Welcome to Glover's Reef Atoll

Glover's Reef Atoll

A World Heritage Site - and just 28 miles (about 45km) from mainland Belize - Glover's Reef Atoll is one of only four atolls (ring-shaped reefs made of coral) in the western hemisphere, and a truly mesmerising place to visit. The partially-submerged coral island, which is also a marine reserve, is 20 miles (about 32km) long, and is home to the richest variety of sea life in the Caribbean. The atoll is ringed with white sand beaches, dotted with coconut trees, and its interior lagoon boasts over 800 coral patches, with pinnacles rising above the water's surface. Active types can spend all day diving, swimming, snorkelling and fishing in the turquoise-blue water; while the atoll is also the perfect place to just lie on the sand, and do nothing at all. One thing is for sure: with its pristine setting, and relative obscurity, Glover's Reef is an undiscovered gem, and a honeymoon destination to put all others to shame.
