Photographer's Note

Lighthouse Reef atoll, located in the Caribbean 45 miles east of Belize City, is one of just four atolls in the western hemisphere. Long Caye is in the southern quarter, the largest of the five cayes within the atoll. It is remote, yet accessible.


As the dominant landmass within Lighthouse Reef, Long Caye's lagoons and mangroves provide a unique habitat for an abundant array of tropical wildlife. It is surrounded by magnificent walls of coral with a marine ecosystem that extends for miles. Minutes away are world renowned Half Moon Caye bird sanctuary, the Great Blue Hole and some of the world's most pristine coral reefs and dive sites, including the Aquarium, Half Moon Wall and Cathedral. Long Caye offers extraordinary opportunities for scuba diving, snorkeling, photography, sailing, recreational and sport fishing, sea kayaking, bird watching, swimming, relaxing and exploring in the midst of Caribbean magnificence.


We welcome those who have an appreciation of nature and an interest in maintaining this important eco-system for all to enjoy. Sound, lasting environmentally sustainable principals are at the core of the philosophy of Long Caye. Broad Eco-Guidelines have been put in place providing policies and procedures to ensure minimal impact on its diverse natural habitats. Buildings, transportation and activities on the Caye are seen through the lens of preservation and sustainability. The Eco-Guidelines allow for responsible and sustainable human activity on the caye, yet do not impede the continuance of the diverse flora and fauna. They ensure continued community respect for the local and surrounding environment.


The community on Long Caye will have long-term responsibility to help preserve and manage this pristine environment. If you have an interest in connecting with a rare opportunity to create a legacy for generations to come, we invite your inquiry.
