Belize Real Estate at Long Caye at Lighthouse Reef
Long Caye is a Caribbean island approximately 650 acres, 2 1/4 miles long, about 45 miles off the coast of Belize, Central America. Approximately eight miles from the world famous Belize Blue Hole, the island is situated within the Lighthouse Reef Atoll, just east of the Belize Barrier Reef, the second largest reef in the world. The Belize Barrier Reef contains some of the most diverse coral reef ecosystems and marine life. The island itself is populated with many species of flora and fauna, including some rare and endangered species.
Since the island is a unique environment with many special ecological features Eco-Guidelines are being followed for sustainable development of the island.
The Belize City International Airport is about two hours from Miami, Florida, Houston, Texas and New Orleans, Louisiana.

Diving and Fishing Paradise
The Lighthouse Reef Atoll is the farthest atoll from mainland Belize, having six cayes and more than 40 incredible dive sites. To the north of Long Caye there is a great diversity of corals, all in extremely clear water. The visibility off Long Caye and throughout Lighthouse Reef is spectacular and just west of the island there are outstanding wall site dives. Silver Caves, for instance, is one of the best with its black coral, orange sponges and marine life. There are also several shipwrecks throughout the Atoll, with many believed to have lost pirate treasures.
Long Caye borders the southwest side of the atoll and is the largest Caye in the Lighthouse Reef Atoll. The cayes inside the Lighthouse Reef Atoll are land masses where coral buildup is above or below sea level and the plant life has taken root. The Lighthouse Reef Atoll is one of only four atolls in this Hemisphere and is 27 miles long from north to south and eight miles wide from east to west.
