There are only three atolls in the Caribbean sea and one of them is the Turneffe atoll. Turneffe is the largest and most biologically diverse coral atoll in the Western Hemisphere and is approximately 30 miles long and 10 miles wide.
There are dozens of islands, some larger than 5,000 acres and mangrove forests cover most of the low-lying areas. The atolls are rich in sea-life – much of the area being protected as a marine reserve – so the diving and fishing opportunities are world-class. Find out more here
The area is renowned for Bone fish,Permit, Great Baracuda, Snapper and Tarpon
We stayed at the beautiful Turneffe Island lodge resort which is a private island and has been enjoyed by guests since the 1960’s.
