Lighthouse Reef Atoll
One of three atolls in Belize, Lighthouse Reef Atoll is blessed with a handful of the most prized natural sights along the Belize Barrier Reef. The Great Blue Hole attracts divers eager to add a notch to their diving belt by exploring an over 400-foot deep blue underwater cavern. On shore, Half Moon Caye Monument, the country’s first protected site, is a turtle-nesting beach dotted with towering palm trees and no permanent inhabitants save for hermit crabs. Last but not least, you can view a thriving red-footed booby sanctuary, the only one in the Western Hemisphere aside from the Galapagos. It’s no wonder Lighthouse Reef is a popular day tripper choice, whether you dive, snorkel, or simply love nature.
