Caye Chapel from the air

Caye Chapel is a small, privately owned island in Belize, 16 miles (26 km) north-northeast of Belize City and 3 miles (4.8 km) south of Caye Caulker. It was once owned by Isaiah Emmanuel Morter, Belize's first coloured millionaire.[1]

In comparison to other typically rural cayes and islands in the vicinity, it features an airstrip, 18 hole golf course, 25,000-square-foot (2,300 m2) clubhouse and conference facilities.[citation needed] The golf course was designed by Patrick Horvat from Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.[citation needed] His company, Tee Time International Inc along with the island's owner built the course over two winters, nine holes each time.[citation needed]

It is possible to snorkel and fish around the island.
