Turneffe Flats

Belize renowned all year round fishing & diving resort specializing in fly fishing

Sunrise, Turneffe FlatsTurneffe Flats Belize is a charming all inclusive resort located on one of the beautiful private island at Turneffe Atoll. The resort has long been recognized as one of Belize’s premier saltwater fly fishing, scuba diving and marine ecotourism destinations.

Awaken in your air-conditioned beachfront cabana to an incredible tropical seascape of white sand beach, expansive bonefish flats and lush mangroves. You will see the surf breaking over the reef for miles in either direction over expansive flats covering over 250 square miles of coral reef and remarkably rich marine habitat.

The diversity of the saltwater flats fishing sets this area apart from other destinations and the opportunity to catch bonefish, permit and tarpon on a given day makes Turneffe Flats one of the rare spots to pursue a “Flats Grand Slam,” the landing all three species in a single day.

Permit Fishing, Turneffe FlatsBone fishing has been the mainstay of fishing at the resort for decades with Turneffe Atoll’s miles of crystal clear, wadeable flats. While wading Turneffe’s extensive turtle grass flats, you will sight-fish to large schools of bonefish as well as smaller groups and singles. Bone fishing remains consistently good throughout the year.

Permit Fishing: Increasing numbers of saltwater anglers have developed a serious interest in permit fishing. Turneffe Flats is one of a select group of saltwater destinations where you can regularly experience the excitement of flats fishing for tailing permit. Good permit fishing is available throughout the year.


Turneffe Tarpon FishingTarpon Fishing:
Because tarpon are migratory, they are, by nature, seasonal. Although some tarpon are around throughout the year, the prime season generally begins in mid-to-late April and continues to mid-October with June, July and August generally being the best months. Most of the migratory tarpon are in the 70-90 pound range, but a few 150 to 200 pound monsters are caught each year.

The resort is ideally located to access Lighthouse Reef Atoll and the famous Blue Hole. Weather permitting the weekly dive package includes a trip to Lighthouse Reef to dive the great Blue Hole, Half Moon Wall and Long Caye.
