Unfortunately, a lot of hotels and resorts in Belize falsely claim to be located right on the beach or to have an unobstructed view of the Caribbean. And while yes, it is true that it is possible to find a hotel located right on the beach, nothing can compare to enjoying your own private island.
Yok Ha Island Resort is located approximately eight miles offshore of Dangriga in southeastern Belize. This lush three-acre island has a full 360-degree view of the Caribbean, giving guests the true beachfront experience. Smaller, uninhabited islands are close enough that guests can reach them with the use of Yok Ha’s complimentary kayaks. And the top marine preserves and destinations for fishing, scuba diving, and fishing on the Belize Barrier Reef are just a short distance away.
At Yok Ha Island Resort, guests can enjoy the tranquil beauty of an offshore island. With just five intimately appointed cabanas, you’ll never have to deal with crowds, and the onsite gourmet restaurant serves up three delicious meals a day that can be enjoyed right on the beach. Yok Ha also offers a wide variety of marine tours and a PADI-certified dive center to ensure that you enjoy a fabulous vacation in Belize. And few experiences can compare to watching the sun rise over the sapphire waters of the Caribbean.
Best of all, Yok Ha Island Resort is only a short boat ride from the mainland, including top destinations like boat safaris along the Monkey River, hiking through the Cockscomb Basin Nature Reserve (home to some of Belize’s only remaining jaguars), and enormous Mayan cities like Cahal Pech and Xunantunich. The town of Dangriga itself is a popular destination. Dubbed the cultural capital of Belize for its rich contributions to music and painting, Dangriga is home to the unique Afro-Caribbean Garifuna culture that was honored in 2001 by the United Nations as a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
Honeymooners love Yok Ha as its quiet beauty and lovely cabanas offer plenty of intimacy, including king-sized beds, private verandas, hammocks, and a private bathroom with hot water. Yok Ha Island resort is also popular with families and group vacations as guests can freely roam the tiny island or shop for souvenirs at the gift shop. And adventure travelers love staying at Yok Ha because of the proximity of both the mainland and the reef.
If you want a true beachfront experience in an unbelievably gorgeous island setting, look no further than the Yok Ha resort.
