Heatwave: Why A Belize Private Island Is The Hottest Way To Vacation This Summer

by Carolee Chanona

With Spring officially here as of March 20, it’s time to shake off that winter gloom, bask in the sunshine, and start looking ahead to summer—what better way than with a trip? Things are heating up as more and more travelers venture back out into the world, and there’s one sizzling hotspot proving it’s the hottest way to vacation this summer: the private Ray Caye Island Resort. Sure, there are yacht-filled hotspots like Ibiza, Cannes, or even Lake Como for being the moment like those high-end European destinations, but it’s also not appealing to the average traveler. Found on 7-acres of palpable paradise, this private island resort is the workaround you’ve been craving—and can afford. From island hopping to fishing offshore and sliding into the Caribbean Sea, keep reading to find your next vacation hotspot.

Unwind to Waves of the Sea

Walk in to the blues of the Caribbean on Ray Caye.

Located 18 miles from the Placencia Peninsula, Ray Caye’s sole purpose is to let you unwind with the sound of waves in the distance. After all, with a tagline like “the Caribbean before it got crowded,” Ray Caye has the vibes (and amenities!) to match that claim. Besides the mile of private beach, the full-service on-site eatery serves up a rotating menu of gourmet meals every day, though I’ll bet the hashed Lionfish will stand out very quickly as your favorite breakfast side. With a name like the Lionfish Grill, the chefs don’t shy away from the fresh bounty of the second-largest barrier reef in the world just offshore.

When not dining, Ray Caye guests can settle into one of their oceanfront suites, oceanfront cabanas, and reef villas. There’s also an island house for side-by-side lodging from the second floor, and a slew of Caribbean-blue hammocks hoisted underneath.

But of course, it’s a private island experience after all: with no more than 50 guests at a time, guests can even exclusively rent out the entire island (or, just half) at a time. Rooms boast a private deck, air conditioning, ceiling fans, Wi-fi connection, and all the extras you would expect from a resort that has pledged to deliver the best service, amenities, and experiences in Belize.

A Summer To Remember with Unmatched Service
