Glover's Reef Atoll

One of only THREE ATOLLS off the coast of Belize, Glover's Marine Reserve is renowned for its profusion of marine life and remarkable clarity.

An elliptical shaped reef measuring 20 miles long by 7 miles wide, located almost 40 miles offshore of the Belize mainland, Glover's Reef Atoll is thought to be the richest marine environment in the entire Caribbean Sea. Within Glover's Reef is a shallow lagoon with over 700 patch reefs.  This lagoon is unsurpassed for snorkeling and sea kayaking. Within a mile of the eastern edge of the atoll the reef wall drops precipitously 2600 feet to the sea floor. The interaction between the open waters of the Caribbean Sea and the sheltered lagoon of the atoll results in a diversity and abundance of marine life which is unsurpassed for sea kayaking, snorkeling, and scuba diving. The reefs of Belize have long been known as the richest in the Caribbean and Glover's is the best in Belize!
