Relaxation and natural beauty define a stay at this idyllic retreat. Pelican Beach Resort is located on the southern end of South Water Caye, a private island just 15 acres in size and one of the few islands in Belize that sits right atop the barrier reef. From Pelican Beach, guests can walk from directly from shore to snorkel among colorful corals and brilliant schools of fish. Belizean-style wooden cottages, named for resident bird species, are spacious, airy and cooled by trade winds and ceiling fans. En suite baths have basin, toilet and tiled showers with hot and cold water. Private shaded verandas are positioned to enjoy the sunrise and sunset, while hammocks and lounge chairs invite relaxing. Hammocks are a hallmark of Pelican Beach and are scattered throughout the premises, too! Meals feature generous portions of local dishes and are served on the outdoor deck where light snacks and fruit juices are always available. The bartender is also standing by to fix your choice of refreshing tropical delights, alongside beer and wine offerings. All Pelican Beach facilities utilize "green technology" in the form of solar-powered lighting, flash heaters for hot showers, and environmentally friendly waste facilities including composting and waste transfer back to the mainland for disposal.
