Recommended Gear for Turneffe Lodge, Belize

Nestled on the coral island of Little Caye Bokel, our resort sits at the southern elbow of one of the world’s unspoken wonders, the Turneffe Atoll.

Formed centuries ago, Belize’s Turneffe Atoll was once an oceanic mountainous peak. With time and tectonic shifts in the earth’s crust, the peak sank to the sea floor, leaving only a coral reef around its perimeter. The coral continued to grow upon itself into a string of coral islands, which we know today as the Turneffe Atoll: a tangle of land, lagoons, channels and reef – and the lifeblood of the Caribbean’s world-renowned diving and fishing.

Our resort was built around world-class, all-inclusive fishing, diving and snorkeling experiences. As such, our guests are typically adventure-seekers, recharging in the water by day – and over five-star fare by night. Our remote location in the Caribbean Sea serves to bring guests closer to themselves and the exclusive diving and fishing sites the Turneffe Atoll is renowned for.
