There's a new port stop coming to Belize, and it will be the only one in the country with a cruise pier.

Harvest Caye, which has been developed by Norwegian Cruise Line, is an island-turned-resort that's scheduled to open in November. Last week, the cruise line offered a glimpse of what travelers can expect to find at this southern Belize port of call.

The Norwegian Escape is scheduled to stop at Harvest Caye during weeklong cruises from Miami between May and October 2017. Regent Seven Seas and Oceania also will make stops at the island.

So what's the island like?

First off, you can stroll off the ship -- no need to take a tender -- and onto Harvest Caye, which has six miles of sandy beaches.

Second, you may not need to go very far to enjoy this stop.

Harvest Caye will feature amenities such as:

--beach villas that hold up to 10 people and have air-conditioning, lounges and dining rooms, indoor-outdoor showers, hammocks and concierge service;

--canopy cabanas at a 15,000-square-foot pool with a swim-up bar and more;

--activities including zip lines, free-fall jumps and a ropes course as well as kayaking, paddle boarding and canoeing in the island's lagoon;

--restaurants and bars, including Landshark Bar & Grill, and shopping;

--manatee viewing on tours at the lagoon, where there's also an aviary with birds such as scarlet macaws and toucans; and

--a marina where passengers can set off on other activities and destinations in Belize.
