While most visitors to San Pedro and Belize seek the adventure of exploring the pristine underwater seascapes or wild jungle adventures, many visitors seek out the opportunity to indulge in their favorite past time – golf.

   Caye Chapel is home to one of the most unique golf courses in Central America with a PGA rated course that encompasses an entire Caribbean island. Even the best golfer will consider this course challenging. This championship golf course offers meticulously groomed fairways and greens along with plenty of water and sand traps that will challenge the most accomplished golfer.

   When playing this course, you will feel that you are alone on the island. Blue waters of the Caribbean caress the shores offering the ultimate in privacy. An easy 10-minute flight from Belize City, or a thirty-minute water taxi ride from San Pedro, you will arrive at one of the world’s truly special private island resorts.

   For the seasoned golfer, this is the experience you’ve been searching for. This is true paradise - 265 acres of exclusivity.

   The four par 5 holes average distances of 560 yards from the tips, with a long par 72 boasting more than 7,000 yards of extraordinary views of the Caribbean Sea and Barrier Reef. The links are impeccably manicured and hazards abound with a multitude of cat-tailed lined lakes, native birds, unpredictable trade winds, and even crocodiles along the lake banks.

   The Clubhouse stands as a majestic centerpiece of the resort. Its placement between the front and back nine creates a vision of enormous size and splendor. This structure comprises over 25,000 square feet of interior space with an additional 5,000 square feet of exterior verandahs from heights of over sixty feet, offering you a spectacular dining and viewing experience. The building also contains a restaurant, gift shop, locker rooms, conference facility, and general offices.

   All guests staying on the island can indulge in unlimited free daily enjoyment of the golf course. Reservations are required for those guests who want to spend the day on the course or in the pool.

   Belize offers many unique adventures and Caye Chapel presents one of the most unique experiences in the Caribbean.

Caye Chapel offers much more than golf.

   You don’t have to spend your day on the golf course to enjoy Caye Chapel, although you might want to walk the greens just to take-in the incredible vistas of a true Caribbean paradise. The immaculately groomed course and surrounding grounds can be appreciated by anyone, with colors, sunshine and ocean breezes stimulating every sense. You may even catch a glimpse of a crocodile slowly circling in one of the many lagoons.

   Caye Chapel offers the blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, perfect weather, elegant accommodations, superior service and complete resort amenities. It is a rare and unique pleasure to truly experience the surroundings of a private island. The quiet and solitude offers the ultimate in privacy and relaxation, and every detail has been tended to, assuring your complete contentment. Whether you are there just for the day, or staying in one of the lovely “casitas” or exquisite villas, you will feel like you have been somewhere few people have had the privilege to experience.

   A full service spa is available to pamper you in every way. Or, if you choose to just lounge, you can enjoy the secluded beaches or beautifully appointed swimming pool, complete with floating chaise lounges and poolside cocktail service. The peace and quiet will sooth you into a Caribbean slumber.

   There are many acres of the island to explore by foot or golf cart with breathtaking views at every turn. Flora and fauna are abundant and birds flock to the island. If you are lucky you may see one of the Osprey that inhabit the island or see a large Osprey nest, full of complaining fledglings, begging as an adult patiently feeds them. There are also estuaries where flocks of White Ibis graze in shallow waters. While standing at the edge of the marina, you can watch beautiful tropical fish swim by without even getting wet. Of course, the boating, fishing and diving are unparalleled and the resort also has a glass-bottomed boat.

   Should you stay in one of the Beachfront Villas estate homes, you can expect only the highest standards in vacation accommodations. Beautifully situated only a few feet from the gorgeous sandy beach and the championship golf course, –you can view both amazing sunrises and sunsets from your villa. The marina-view casitas are junior suites, and include satellite television, telephone, daily maid service and an in-room mini bar. The Casita guests equally share the same standard of excellence, service and resort amenities at a price many can afford.

   You can enjoy fine dining in their restaurant and the magnificent bar defines elegance in the Caribbean. The chefs will create culinary joys for you at each meal that is unique and tasty!

   A trip to Caye Chapel is a true Caribbean treat and something not to be missed!
