Lighthouse Reef Atoll

Lighthouse Reef, the most remote of all the atolls in Belize remains wild and unspoiled...

And, with over 20 world-renowned dive and snorkel sites, including the Blue Hole, Half Moon Wall and the Aquarium, Lighthouse Atoll is a must-visit destination. The coral reefs that make Lighthouse one of our most exciting snorkeling destinations harbour a remarkable 200 species of fish in a magical setting of changing reef types, from shallow reefs and ledges to shelves and drop offs. 

This Atoll is part of a Marine Reserve that covers 10,000 acres and 15 square miles of surrounding sea. At the center of the Reserve is Half Moon Caye - 45 acres of coconut palm, sandy beaches, and rare littoral forest which shelters a nesting colony of red-footed boobies. The Blue Hole is just 8 miles north of Half Moon Caye. Formed some 10,000 years ago when jungle covered what is now water, the roof of a massive cave collapsed. Then as sea levels rose to inundate the area, the cave was flooded to create this remarkable undersea phenomonon that is now a unique snorkelinig and diving destination.
