Travel: Gilligan’s Island in Belize

Sometimes it’s easier than you think to get away from the crowds. While most vacationers stick to the islands in Belize’s Ambergris or Central group, head a little further south and an absolute jewel awaits you. Tiny Tobacco Caye is just 30 minutes by boat from the coastal town of Dangriga, and yet to visit it feels like you’ve landed somewhere completely off the charts.


If you’re seeking luxury, then this isn’t the place for you. But if you want to stay on an island that has only 20 permanent residents and not many more guests, fall asleep to the sound of water lapping up against the stilts that hold up your cabin, and never, ever have to wear your shoes, EVER, then you might be on to something.

Tobacco Caye sits right atop the Belize Barrier Reef so it offers snorkeling directly from the beach. You can also go fishing. Or you can lie in a hammock and read. (Or sit in a chair and read.) Really, that’s about it. I said “Gilligan’s Island,” didn’t I?
