Gladden Caye is in one of the most exclusive locations in Belize. Located right near the Gladden Spit that is famous for Whale Shark diving. The island is located 24 miles east of Placencia and just behind the reef so the commute to the island takes about 35 minutes in good conditions and a little longer when the seas are rougher.
The island has just completed a badly needed make over that included cleaning years of conch shell accumulations and general junk removal. Plus the island was filled with sand from the lagoon so not only does the island have more height, the eastern side has about 100 feet of high dry ground that overlooks the most spectacular eastern view you can imagine. The island has a very rudimentary fisherman's cabin on it with some basic infrastructure installed. The owner decided to paint it rather than remove it because a new owner could make good use of the house during initial stages of construction.
The lagoon between the two islands is about 6 feet deep with beautiful white sand. This is where the sand for fill was taken. Large boats can easily access this protected lagoon and its perfect docking location.
The diving, snorkeling and fishing just off shore is world class, it simply doesn't get any better.
