M11645 has long been recognized as a premier saltwater fly fishing, scuba diving and marine ecotourism destination. Located on Belize’s Turneffe Atoll, the largest and most biologically diverse atoll in the Caribbean, we specialize in superior service for a limited number of guests.
Imagine awakening in your air-conditioned beachfront cabin with an incredible tropical seascape of white sand beach, tranquil bonefish flats, lush mangroves and the surf breaking over the reef for miles in either direction. Each morning you can watch a spectacular sunrise from your verandah and when night falls, the stars look close enough to touch. We are ideally located to enjoy all of our 250 square miles of expansive flats, healthy coral reef and remarkably rich marine habitat.
For years M11645 has been known as one of the Caribbean’s premier saltwater fly fishing destinations. The diversity of our saltwater flats fishing sets us apart from other destinations and the opportunity to catch bonefish, permit and tarpon on a given day makes Turneffe Flats one of the rare spots to pursue a ‘Flats Grand Slam’.
We offer you all inclusive fly fishing, diving or snorkeling vacations emphasizing superior personalized service for a limited number of guests at our private island paradise. Over 50 unspoiled dive sites - including the Belize Blue Hole - are yours to explore. Allow yourself to be "pampered in paradise".
The social center for M11645 is our air-conditioned 'Lodge'. A pre-dinner gathering for hors d'oeuvres and refreshments is customary, and our screened verandah is a wonderful place to enjoy the tropical evening with new and old friends.
Our spacious, air-conditioned guest rooms are all located on the beach with panoramic views of Turneffe's coral reef. All rooms are furnished with a queen size bed and an extra-long single bed. Each room has a large private bath with two sinks and a shower.
Our bar is well stocked with Scotch, Bourbon, Gin, Rum, Vodka, Tequila and several liqueurs. In addition, we offer a variety of wines as well as local Belikin beer. Cuban and Dominican cigars are available as well.
Meals are a tasty combination of Belizean and American dishes served family-style. Fresh seafood, local produce and home-baked pastries are standard fare. Three delicious meals are part of our vacation packages.
