35 Acre Island in Hick’s Caye
ReMax VIP is very excited to announce the sale of this 35 acre island in Hick’s Caye near the Belize Barrier Reef. This is a cant-miss opportunity for someone looking to purchase their very own Island Paradise.
Centrally located, just north off the coast of Belize City, this Caye is located in the heart of the Hick’s Caye Archipelago. Hick’s Caye is a large chain of islands known for its abundant sea life, stunning natural beauty, and fantastic snorkeling and diving. This breathtaking island is also located just west of the Belize Barrier Reef and 2 of its 3 beautiful coral atolls.
The biggest advantage of Hick’s Caye is its location. Located just 20 minutes directly from the coast, and about 30 minutes from Belize City, its proximity to the coast helps to greatly reduce the cost of materials and transportation.
Certain areas of this land will need to be filled if you decide to build, and luckily, there is an abundance of amazing white coral sand nearby as well as just offshore.
The natural canal running through the middle of the island is a great passage to quickly and easily get from one side of the island to the other. This natural canal is also a perfect place for mooring boats or other watercraft where they’ll be protected from the elements.
Being so close to the Belize Barrier reef, the waters in this area are absolutely teeming with marine life, including colorful coral formations, tropical fish, rays, 4 different species of dolphins, and even the occasional aggregation of manatees.
This Caye is located just 9 miles offshore, northeast from Belize City. It is also about 15 miles to the Turneffe Atoll, a large archipelago surrounded by a beautiful ring of vibrant coral, and one of the three atolls connected to the Belize Barrier Reef.
Just a bit further east of Turneffe is the Lighthouse Reef, one of the most developed and healthiest reefs in the world. Lighthouse reef is home to “The Aquarium” one of the top SCUBA spots in the world, and home to an incredible variety of marine animals that can be found.
Also located in the Lighthouse reef is the Great Blue Hole, a natural wonder of the world. The Great Blue Hole is an underwater sinkhole almost 1,000 feet across and over 400 feet deep, which can even be seen from space. The Great Blue Hole was originally made famous by Jacques Cousteau, who declared it one of the top five SCUBA diving sites in the world, the Great Blue Hole is still known as one of the top diving destinations in the world.
7 Miles north you will find Caye Chapel, a small island home to the Four Seasons Hotel as well as the beautiful “White Shark” 18 hole golf course.
Just north of Caye Chapel you will find the larger Caye Caulker. Caye Caulker is completely devoid of cars; with golf carts, bicycles, and walking being the main modes of transportation on the island.
Further north past Caye Caulker you will then find San Pedro; located in Ambergris Caye, San Pedro is the largest tourist destination in Belize. San Pedro is full of resorts and restaurants, including a brand new MargaritaVille, just opened in 2023. Other than walking, golf carts are the main mode of transportation on this island as well. San Pedro is commonly referred to as one of the best places to retire to in the Caribbean.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity of a lifetime to secure your very own private Caye in one of the most sought after areas of the world, for less than the price of a North American Condo!
