Billy Hawk Caye is a short boat ride off the coast of Dangriga, Belize. Before inhabitants, there was a family of Billy Hawks nesting on the island which inspired the name “Billy Hawk”. The birds came of age and flew away never to return possibly because of human intervention; however, the southern point of the island has been preserved should the hawks decide to come home.
Billy Hawk Caye has been family owned and operated since 1972. A paradise of approximate 1.2 acres, the island was a stop over for fishermen needing a place to rest and sort their catch. As the population of tourists grew in Belize, the interest of guests slumbering in tents became a demand. We now accommodate visitors from around the globe. For the adventurous, we provide tents. For the bed sleeper, we provide fifteen rooms with comfortable beds. Upon your arrival, your first impression of the island is stepping into a very relaxed environment.
The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
