Hatchet Caye, a Belize private island resort just east of Placencia, offers some of Belize’s best guided adventure tours just minutes away from the resort; but there is also lots to do right on the island. Whether you’re looking to tour the island, relax by the pool or get a massage, we got you covered – take time to go outside and enjoy life! Check out some of the many private island activities you can enjoy while staying with us.
Take a dip in our freshwater pool, or lounge on the hardwood deck with a cool drink from the bar as you soak up some sun while enjoying the views. Sports lovers can enjoy a friendly game of island volleyball or football with friends or staff members.
For those looking to explore the waters around the island we offer complimentary non-motorized water toys for use. Kayaks - both recreational and fishing, pedal boats, paddle boards and hobie cats are all available upon request. Ask about the hobie cat lessons or a guided kayak tour to Gladden Spit and Silk Cayes Marine Reserve with a picnic lunch on a deserted island.
Snorkelers can enjoy snorkeling right outside their cabana decks or on a guided tour to the reefs. For an added treat, a night snorkeling off the pier is a unique and refreshing experience as the lights on the end of the pier attracts rays, squid, octopus and other fish.
After a day of adventure and exploring you can unwind with a massage, all-natural scrubs or facials in the privacy of your cabana or over the water on our south-end pier or for a massage with a view – the crow’s nest.
There is always something to do on the island at Hatchet Caye, even if it’s doing nothing at all - after all… “a vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it.”
