Welcome to Tobacco Caye Paradise!

Tobacco Caye Paradise Cabins

Tobacco Caye Paradise is a small Belizean-owned vacation property with six private "over the water" beach cabanas. All cabanas face north to the Belize Barrier Reef and have wonderful decks perched over turquoise tropical waters. Each deck has a hammock and an amazing view of the Caribbean Sea. Accommodations are clean, comfortable and charmingly rustic. There are five 1 bedroom/1 bathroom cabanas, and one 2 bedroom/1 bathroom cabana. Each cabana has a private bathroom and rainwater-fed showers.

Our property is completely off-the-grid! While there is no electric or water utilities on the island, we collect our own rainwater and generate our own electricity from solar power (only use a generator when absolutely necessary).

Delicious meals are available in the dining hall, where you can dine with fellow travelers and share the day’s adventures.

We provide 24-hour front desk manager assistance, daily housekeeping (or by request) , and delicious meals. Wi-fi is available on the property for a small daily fee.

We also offer: kayak, snorkel gear and SUP rentals to all our guests and visitors.

About Tobacco Caye

Tobacco Caye is the perfect tropical getaway - a location unlike any other along the Barrier Reef. With a year-round population of only 30 and no televisions, public telephones, the island is the perfect place to relax in a hammock and unplug from your busy life back home.

This palm fringed five-acre islet is part of the South Water Caye Marine Reserve, a 17,878-acre offshore wonderland for divers, snorkelers, and kayakers.

Tobacco Caye is located in the middle of the Belize Barrier Reef at the northern edge of the South Water Caye Marine Reserve. It is approximately thirty minutes offshore from the town of Dangriga in central Belize. Access is by boat, and water taxi service is available from Dangriga and Hopkins. As you approach your destination by boat, this idyllic gem reveals itself from behind the Tobacco Caye Range. Soft, sandy beaches, swaying coconut palms and calm, turquoise waters await you. You can enjoy world class snorkeling right off the beach. The east side of the island has the Belize Barrier Reef as a backdrop, offering you some of the best SCUBA diving in the Caribbean.

Rainforest & Reef Adventure Package

We offer a year-round adventure package for Belize. The Rainforest & Reef Explorer package combines two off-the-grid Belize favorites - Bocawina Rainforest Resort in Mayflower Bocawina National Park and our very own Tobacco Caye Paradise. This package starts and ends in Dangriga and includes accommodations, meals, activities and round-trip transfers.
