Under the sea

The Belize barrier reef is the second largest reef in the world and is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stretching 190 miles north to south along the Belize coastline, the reef consists of 70 hard coral species, 34 soft coral species, mangrove forests, cayes and atolls; all providing a wide and varied range of habitats for the plethora of species that call this place home.

Unsurprisingly, Belize is a diving paradise and whether you are experienced, or a complete beginner, you will be well looked after. Putting on a snorkel is also a magical experience here and you’ll stand just as good a chance at spotting some of the incredible species.
