Located on the North end of Caye Caulker in Belize, you’ll find Koko King, a white sandy beach, hotel, restaurant, and pool bar. If you’re searching for things to do on your trip to Caye Caulker, a trip to this white sandy beach is a must!
Use this guide to help you plan your trip to Koko King (aka Northside Beach Club.)
How to get from Caye Caulker to Koko King
To get from Caye Caulker to Koko King, you’ll take a two-minute water taxi at the end of Calle de Sol. The boat leaves Caye Caulker every 30 minutes from 6:45 am to midnight, and the ride is free if you spend $10 Belize ($5 US) at the restaurant.
Arrive early to avoid the crowd.
What to do in Koko King Beach
When you arrive at Koko King, you’ll see swings on the dock and a white sandy beach. There are floating daybeds where you can book for the day. During the day, you can relax at the beach, and at night Koko King Beach turns into a dance party. Once a month there is a full moon party.
There are tubes you can borrow to float in the ocean, a giant raft to lounge in with your friends, and a big blow-up floaty that’s perfect to entertain the kids. You can also rent a standup paddleboard or pay to use the pool.
Where to stay in Koko King
Stay in a remote paradise at the We’Yu Boutique Hotel on Northside Beach (Koko King Beach.) While anyone can take a water taxi to Koko King beach, hotel guests are welcome to use the pool and all the facilities. A complimentary cocktail and continental breakfast are included with your stay.

Snorkel with sharks
Hol Chan Marine Reserve is one of the top snorkeling destinations in Caye Caulker Belize, and once you take a dip in the water, you’ll understand why. Home to turtles, manatees, nurse sharks and vibrant coral the water is warm and crystal clear. When visiting Belize, no trip is complete without a visit to the Belize Barrier reef – the largest barrier reef in the northern hemisphere.
Belize City to Caye Caulker
From the airport in Belize City, a cab will cost you $25 US to the water taxi. From there, I recommend purchasing a round-trip ticket to Caye Caulker for a better deal. One way tickets will cost you $18 US and the boats leave several times a day.
