Freestanding Cabanas Along Belizean Atoll

Of the three atolls off Belize's coast, Turneffe Atoll has the most biologically diverse coral reefs, since the mangrove-speckled islands act as nurseries for tropical fish, manatees, and dolphins. Located on an island within Turneffe Atoll, Blackbird Caye Resort overlooks a 2-mile-long private beach nestled among coconut trees and 1,300 acres of jungle. If you walk down the beach’s two whitewashed docks that extend into the Caribbean, you might spot bonefish, barracuda, stingrays, and nurse sharks.

With ocean temperatures hovering around 82 degrees, scuba diving and snorkeling are Turneffe Atoll's main attractions. More than 70 diving and snorkeling sites are within a 15-minute boat ride of Blackbird. Explore shallow reefs on snorkeling trips, which take you among coral, sea fans, and brightly colored fish. Use the resort’s complimentary sea kayaks to navigate mangrove-laden lagoons and spot dolphins. The resort offers three daily dives, two daily snorkeling trips and kayak expeditions, and one weekly diving trip to Belize’s famous Great Blue Hole.

After a day spent exploring the sea, retire to your private beachfront cabana covered with a thatched roof. Standard and superior cabanas come with air conditioning and private porches with hammocks. Each day, the resort’s palapa-style restaurant at the main dock serves three meals of fresh island cuisine. Dinner is a sit-down affair with your choice of meat, chicken, or fish, plus a housemade dessert.

Turneffe Atoll, Belize: World-Class Scuba Diving and Snorkeling

Located about 25 miles off the coast of Belize City, Blackbird Caye Resort is only a short boat ride from the Great Blue Hole, one of Belize's most iconic natural landmarks. Located near the middle of Lighthouse Reef, the Great Blue Hole is a 400-foot-deep limestone sinkhole that forms a nearly perfect circle in a brilliant shade of navy blue. As divers descend into the hole, they see limestone stalactites and stalagmites hanging off the walls.

Half Moon Caye Natural Monument in the southeast corner of Lighthouse Reef is home to some of Belize's most exotic land animals as well as a diverse assortment of underwater creatures. Rare red-footed boobies nest on the cay for about 10 months out of the year, then spend the other 2 months playing shuffleboard in Naples.
