SUP Squatching with Windpower!
One of the great things about having an island full of sport toys for 10 different sports is no matter what the weather, there’s always something to do. However, if it’s very windy for a long time, the limited options CAN get a bit old. You know the drill, you are stuck on the best island in Belize and you can’t snorkel the 700 patch reefs. Whine. This is what happened on a recen

Amazing photos – Glover’s Reef Belize from space!
In looking back through some old pictures from our archives, Lucy came across some awesome shots of Glover’s Atoll taken by satellite, including some of the Yucatan peninsula from some different angles which highlight just how beautiful Belize’s barrier reef and atolls are from space. The spectacular color of the water inside the atolls are caused by the sand bottom of the shallow area

60 Minutes visits healthy Cuban reef, very similar to Glover’s Reef
Anderson Cooper, in a report recently on 60 Minutes, visits with coral reef specialists at a remote coral reef off the coast of Cuba: The Gardens of the Queen.

In this regar

How far is it from Glovers Reef to Caye Caulker
Many people inquire about combining our all-inclusive island package with a short stay at Caye Caulker on their own. This is easy, but you wouldn’t go from one directly to the other. In a nutshell, all roads in Belize lead to Belize City. No one would travel from Glovers Reef to Caye Caulker, or visa versa unless you chartered a boat, and that would be expensive (my best guess: about $1200-1500

Atoll or island. What is it?
Many people who contact us are confused about the difference between an atoll and an island. We own the island Long Caye, which is located at Glover’s Atoll, also called Glover’s Reef. We often hear “I want to visit your island, Glover’s Reef.” But this is incorrect. If you are also unclear as to just what an atoll is, I hope that this will help. Atolls are made of co
