Community, Conservation & Culture in Harmony

  • Unique & Exclusive

    Long Caye is not just a resort, it is an ecological community on a private island alone in the Lighthouse Reef Atoll. To live here is to be immersed in the shimmering tropical waters, jungle and breezes of the Lighthouse Reef 24/7.  Hidden away, one might never discover this island, which has remained untouched by highways, chain-restaurants, nightclubs and casinos. What exists is something so fresh, so rich and yet so remote and personal, all you can do is fall in love with nature and the elements.

  • The Great Blue Hole

    Long Caye is also the closest developable real estate to UNESCO World Heritage sites, the Great Blue Hole and Half Moon Caye. The Atoll is also home to the highest concentration of world-class dive sites in all of Belize with some found less than a mile off the Long Caye’s coast.

  • Eco-Comfort

    Want to arrive with your refrigerator full and fresh clean sheets?  Would you like a private chef or housekeeper while you or your guests are visiting your home?  Concierge Services are available for Long Caye owners. Owners on Long Caye enjoy privileged access and discounts on amenities and services, including transportation, tours, dining and lodging. Have a drink and a meal, buy some local art, dance to some cool island music.  You might take a yoga class, or get a massage too.

  • A Piece of Paradise

    With more than 19,000 tourists a year visiting the Lighthouse Reef Atoll, Long Caye is well positioned to offer a unique experience for those in search of a vacation property or a retirement home site as well those seeking an ultra-low-density, luxury Eco-Resort experience. Now is the time to invest in Long Caye!

Our Philosophy

Living on Long Caye is existing on a private island where you are an integral part of the eco-system.  You are part of how the island and the community stays healthy.  The Community on Long Caye (the development itself) is designed to promote and sustain the health of the surrounding tropical reef and jungle environment. Residents and businesses, understand that by honoring the Eco-guidelines we can “have our cake and eat it, too” by respecting the natural assets. Your parcel and home is a part of the overall design of all-encompassing, unsurpassed access to an extraordinary ecological system while ACTIVELY preserving the the Caye and its surrounds.  We have designed the community with a long term vision.

All of Long Caye is essentially a preserve. Stewardship of the surrounding environment is a core value for us. We take a long term, holistic approach to building community on Long Caye, through the mindful, yet aggressive, adoption of leading edge environmentally friendly technologies. We seek to demonstrate to the world the achievements possible when people, passion and technology team up with nature to create an extraordinary living and visiting experience. Our Conservation Ethos is enacted in perpetuity by the Eco-Guidelines – and they ensure that Long Caye will be here for future generations. As stewards of the atoll, we will not sacrifice our ecological standards or compromise our principals.

We hope to bridge the gap between the enjoyment of access and conscientious preservation of the natural environment – to prove that environmental assets can be preserved, protected AND enjoyed in a fashion that actually promotes the long term health of such assets for the greater good. Community and Conservation priorities are fulfilled with a deep and abiding respect for the Local Culture that has preceded us for centuries in the Lighthouse Reef atoll. We are friends, supporters and business partners to the fishers that have responsibly used the Lighthouse Reef for their livelihood for generations. We understand and promote sustainable business in the Atoll and on the Caye.
