Where is the island in relation to A.C., the mainland and the reef?

To my knowledge and the location on the map it is out the back side of Ambergris Caye and looks to be about half way between the caye and the mainland.

Correct on that one, you can see it from Cayo Espanto.

Just flew over Blackadore, beach is posted, they have someone living there, and it looks like all the plastic trash[there used to be a considerable amount] around the entire island has been cleaned up.

Well, they will all have to come back from the good ole U.S. of A., and other points abroad to accomplish that.

Inheritance from British Colonialization? or from the Maya?
Belize or the USA, depends on what you are looking for. Half my inlaws (Belizeans) are in the US, chasing (keyword) the American Dream. They live in Inglewood and Oakland. To them, part of the dream. To others, a nightmare.
Growing up poor, watching US cable, makes a lot of folks move up north. A good friend was pulled across the Rio Grande in a tube, couldn't swim to go and make the "big bucks"
On the flip side, how many who have been raised in climate controlled schools and working the 9 to 5 with bill payments equall or above their income wouldn't jump at the chance to live and work on the beach in Belize?
Perspective I guess?
