Blackbird Caye Resort

Perfectly placed in paradise on Turneffe Atoll, Blackbird Caye Resort is surrounded by a white-sand beach, mangrove forests, the Caribbean Sea and a turquoise lagoon. Turneffe Atoll is 25 miles off the coast of mainland Belize and home to some of the planet’s best diving. More than 70 dive sites are found within five to 15 minutes of the resort. Because the atoll’s mangrove islands serve as nurseries for juvenile reef fish, the healthy reefs are bursting with biodiversity. Corals and reef fish grace shallow reefs, and bigger fish are drawn to deeper sections of the wall, such as the Elbow Reef. Belize’s most famous dive site, the Blue Hole is just a 45 minute boat ride away. This PADI Five Star Dive Resort’s staff offers guided dives as well as instruction, from Open Water to Divemaster. You can make up to three boat dives daily. Non-divers can sign up for guided snorkeling excursions. This is a splendid tropical retreat for snorkelers, kayakers and nature lovers.

The resort offers 20 private oceanfront cabanas, with hammocks on screened-in balconies that face the Caribbean. Choices of accommodations include a spacious new beach villas, deluxe and superior oceanfront cabanas, and triplex cabanas. No matter where you stay, you’ll be within steps of the resort’s amenities, including the pool, stand-up paddleboards and kayaks, and a palapa-style bar. Local chefs prepare fresh island cuisine daily at the Blackbird Restaurant.

Witconcrete Wreck Dive!
