Welcome to Virginia Caye

Small, private and wild island, 10-20 miles away from the nearest mainland towns Hopkins and Dangriga, Stann Creek, Belize, Central America.

Be free!

Feel like Robinson Crusoe and make your life-time experience with mother nature untouched by any civilisation.

Enjoy some days in paradise with no luxery, no TV, no shops - but with fantastic colours of the caribbean sea, lots of sun(sets), seawater, fishes, snorkeling, pelicans and the chance of seeing dolphins next to the dock and a pet-pig which wants to share its island with you.

The island is powered by solarenergy (from SESB) and the water we use is collected rainwater. You can explore the whole island and find your private favourite spot to relax: on the sundeck, snokeling in the caibbean sea, at the charming southend of the island or at the tiny sandy beach at the northcoast. You have to know that there are no shops, restaurants, theatres, cars, cinemas, casinos or other things from "civilisation". Only nature, you and what you brought to survive for the period of your stay :-)

The Cozy Cabin

Holiday accomodation for a couple with cooking facility, table and queen sized bed.

Cozy Cabin

Cozy Cabin is a rustic, wooden hut, built on poles over the shore, with seaview out of all windows and doors.
We are collecting our water in the rainey season, therefore we ask everybody to be very frugal with recources over the dry time of year. 

Eastern Beach

The beach hut is situated at the southern part of the island where there are no mangroves but coral parts and sand on the ground. Eastern beach is frequently hit by seaweed.


The little cooking facility is equipped with a 2 burner gas stove, a pan, two pots and dishes. You find there also basics like, rain harvested cooking water, pepper, salt, spices, oil, vinegar.


It has a queen sized bed, mosquito net, some coat hangers and hooks and you are welcome to browse a small collection of sailor books. 


The spartan, simple saltwater toilet and fresh water shower are in another small hut just 20 steps next to the cabin.

Seawater Toilet

You will find at site basics like toilet paper, soap and dishwashing utilities.

Wooden Footbridge

Over a 50m wooden walkway, the Palapa was reachable. It is located opposite side of the Cozy Cabin. From here you can observe rays, baracudas, starfishes and other colourful wildlife. 


You will share the island with your hosts Stephan and Verena who are living on a sailboat, docked at the Dock or anchored in the bay backside of the island, and with potential tenants of the mainhouse.


The palapa was a landmark for maritime navigation and meeting point. Located beween Hopkins on the mainland and the fishing grounds behind the reef, sometimes locals and fishermen met here, staying over night or just hanging out. Unfortunately early morning of 4th of August, Hurricane Earl pulled our beloved palapa in the sea.


To get from Belize City Airport to Virginia Caye you can take a small paddle hopper plane with "Tropic Air"(200 BZD PP, OW to Dangriga) or you can take the "Chicken Bus" (12 - 18 BZD PP, OW to Dangriga/ Hopkins) which is a recommendable experience, if you want to get to know the country a little bit better.

Sailboat Transfer

We can arrange a sailboat taxi with Captain Bryan on Brujula. Therefore you should arrive a day before in Hopkins and do the shopping you need to survive on our remote caye. We also can call a local fisherman with a motorboat who drives you to Dangriga. The sailboat trip is 85 BZD per person one way, the motorboat 150 BZD from Hopkins, 200 BZD from Dangriga per ride.

Mr. Piggy

He came to the island when he was 3 days old and loves to have your company and the remains of your dishes..
