What Is Harvest Caye?
Located just five miles off the shore of Placencia in southern Belize, Harvest Caye offers a premier resort-style experience packed into a 75-acre private island getaway. Available exclusively to Norwegian cruise guests, Harvest Caye earned the honor of the best new cruise port in The Caribbean in 2017 from Porthole Magazine.
At just one mile long and 400 feet wide, Harvest Caye is easily walkable for most people, making it possible for you to check out the entire island in just one day. The island also offers easy access to the mainland, giving you the chance to explore even more of the area — the choice is yours!

Developed in partnership with the Belize government, Norwegian took great care to preserve the island's natural beauty. On top of that, Harvest Caye features locally-owned shops, restaurants, artwork, traditional performances, and other amenities as a way to help support the local economy.
