Other Islands for Sale

We put some real thought into purchasing these 2 islands together. They were unnamed so we dubbed them Barefoot and Barenay Cay.These islands were just too far out for our plans. They were also smaller at 2 and 7 acres.The smaller of the two had some very nice high ground and a lot of birds.The water around these islands is very deep and beautiful Lots of big fish.The larger of the two islands was real swampy. This was early in the morning at high tide.
Harvest Caye is a 90 acre island with lots of palms and plenty of high ground.KT and Billy trying to catch up while I walked the islandKT walking the Harvest Caye beachSome huge lizards live on this islandHarvest has a couple large lagoons in the center that we thought would make terrific harbors if they were dredged out.
The water around Harvest has a green tint to it that I did not care for.One of Harvests beaches from the waterA hurricane hit the area several years ago and there are still some remnants showing.Harvest Caye BeachInterior of Harvest Caye
