The Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing (MIDH), through the Project Execution Unit, and in collaboration with the Coastal Zone Management Authority and Institute (CZMAI), advises the public that Goff's Caye is closed for visitation from May to October 2022.

Goff's Caye is currently under reconstruction, and as such, the island is off-limits to visitors. The temporary closure is necessary to facilitate improvements to the island through infrastructural works and other upgrades under the implementation of the Inter-American Development Bank's Climate Vulnerability Reduction Programme with the Government of Belize. Once completed, these upgrades will improve the visitor experience for both local and foreign tourists, and will contribute significantly to the long-term sustainability of the island for present and future generations.

Works include demolition of the existing pier, construction of a new pier, new palapa, new bathroom facilities and other amenities.

The MIDH and CZMAI thank the public in advance for their support, cooperation and patience during this time. The ministry reassures project success and its commitment to the people of Belize.
