Big Channel Caye

7.35 acres - Sold

Big Channel Caye is the largest of the Channel Cayes that sit right on top of their own coral reef. Big Channel is located 16 miles northeast of Placencia and 10 miles southeast of Riversdale. The island is well protected by the Belize barrier reef located 6 miles away with Gladden Spit, home of world famous Whale Shark diving, only 13 miles away. The water around Big Channel Caye is a virtual aquarium of coral heads with an incredible array of sea life. The reef that Big Channel Caye sits on is only a few inches below sea level with shallow water extending out on the western side about 50 feet before it drops off to deeper water. Entering the lagoon between Big Channel and Little Channel is best accessed around the southern point of Big Channel where there is enough depth to allow a shallow draft boat through. The water inside the lagoon area is totally flat in almost any weather, but quite deep so it would make a terrific harbor. Long term easy access could be improved by dredging a channel around this point to accommodate deep draft sailboats. Although this island is being sold separately, it could also be combined with Little Channel as a package purchase for a terrific resort property. Unfortunately, it was stormy the day we took the land and water based pictures so we'll update these as soon as possible.
