Turneffe Island Resort is the second-oldest sport fishing operation in all of Belize. Started by Vic Barothy in 1964, this operation is part of saltwater flats fishing history. As storied a place the lodge has been in saltwater fishing history, the grounds, accommodations, and overall operation would be totally unrecognizable to Barothy today. This immaculate private island located on the southern tip of Turneffe Atoll is simply stunning – as pristine, private, and secluded as anything in the entire Caribbean. Turneffe Island Resort’s location allows you to be on the flats fishing within minutes of leaving the dock each morning. With its location on the southern end of Turneffe, anglers are minutes from some of the best flats fishing for bonefish and permit, with opportunities to target tarpon in the various channels and cuts of the atoll.

Lodging Details
The social centers for Turneffe Island Resort include a spacious, air-conditioned main lodge and the beachside bar. A pre-dinner gathering at the bar for hors d’oeuvres and refreshments is customary after a day fishing, diving, or snorkeling on the atoll. A large deck area and a swimming pool sit next to the bar and the main lodge, perfect for non-anglers as well as fishermen looking to relax after a day on the water. Guests at Turneffe Island Resort have three different choices for accommodations during their stay.

Private Villas
Located on the southeastern side of the island the private villas offer you more privacy from the main Resort. These 8 unique free-standing accommodations offer a variety of amenities such as wrap-around porches, canopy-style beds, a large sitting area, and a breathtaking view of the Caribbean Sea. Rooms are equipped with either one king bed, one queen, or one full-size bed, as well as a set of stuffed wicker chairs and a coffee table with a reading lamp. Each room has a 2 cubic foot mini bar/refrigerator, magnifying mirror, and hairdryer. Anglers can take their pick from an indoor spacious shower or a larger outdoor private shower.

Superior Second-Level Guestrooms
Tucked between local vegetation and native trees, the 2nd level of the island building offers a bird’s eye view of the Caribbean Sea. Rooms are equipped with one king bed or two twin beds, a set of stuffed wicker chairs, and a coffee table with a reading lamp. Each room has a magnifying mirror, hairdryer, and local art trims. A minibar/refrigerator is available upon request. Anglers can take their pick from an indoor spacious shower or a larger outdoor private shower.

Deluxe Ground floor Guestroom
Located on the main level of the island building. Rooms are equipped with either one king bed or two twin beds, a set of stuffed wicker chairs, and a coffee table with a reading lamp. Each room has a magnifying mirror, hairdryer, and local art trims. A minibar/refrigerator is available upon request. Anglers can pick from an indoor spacious shower or a larger outdoor private shower.

Food and Beverages
Meals at the lodge are a combination of Belizean and American dishes served plated and family-style in the large dining area. Fresh seafood, local produce, and home-baked pastries are standard fare. Three delicious meals per day are provided, and each morning you will awaken to fresh coffee or tea served on your private verandah.  The chefs at Turneffe Island Lodge are fantastic and will leave you full and ready for the day’s fishing ahead. The main bar is well-stocked with premium liquor and offers a variety of wines, as well as local beers.

Typical Length of Stay
The standard package includes seven (7) nights / six (6) fishing days (Saturday to Saturday). Partial week packages are available with some restrictions. Please call Yellow Dog for details.

Non-Angling Activities and Options
For non-anglers, the offshore atolls of Belize are consistently rated among the “world’s best dive destinations,” and Turneffe Island Resort is ideally located to take advantage of this premier diving. Dive vacations can also include a day trip to Lighthouse Reef to explore the famous Blue Hole, Half Moon Wall, and Long Caye. PADI instruction is available on-site, and the Lodge offers a wide range of courses, including Discover programs and Advanced Diver Certification. For non-divers, Turneffe Island Resort also offers snorkeling packages and rest/relaxation packages. The snorkeling on the Turneffe Atoll can entertain and wow both novice and seasoned visitors to tropical waters.

Internet / Communications
Wi-Fi is available free of charge for lodge guests. Please bring your own laptop or mobile device to access the internet. Depending on your service plan, some cell phones will also work in Belize City, but not out on the Atoll.
