Drop Anchor at a Balmy Island This Winter
From nearby to far-flung and exotic, we've got seven islands to cure your winter wanderlust.

UNPLUG AT TOBACCO CAYE, BELIZE
With a year-round population of only 30, this palm-fringed, five-acre islet is part of the Southwater Caye Marine Reserve, a 117,878-acre offshore wonderland for divers, snorkelers, and kayakers. The draw here is the Belize Barrier Reef, a Unesco World Heritage site just a few strokes off the island with a thriving turtle population and more than 500 fish species. Sign up with Tobacco Caye Diving for five days of boat excursions to sites like Shark Cave, the Blue Hole, and Glover’s Reef Atoll, with accommodations in seaside, solar-powered rooms (from $1,000, all-inclusive). Kayakers can join Island Expeditions’ six-night, lodge-to-lodge Paradise Islands kayak and SUP journey, which winds through the South Water Caye Marine Reserve ($1,779). On Tobacco Caye, you’ll stay at Paradise Lodge, a collection of over-water bungalows.
