Turneffe Island is actually an archipelago, composed of small coastal islands near Belize’s famous Belize Barrier Reef. These islands are less crowded than Caye Caulker and Ambergris Caye, and they have their own reef that surrounds the islands. Staying here, you’ll be a short distance from Lighthouse Reef. The Turneffe Islands also provide a home for mangrove forests, creating a habitat for rare birds, fish, and other animals. If you’re interested in bird watching, make sure to visit the nearby red-footed booby sanctuary. The huge diversity of marine wildlife in this area makes it the perfect location for snorkeling, diving, or fishing.
Every accommodation at Turneffe Island Resort has a screened patio, furnished with teak chairs and coffee tables. All of the rooms come decorated with local art. Beds here have comfortable, name-brand mattresses. You’ll also get a nightly turndown service, and in the morning you can partake in the coffee and tea service.
Private bathrooms come with upscale amenities and hairdryers. Guests can shower indoors, or try a more adventurous bathing experience in the outdoor shower – great for keeping sand out of the house.
For a more secluded vacation, consider booking one of the private villas. These accommodations are larger and more luxuriously outfitted – each comes with a wraparound porch and a sweeping view of the Caribbean.
