Pelican's Pouch

South Water Caye region

This is an unbelievably idyllic hideaway on the beautiful island of Southwater Caye. The island is only 15 acres in size and Pelican's Pouch occupies 3.5 acres at the southern, sandy tip. Suited to the traveller looking for a very natural experience, with the barrier reef visible from one side of the island and Victoria Peak in view from the other, you are surrounded by palm trees, pelicans and frigate birds.

Rooms: are in 8 individual cottages or duplexes hidden amongst the palm trees, each having unique characteristics designed to enhance your enjoyment of the surrounding environment, such as situated over the water or with a stargazing platform. Rooms have queen size bed and single or double, ceiling fans and porches. Four further rooms are located on the first floor of the main building.

Dining: is single menu option and occurs on the large open air deck. Meals include tropical fruits, fresh seafood, salads and local dishes. There is a fully stocked bar

Onsite: A gentle sloping sandy beach at the southern tip of the resort is an ideal place to swim, relax or snorkel. Complimentary kayaks are available for guest's use and there is snorkelling gear for hire.

Nearby Excursions: Snorkelling can take place from the beach here. The island is in the Southwater Caye Marine Reserve and has some spectacular snorkelling and diving, snorkelling trips are available to several snorkel spots further afield and a night snorkel for the more adventurous. Diving can also be arranged with advance notification. The waters are crystal clear around the island and you will see a large diversity of coral, tropical fish and should see Spotted Eagle Rays here.

Our Comment: This resort is ideal for anyone looking to escape modern day life. It is impossible not to relax when you are surrounded by such natural beauty and an abundance of pelicans. All the cottages offer something different, Heron's Hideaway is popular with honeymooners for its privacy, but our favourite is the Osprey's Nest with its views across the reef crest and view of sunrise.
