Where will you stay?
Tom Owens Island is a beautiful, idyllic remote private island that is part of the Sapodilla group of islands, located in the south of Belize. Our volunteers have been known to have tears in their eyes when they first arrive!
No one has to share accommodation at ReefCI, and there is no single supplement which makes us very popular amongst individual travelers.
Tom Owens island situated on the outer reef, is a true 'castaway' coral caye island – accommodation and facilities are rustic with a few home comforts thrown in!
The island is about 1 acre and has a large living area, great views and lots of hammock space. All of our guests upon arrival tell us that the photos do not do the island justice! It really is a perfect Caribbean paradise.
Accommodation is in private waterfront cabanas, all with amazing views overlooking the stunning Caribbean ocean. The individual cabanas are basic but comfortable and have shared or private bathroom facilities. There are also double en-suite rooms available for couples.
