4.784 acre private island in the vicinity of Secret Beach, Ambergris Caye, Belize, and near Deer Caye.

Emerald Caye is located on the leeward side of Deer Caye, and just 5.5 miles north of Leonardo DiCaprio’s private island, Blackadore Caye.  Emerald Caye is 13 miles NW of San Pedro Town, 9 miles NW of Secret Beach, and 34 miles east of Corozal (BZ) and Chetumal, MX, as the crow flies.

Emerald Caye is the perfect size and ideal location for a private island estate, or a small all-inclusive boutique resort, or corporate retreat.  At just under 5 acres, there’s plenty of room for a large Bali-style family compound with lots of detached living areas and bedrooms for a combination of indoor/outdoor living.  You could easily create an exclusive AirBnB island estate for group bookings, family reunions, weddings, and corporate retreats.  There are so many ways the island can be built out and developed, and it’s build-ready to bring your dreams to reality! 

Features of Emerald Caye:

  • Sargassum-free shoreline all year round (!)

  • Surrounded by crystal-clear turquoise waters, and world-class saltwater flats fly-fishing!.

  • 785’ of west coast beachfront with unobstructed sunset views as far as the eye can see.

  • 2,437’ of total beachfront.

  • Sheltered and safe protected location on the west side of Deer Caye and Ambergris Caye.

The island has been cleaned and cleared of low-lying vegetation with all mature trees left remaining.  The island been filled by hand-dredging sand from the surrounding waters to raise the elevation and provide suitable drainage.  It’s also been cleaned and cleared of low-lying vegetation with all the mature trees left remaining.  The hand-dredging has created some private secluded sandy beach coves on the island, as well.

As a preventative measure to protect the island and prevent erosion, the entire north shore of the island (640’) is protected by a newly constructed 3’ wide seawall of coral limestone bedrock.  There’s an additional 40’ length rock jetty extension off the NE corner of the island, as well as 130’ seawall dock extension off the NW corner of the island.   The stone seawall dock extension is 4’ width and topped with concrete/cement to provide a stable walking surface for people to walk the length of it and to safely enter/exit from boats.  

We can introduce you to local architects and builders who are accustomed to designing and building for off-grid locations, and there are ample solutions for solar power (w/Tesla PowerWall), engineered ATU septic systems, as well as RO desalination plants that can be scaled for a private island estate, or a full-fledged boutique resort.  

Offered at $2.2 Million USD.
