Who We Are

The Sabal Family welcomes you to the Billy Hawk Caye Resort. Operated mainly as a fishing island through its early years, the Sabals have worked to build the island up over the past five years to invite tourism. Billy Hawk Caye is conveniently located right of the coast of the culture capital, Dangriga Town. True to their roots, Alex and his sister Jackie, along with their extended family, spend a good portion of their year on the island, still fishing when not entertaining tourists.


A proud Garifuna family, the Sabals are excited to share their island, its pristine surrounding reefs, their knowledge, and their herritage with you. At Billy Hawk Caye Resort, the aim is to make your vacation dreams come through. Whether it is a quiet island getaway, or an action packed adventure, our dedicated staff is willing to make these dreams become reality.

Located On The Barrier Reef

Billy Hawk Caye is located on Belize's barrier reef, the second largest of its kind in the world.  With its prime location, Billy Hawk Caye offers a number of activities that will allow you to enjoy and appreciate the nature around you.


Included in your visit is also the opportunity to spend time learning to fish the local reefs.  Once you return to the island, if you'd like you can work with Jackie to learn to prepare what you've caught. You may also take our kayaks out, either to explore the surrounding islands or to paddle to other nearby patch reefs.


For the budding scientists, you can also book a tour of nearby Carrie Bow Caye with advanced notice.  Home to the Smithsonian's marine research station, the island managers at Carrie Bow will show you their labs.  If you're lucky, you may even get to meet some of the resident scientists and see their research. If you'd prefer relaxation over activity, there are many hammocks for you to choose from, both in the sun and shade.  With prime placement for tanning, watching the sunrise, laying by the bar, or napping in the sun, pick one and make yourself at home.
