Visit Belize’s Tobacco Caye

A tiny island measuring just 5 acres in size and easily traversable on foot in 10 minutes or less, the lovely Tobacco Caye off the coast of southeastern Belize is one of the most beautiful spots in the country.

Why You Have to Visit Tobacco Caye On Your Vacation

The first European settlers in the area used the tiny island for growing tobacco, giving the name to what is today a picture postcard gem of a tropical island that has no roads, cars, or vehicular traffic. Whether you’re interested in recreating your favorite shipwreck fantasy on a deserted island or simply want to lounge in a hammock underneath swaying palm trees, Tobacco Caye is a delight.

Tobacco Caye is especially popular with visitors due to the crystal clear waters, an ideal spot for scuba diving. Just 300 feet offshore is a deep dropoff, perfect for divers who want to explore the rich abundance of marine life in the Belize Barrier Reef.

Where in Belize Is It Located?

Located within the South Water Caye Marine Reserve, a division of the greater Belize Barrier Reef, Tobacco Caye is approximately a 30-minute boat trip offshore from Dangriga in southeastern Belize.

When Is the Best Time to Visit 

With outstanding weather nearly all year round, pretty much any time is a good time to visit Tobacco Caye. Migrating whale sharks come through the area every year from April to approximately June.

Best Way to Get There

There are no regular commercial water taxi routes that connect Tobacco Caye to the mainland but numerous private operators offer service to and from the island. You may be able to get a ride to Tobacco Caye from other islands and atolls in the southern part of the Belize Barrier Reef.

Best Way to Experience Tobacco Caye 

With a few affordable Belize resorts and small hotels on the island, you’ll want to book a few days to truly relax and enjoy the rhythms of life on Tobacco Caye. Be sure to head into the water where scuba diving and snorkeling opportunities abound just a few feet from the beach. There’s a dive shop in case you don’t have your own gear and the food served in the various lodges, bars and restaurants is fresh and delicious. If island life calls to you, you can catch a ride from Tobacco Caye to some of the other popular snorkeling and diving spots on the reef.
