Stretching more than 185 miles along the coastline and covering more than 370 square miles, the Belize Barrier Reef is the second largest coral system in the world after the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.
Off the coast of Belize lies the Caribbean Sea which offers some of the best scuba diving with access to 60 species of stony corals, 200 species of colorful fishes and more invertebrates than anyone can count. Most of the Belize marine ecosystem is protected as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, so the scuba diving and snorkeling remains unspoiled.
Calm waters make exploration easy for even novice snorkelers; and experienced scuba divers have plenty of options. Dive operators are continually adding new sites to their repertoires because the Belize reef is such an irresistible frontier. Every diver operation in the country has dozens of favorite destinations.
The best world re-known diving destination.
