Turneffe Flats has long been recognized as one of Belize's premier saltwater fly fishing, SCUBA diving and marine eco-tourism destinations. Located on the incredibly-beautiful Turneffe Atoll, we specialize in superior service for a limited number of guests.
Awaken in your air-conditioned beachfront cabana to a stunning tropical seascape, expansive bonefish flats, and surf breaking over the coral reef. We are ideally located to enjoy Turneffe's 250 square miles of pristine flats, coral reefs and rich marine life.
For more than three decades, Turneffe Flats has been known as one of the world's finest saltwater destinations. Our diverse fishery, with the opportunity to land bonefish, permit and tarpon on any given day, sets Turneffe Flats apart from other destinations. Turneffe's crystal clear, wadeable flats make bonefishing a consistent mainstay of our fishing. Turneffe is also one of a select group of saltwater destinations offering anglers the opportunity to experience the excitement of casting to tailing permit every month of the year. Additionally, Turneffe is home to large, migratory tarpon between April and October with resident tarpon caught throughout the year. Snook, barracuda, snapper, jacks, triggerfish, and several other species, round out an exceptionally-diverse fishery.
