Lambay Cay

Easy access to great diving is one of the special perks of tropical private island ownership, but only a select few properties offer front-door proximity to one of the world’s top reef systems. Located just off the northern coast of Honduras, Lambay Cay is 6.5 acres of Caribbean splendor, surrounded by beautiful blue and turquoise waters, and the incredible reefs of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System.

Easy access to great diving is one of the special perks of tropical private island ownership, but only a select few properties offer front-door proximity to one of the world’s top reef systems. Located just off the northern coast of Honduras, Lambay Cay is 6.5 acres of Caribbean splendor, surrounded by beautiful blue and turquoise waters, and the incredible reefs of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System.

Lambay is part of the small archipelago known as Cayos Cochinos, or Hog Cays – so named for the hogs brought here in the 18th century by British pirate Henry Morgan to provide a food source for his motley band of seafaring scamps. Thirty miles to the north of Lambay Cay is the tourist-popular Roatán, but unlike that island, the Cayos Cochinos archipelago has kept its unspoiled appearance and secluded vibe because it’s only reachable by boat. Access normally comes via the old banana port town of La Ceiba, about 18 nautical miles to the south/southwest of Lambay Cay on the Honduras mainland.

Lambay Cay’s main house features a great room, an open kitchen, running water and a septic tank, and is located right on one of the island’s several white sandy beaches, overlooking a native pier and pristine waters. There are two one-bedroom guest houses, one with a bath and outdoor shower and the other with a small kitchen. The island also has a small harbor and pier, as well as a dedicated swimming beach with its own cabana, surrounded by white sands in a protected bay.

Since 1993, Cayos Cochinos and the immediate area have been designated as a marine biological reserve by the government of Honduras. Lambay Cay is a perfect slice of secluded but easily accessible tropical island paradise, providing a perfect setting for a family retreat.
