Unique island location

Blue Marlin Beach Resort is located on one of the most beautiful pristine islands in the Caribbean. South Water Caye, a 15-acre sub-divided private island less than one mile in length and 160 yards at its widest point, is rated by Rough Guides as “one of the most beautiful and exclusive islands in Belize”. It is located in the middle of its namesake Marine Reserve which is one of the largest protected marine areas along the 190-mile long Belize Barrier Reef. The Belize Barrier Reef System was first inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1996 in recognition of the site’s incredible biodiversity and cultural significance.
