Turtle Inn Hotel, Belize

Rise early, amble out of your thatched, Balinese-style cottage onto the fine white sand, and yours could be the only footprints on the immaculate beach. In front of you lies the sparkling Caribbean, inviting you to take your first dip of the day and just offshore – beneath the gentle, aquamarine waves - lies a coral reef that offers some of the best scuba diving in the world.

You may come to Turtle Inn for its personal hideaway atmosphere, its sublime relaxation in an impeccable, ‘desert-island-castaway’ setting, or even its famous connections with the Coppola movie family. But you will be captivated by the undersea world. Even if you’re a novice diver you will soon be immersed in the warmth of the Caribbean; an entrancing world of kaleidoscopic colours, brilliant fish and fantastical coral formations.
