The Silk Cayes

Placencia, Belize

Made up of 2 deserted islands fringed by crystalline waters and covered in snow-white sand, the Silk Cayes are the preeminent spot to live out one’s deserted island fantasy. Located just 20 nautical miles from the bustling beach town of Placencia and nestled beside a barrier reef, it’s a popular spot for locals and savvy tourists who come here to free dive and snorkel while taking in the tropical aquatic life. Bring along some fish from the market and prepare to make friends; sunset island barbecues beneath coconut trees are becoming a nightly tradition.
