The Belize barrier reef
The Belize barrier reef is located only a kilometer away off the island’s Windwards coast. It is the longest barrier reef in the western hemisphere and the second longest in the world. Belize’s three atoll reefs are formed on two levels of submerged crests: Turneffe and Glover. If you sail your luxury catamaran to the south, you will perceive the reef as an uninterrupted white surface stretching south from the Caribbean coast of the Yucatan peninsula.
On the reef’s interior the turquoise water is shallow, while on the exterior it is deep and of a sumptuous dark blue shade. On sunny and bright days the reef appears as a straight dividend between the two shades of blue giving you a marvelous opportunity to fully profit from all the water toys available aboard your luxury charter yacht . However, the barrier reef is much more than just an astounding décor. Without it, the country would have never existed as the reef acts as a natural guardian protecting the land from destructive erosion of the waves. The remarkably clear and shallow waters on the reef’s interior result in a fantastic visualization of the region’s marine life.
