Rent your own paradise island: FRENCH LOUIE CAYE, a private island getaway in the Caribbean. Sheltered behind the world famous Belize Barrier Reef, this private 2 acre island is available for your exclusive use. Located in southern Belize, 8 miles east of Placencia Village, the island offers a beautiful coral sand beach, is surrounded by some of the finest coral reef in the area, and also has a fascinating mangrove ecology. The rental includes a caretaker who will cater to your needs: he will catch fresh seafood for dinner, cook your meals, take you on a kayak tour and snorkel with you around the island (he is a great teacher as well!). This is an unforgettable experience - the perfect honeymoon, anniversary, or birthday celebration.

We just got back from Belize. Wish we would have discovered French Louie Caye sooner. It is indeed a tropical paradise. We only visited this beautiful island briefly on our kway to another island and fell in love with it. My heart was left on King Louie's Caye as we had to leave it go to our other scheduled destinations....
