    Wow! This place was amazing! It is a 30-45 minute boat ride to get out to this remote caye. Once there there are a small number of rooms. Each day breakfast, lunch and dinner are served and they are delicious. There are kayaks and paddle...More

    Pelican Beach Resort in Dangriga owns the southern portion of this 15-acre island, and their part includes the only good sandy beach. The resort consists of several mostly duplex cabins set amongst the coconut palms, so you're "in the trees" with an ocean view beyond....More

    And our 6th stay at Pelican Beach on South Water Caye proves it. My husband and I agree (after over 40 years together) that nothing puts us more in honeymoon mode than vacation time here. It's pure bliss to snorkel together, discovering nature's wonders together,...More
