Luxury holidays in Ambergris Cay

This three-mile-long, one-mile-wide private island takes perceptions of serenity to a new extreme, with sequestered sand bars and conch shell-covered shores, it’s entirely possible to wander alone along the bottle blonde beaches without seeing a soul; except maybe the resident iguanas. Whether you’re exploring untouched expanses, diving among the cerulean coral reefs or sipping a post-snooze cocktail on the palm-sprinkled sands, it’s tough for Ambergris Cay to disappoint.

When to go

Visit all-year-round for pleasant temperatures; but if you’re hoping to experience Ambergris Cay’s isolation at its best, then avoid peak travel months (which typically run from December to January and March to April.)

Getting there

  • Planes

    Go all out on exclusivity and fly directly into Ambergris Cay’s private airport; or those on commercial flights can land at Providenciales International Airport and meet an island rep who’ll take you to the six-seat prop plane for a 20-minute flight to the island.
  • Automobiles

    This island is unspoiled by cars; but you can utilise the readily available private golf carts to zip around.
