As part of the Belize Barrier Reef, the Atoll consists of creeks, lagoons, mangrove islands and cayes. It is home to over 500 species of fish, 65 different species of stony corals as well as birds, turtles, manatees and dolphins.
Stay just minutes away from some of the world’s best dive sites. Enjoy luxurious living while on vacation at one of Belize Dive Haven’s 96 air conditioned residences with penthouse suites available.
With the long stretch of barrier reef in one location, explore a new dive site everyday and forget the outside world as you swim among the 600 species of fish and aquatic life.
Once you arrive in Belize, our staff will be there to welcome you and take you on a boat ride to our secluded resort in the Turneffe Atoll. It’s the perfect getaway, which was once used as a hideout for pirates.
Turneffe Atoll’s chain of islands are partially enclosed by two lagoons, the North and South Lagoon, which are dominated by seagrass beds.
The atoll’s more than 200 mangrove islands stretch over thirty miles and they’re filled with pristine fringing reef, complex channels, spits and lagoons, which serve as a spot for world class diving, snorkeling and fishing.
As you near the islands, the water changes color from the deepest blue, to azure and to the palest green where clear waters lap the white coral sand beaches dotted with inviting palm trees.
You’ll be relaxing in a spot about 51 km of the coast of Belize City in an area teeming with marine life, such as colorful sponges, countless species of coral, tunicates, anemones, starfish, turtles, spectacular fish and dolphins.
When you step off onto the 500-foot dock, it will be hard to pull your eyes from the gorgeously, clear water and the adjacent coral flats.
