional off-grid generating methods, solar and wind power is used to provide clean, quiet power for the island.  The island is located is a short kayak ride to one of only 12 world renowned bird sanctuaries in the Caribbean where hundreds of frigates, boobies and pelicans make their home.

The entrance to Thatch Caye is a protected waterway with thatch roofed boat houses, walkways and bridges. An aquarium graces the marina with an over water palapa to savor Belizean sunsets or gaze at the water dance below. Our East-facing boardwalk runs along the edge of Thatch Caye for nearly a thousand feet. A T-shaped dock with hammocks under shade connects the boardwalk to a launching dock where your sea adventures begin. Sea kayaks are available to explore the many cayes and mangrove habitats of Central Belize.
