The Lighthouse Reef is far more than just the Great Blue Hole

The waters of the Lighthouse Reef are some of the hemisphere’s most diverse and pristine. World Famous dive sites surround the immediate shores of Long Caye, and the Great Blue Hole is just a short boat ride away. Great schools of fish swim around you as you explore the nearby snorkeling and dive sites with turtles, grouper, bright corals and sponges.

On the Caye, walk the beaches and jungle paths from one side of the Caye to the other in communion with the jungle and mangroves. Discover the wonders of the inland diversity from “Wish Willy” iguanas to the Osprey, Herons and Ibis in gentle gatherings. Bring a sharp eye, and maybe some field glasses – if you are lucky you can help us expand our ever-growing “life list” of birds seen on Long Caye. Dozens of resident and migratory bird species are everywhere.

Circumnavigate the Caye on a Kayak or Paddle Board and find a secluded beach for a picnic. The calm waters inside the reef and persistent easterly trade-winds create an ideal environment for wind-based water sports. From a small collapsible kayak sail to serious aerial kiteboarding, the conditions are just right.

When Research Groups are visiting the Caye, there are opportunities for families and individuals to learn and participate in exciting long term research projects happening on Long Caye.

At night, have a bonfire and dance in the sand to some cool Island Music at the North Point Beach. On the New Moon, with no ambient light to interfere, Long Caye is an Astronomer’s Delight. You can engage in some serious star-gazing. Find yourself, lose yourself, make a new decision each morning and follow the breeze.

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.
