Ray Caye is a small and remote tropical island located 17 miles east of Placencia village in the southern region of Belize and has just 9 rooms. There is healthy coral on the south side of the island and snorkelling can be done from the pier. A highlight for anyone staying on the island is its close proximity to the Belize Barrier Reef for exceptional diving, there is also excellent snorkelling at nearby Silk Cayes.
Rooms: are in Oceanfront Cabanas with either one or two queen beds and are duplex units, with private balconies on the side. The honeymoon cabana is standalone unit and there are additional rooms. Rooms have air-conditioning, wifi, flat screen televisions with DVD player.
Dining: occurs in the Lionfish Grill where the menu provides a good selection of meals cooked with local produce and fresh seafood.
Onsite: There is a small, freshwater pool near the bar and a grass volleyball court in the centre of the island. The island has a PADI dive operation onsite and there are ocean kayaks, pedal boats with canopy shade and Hobie Cats for guest use. Guided snorkelling trips to nearby Silk Cayes are available by boat or kayak.
Our Comment: This beautiful little island has very comfortable accommodation, stunning views and excellent proximity to the barrier reef and offers snorkelling from the pier. This is a top recommendation for avid snorkellers and divers and anyone looking to relax in a remote island setting. A few nights at Ray Caye combined with a stay in Placencia is an excellent way to see the highlights of the less visited southern region of Belize. Note. this is a small island and facilities can get busy with moorings during peak season.
