Winner of TripAdvisor's Traveler's Choice Award for 2014, Turneffe Island Resort is the place to stay for a private, perfect Caribbean reef experience in Belize. All 20 rooms and cabanas feature private patios or balconies with views of the sea.
 

Dive at the the famed Blue Hole, snorkel in the warm breakwaters, look for birds in the Red Footed Booby Sanctuary, explore the island by kayak, or relax in a hammock on the sugary sand.

Book a day trip back to the mainland for zip lining or cave tubing. Or relax with a massage.

Whether you select a Hemingway-esque private cabana with a screened wraparound porch, or a beautifully appointed guestroom in the main lodge, you'll be immersed in warm, friendly service, fresh local foods - the best Belize has to offer.

Or, for an all inclusive Belize vacation that combines Turneffe Island Resort with a jungle experience, see our Belize Vacation Packages.

Diving (Included with Dive Package)

Turneffe Island Resort offers each guest 15 dives per week. Each of the 15 dive sites in the area offers a different view of Belize's pristine ocean. No two dives are ever the same.

The PADI certified dive masters will guide you as you go through corals along the atoll's steep drop-off. Each dive lasts roughly 45 minutes after which you return to the island for lunch or a snack or simply to rest before for the next dive.

Turneffe Island Resort is a PADI dive resort, so if you are not yet a certified diver, you will still be able to enjoy the aquatic wonderland. There is an instructor available who can certify non-divers upon request.

Snorkeling (Included)

The reef around the resort provides a huge range of beautiful places where surface snorkeling and dives can be made. A short boat ride takes you through the shallow turquoise waters of the reef for the darker blues of the Caribbean.

Kayaking & Hobie Cats (Included)

Turneffe Island Resort can provide single or double kayaks that can be paddled around the reef, as well as Hobie Cats for your personal use. The resort will ensure that you have adequate instruction and a guide if required.

Kayaks are perfect for exploring the stunning reef systems of Glover's Atoll. Paddle between the small islands that make up the eastern wall of the atoll.

Guests interested in sport fishing will not be disappointed. The bone fishing at Turneffe Island Resort is superb, and it is common to pull in up to a dozen bone fish per session.

Permit, jack, wahoo, barracuda, bonefish, tarpon, kingfish, trigger fish, grouper, rock fish and bonito also provide great action for the sea fisherman.
