Turneffe Flats Belize

Turneffe Flats Lodge Belize

Turneffe Flats is located on the Turneffe Atoll. An atoll is a ring-shaped coral reef that includes a coral rim that encircles a lagoon either partially or completely, and the Turneff Atoll has the distinction of being the biggest and most diverse in the Caribbean.

This tropical location offers an uncrowded beach destination for nature lovers and fishermen, alike.

Fishing Turneffe Flats

Turneffe Flats boasts 250 square miles of expansive flats, coral reef and rich marine habitat. It’s long been recognized as one of Belize’s premier saltwater fly fishing destinations. The diversity of marine life offers the opportunity to catch bonefish, permit, and tarpon. This unique location even offers the chance for a “Flats Grand Slam” if you catch all three on the same day.

Observe manatees in their natural habitat.

Snorkeling and SCUBA Diving

The Turneffe Atoll is a diver’s dream come true. It’s the largest, most diverse coral atoll in the Caribbean, and the Turneffe Flats Lodge specializes in superior service for a limited number of guests including a variety of activity packages.

For instance, snorkeling packages allow the rare opportunity to observe manatees and dolphins in their natural habitat.┬áDiving packages also emphasize personalized service for a limited number of divers, with groups usually limited to 12 or less. Within an hour’s boat ride, divers have access to more than 160 dive sites around the Turneffe Atoll.

Eco Adventures

This exceptional destination offers a full range of water-based activities. Combination packages provide opportunities for fishing, kayaking, SCUBA diving, snorkeling, and a variety of other marine eco-adventures.

There’s nothing like a jungle walk, river canoeing, caving or exploring Belieze’s Mayan ruins. If you have more time, take advantage of an Inland Belize Rainforest package, too. It offers an entirely different experience.

    Sounds gorgeous! But anywhere in Belize is probably close to perfect. Would love to snorkel and dive this reef, though!
