Opal Caye

Opal Caye is tucked inside the southern reefs of Belize at the southernmost tip of the Inner Reef Cayes. The sea changes from translucent turquoise to dark blue around its shores, reflective of calm shallows for swimming that give way to deeper water for anchorage.

Opal Caye is tucked inside the southern reefs of Belize at the southernmost tip of the Inner Reef Cayes. The sea changes from translucent turquoise to dark blue around its shores, reflective of calm shallows for swimming that give way to deeper water for anchorage.

Covered in mangroves and jungle foliage, the undeveloped 5.3-acre island could be transformed into a private compound or an ecotourism-based commercial investment. Abundant wildlife calls Opal Caye and the surrounding waters home, including manatees, pelicans, frigates and sea turtles.

While Belize is a relatively small country in Central America, it claims the largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere off its coast. If you enjoy snorkeling or scuba diving, there are several coral reefs around Opal Caye populated with a dazzling multitude of tropical fish and other exotic sea creatures. Because the weather is a near-perfect 82 degrees year round, you can dip into the tropical surf whenever it suits you.

Opal Caye offers total privacy but it’s close to other area islands, and only 15 minutes by boat to the dock at Placencia Village, where you’ll find abundant land-based tours, local cafes, atmospheric bars and plenty of shops to stock up on essential items. The 16-mile-long Placencia Peninsula is rapidly rising to the top of travel lists for the region thanks to its beautiful beaches, calm waters and proximity to the barrier reef.

A new, privately owned international airport is in the works in Placencia, which will make the connections between Opal Caye and North America faster and easier, while the island itself will remain a secluded oasis in the Caribbean Sea. With its untouched waterfront, relaxing views, and diverse wildlife, Opal Caye shines with potential bright enough to rival its namesake gemstone.
