Reef's End has a nice cabin on the water, new.
They also have a two story motel..very basic. Beds, bath. One room has 3 beds, that was room 4, several years ago.
Oceans Edge, basic basic. Has changed managers and it not as it was the past 3 times we stayed. Same owners. Nice high above the water deck, and it's supposed to be only for Ocean's Edge.
Gaviota, smalllll cabins and if I recollect a common building as well. Basic.
Tobacco Caye Lodge, maybe 6 rooms, ground floor.
Faces the reef. tiny motel appearance. Basic
Lanas, newly remodeled, haven't been inside.
Paradise (something) a cabin on the water, north end of the caye and I think there is also a common house for rooms. Basic
My choice this year is Reefs End. Lovely, over the water, dining. Newly build about 3 years ago. (maybe 4)
Snorkel from shore, wear water shoes. The shore is lined with conch shells, purposly.
All of the lodgings have dining areas and you eat at a specified time. All meals are served family style. Kinda nice, you get to meet people from all over the world.
Oh, the reef is within stone throwing distance.
Just don't forget your water shoes. The water is sooooo shallow around the caye until you get out several feet from shore, then you can float, on the west side. The east side is shallow all the way to the reef.
Some people don't mind if you walk to the reef, others will stop you.
Ask your captain to point out Marie Sharps caye.
Capt. Buck and Capt. Frank are the main guys that pick you up and bring you to your lodging.
They go to town to get supplies and as a general rule, you ride to the caye with the needs for the day.
No stores. Bring your own snacks.
There are 3 bar that I am aware of, one at Reef's End, one owned by Tobacco Caye Lodge and the other is at Ocean's Edge.
It's a quaint island and I believe most everyone is related. Nice people all over the caye.
Enjoy your time, we do
