Do constant demands make you feel like you’re living on everybody else’s schedule? You need a change, which is why successful people don’t apologize for claiming “Me Time.” South Water Caye is the ideal place to do just that, and if you opt to stay at the Blue Marlin Beach Resort, you’ll be anything but blue. Some resorts get you close to Belize’s barrier reef, but South Water Caye sits atop the reef itself, so your visit can literally put you on top of the world.

Never heard of South Water Caye? It’s a private island devoted to both vacationing and science. Walk half a mile in any direction and you can cover every inch since it measures only 18 acres. But every inch is awash in white coral sand, tropical flowers, coconut palm trees and the gentle waves of the Caribbean.

South Water Caye is more than a tropical postcard. It was declared a UNESCO World Hertiage site in 1996 due to the island’s rich bio-diversity—so much so, a marine biology laboratory was established on South Water Caye. This living laboratory acts as a training ground for university students, marine biologists, and the National Science Foundation.

Your short walk gives you access to reasons this island was picked as a marine study center: mangrove forest, lagoons,and nearby offshore atolls.  Here you have opportunities to spot manatees, sea turtles, protected reef species, plants, and birds.

Aside from the important missions of reef conservation, we also focus on your objective(s) of relaxing as well as adventure.

For starters, the Blue Marlin’s “Belize Relaxation Package” truly takes all of the work out of planning.
