Aerial view of Long Caye
Long Caye is one of the most remote and pristine Cayes in Belize. It is located in the Lighthouse Reef Atoll, about 45 miles from Belize City on the Mainland - about 1 to 1 1/2 hours by boat, or a 35 minute flight by helicopter.
Long Caye borders the southwestern side of Lighthouse Reef. Atoll. It is 2 1/4 miles in length, 3/4 miles at its widest point and approximately 650 acres. As the dominant landmass within Lighthouse Reef, Long Caye's protected lagoons and mangroves provide habitat for an abundance of tropical wildlife, such as breeding fish, rare birds, sea turtles and iguanas, to name a few.
