Located on the North end of Caye Caulker, Belize and only a 2-minute boat ride away, you’ll find Koko King, a white sandy beach, pool and restaurant/bar. There is something so rewarding about taking time to slow things down. As much as I enjoy exploring new destinations, finding the best places to eat and meeting new people, sometimes it just feels right to do nothing and relax.
How I spent the last day of 2017.
The small boat leaves Caye Caulker every 30 minutes after 11 am and the ride is free if you spend $10 Belize ($5 US) at the restaurant. We settled on the floating bed for the day. A perfect choice to unwind on the last day of the year.
There are tubes you can borrow to float in the ocean, a giant raft to lounge in with your friends, a big blow up floaty that kids were jumping off of and swings on the dock. You can also rent a standup paddleboard or pay to use the pool.
We spent a few hours here mostly taking naps and the occasional dip in the ocean. Get here early to avoid the crowd. It does get busier throughout the day.
When you’re ready to go back to the other side of the island, just wait by the same dock you arrived at for the next boat ride.
