Turneffe FlatsFor long time now, Turneffe Flats has been identified as one of the leading saltwater fly fishing, SCUBA diving and marine eco-tourism destination in Belize. They are situated on the unbelievably beautiful Turneffe Atoll. Visitors here get to explore the most biologically diverse atoll in entire Caribbean.

 
In 2013, Turneffe Flats were Green Globe certified for the first time as a result of its sustainable operations. This year, once again, this eco-tourism resort has established its environmental credentials with a distinguished compliance score of 89 percent.

 
If we look at Turneffe Atoll, it’s the home of this amazing eco-tourism resort. Besides, it shelters 260 fish species along with pristine habitat, 77 plant species and 5 spawning aggregation sites. Healthy coral reef, comprising fringing reef and patch corals along with expansive back reef flats, large lagoon systems, sea grass beds, and extensive mangrove forest has made the marine eco-system truly exotic!

 

Turneffe Atoll has important financial and sociological significance to Belize as a major commercial fishery and ecotourism center. The place also provides the Belize City and the mainland coast with necessary protection from hurricanes.
