Belize is an entirely beautiful country that has over 239 miles of coastline with 200+ islands or cayes. The most popular cayes are Caye Caulker, Ambergris Caye, and Tobacco Caye. However, Belize has a number of private islands that sometimes accommodate celebrities, and can only be accessed by a private boat or helicopter. Here are three of the most exclusive destinations in Belize:  

Coral Caye 

This is a very intimate island away from the hustle and bustle of the outside world, where your only neighbors will be the friends you travel with and the various bird and lizard species that inhabit the island. Located 8 miles out of Placencia Village; Coral Caye was once a fishing camp but has now been renovated to suit your luxury needs. They offer two cottages – Coral Cottage and the Seahorse Cottages; and the Great House. These can accommodate from two to ten guests. This entire island comes with caretakers that provide your morning coffee, fresh fruit, breakfast, lunch, and fresh-caught seafood dinner. For an extra fee, you can experience al-fresco massages, hire a private chef, pre-order grocery items, or make a special treat for any occasion.

Ray Caye  

A secluded island surrounded by small beaches that can be found in the southern part of Belize. This island transmits a pure romance, making it perfect for a wedding, honeymoon, or a couples’ getaway. But that’s not all; you can also host yoga retreats, family/friends getaway, and so much more. This island hosts the Main House where guests can have their own room and a private deck as well as Oceanfront Cabañas that open into small private beaches around the island. Facilities on the island include their restaurant ‘Lionfish Grill’ that serves Western and Belizean cuisine, as well as a full bar service for tropical cocktails. They also have their own PADI dive shop, with free kayaks and paddleboard usage.

Cayo Espanto 

Located three miles from the northern island of Ambergris Caye; this luxury island is the perfect place for both couples and singles who want to experience a different world where they get to be pampered and relaxed the entire time. The accommodations include seven airconditioned villas complete with two personal butlers assigned to each, a private dock, and an infinity plunge pool. The chef visits each villa every day to review the menu as there are no restaurants here, so you can have your meal inside or on your private dock – which gives you ultimate seclusion as if you’re the only one on this island. This is a favorite for many celebrities like Bill Gates, Tiger Woods, and others.
