History of Little French Key
then. now. why.
We are often asked what is the 44 in Frenchy’s 44 about...?
Our area was first settled by a Frenchman pirate and was thus called Frenchman Cay, later abbreviated to French Cay. The number 44 is a mystical number and pays tribute to my father and foremost G-d and the Bible, the great originators. It is often that we need to play our part in a cosmic plan laid before us and do our best to make the place better than we found it. With that in mind, we hope that we remain connected and on the right path, so help us G-d.
Located on the Bay Islands of Roatan, Little French Key is a private and secure island providing fun and adventurous aquatic activities for the entire family to enjoy in a safe and carefree setting. Little French Key has evolved over the years to the premier Cruise Excursion destination for Roatan. There have been many changes since settling LFK almost 2 decades ago, all stemming from the desire to share this beautiful creation with others and preserving the beauty that is Roatan.
WHO WE ARE
One of the ideas behind the LFK has been to create an ecologically friendly place that could embrace and encapsulate the culture, history, and flavors of Roatan and share it with visitors to the island.
We get most of our electricity from a wind turbine with a zero carbon footprint. We collect all the rainwater from the roofs for daily usage and irrigation; our sewage system is a Piranha, bio-digested closed loop system with Zero discharge to the sea or the Island. Recycling is of utmost priority and performed whenever possible. To keep the balance of the Ecosystem around us, our Island resort maintains a minimal footprint with no sewage system. LFK is also involved with numerous animal rehabilitation programs that rescue various indigenous and exotic animals for the benefit of those animals and the Roatan community. Please inquire for more details.
Daily Cruise Shore Excursions are available every day except Monday. However, we invite everyone to come and join us and partake of the beauty of LFK for an extended stay. The house has been converted into an All Inclusive Resort Experience (only on your private Island), or on a per room reservation Bed & Breakfast. Either option provides access to the beauty, fun, and memories of LFK. This magnificent home is the perfect place to relax, indulge, and rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul. Don't take our word for it. Ask El Chevo...
In creating this attraction, our mission has been to build around the natural charm of the private island, while maintaining, protecting and preserving the environment and the surrounding reef; something we are proud to have accomplished. The Perfect Setting for your Celebration and enjoyment.
