The Turneffe Islands are exceptionally located outside the Belize Barrier Reef, have outstanding diving and snorkeling year round and are rated as one of the top Saltwater Fly Fishing destinations in the world. The Castaways Reef property is a unique blend of style, comfort and adventure. It was carefully designed to minimize ongoing operational and maintenance costs, without negatively impacting the environment. Overhead costs were minimized through the usage of smart technologies and green technologies incorporating hybrid power and water systems.
The Reef is paradise to both naturalists and water sportsmen, as it includes over 150 species of fish; an abundance of wildlife, including the Osprey Eagle, Iguanas, Saltwater Crocodile, and more; and is perfect for diving, snorkeling and saltwater fly-fishing. For example one salt water fly fisherman guest landed 19 Bonefish in just 4 days in front of the Castaways Reef beach, walking along the island’s flats, and fishing "Grand Slams" are common among the fisherman in these waters. The neighboring resort provides plenty of guides for you to enjoy your choice of water sport or activity. If scuba diving is your passion, arrangements can be made with area resorts that specialize in world class diving in the Turneffe Atoll and neighboring Blue Hole and China Wall dive sites. The Turneffe Atoll has eight world-renowned dive and snorkeling sites. The Reef’s supply boat is also available for area adventures and deep-sea fishing.
