Turneffe Flats Lodge

Be pampered in paradise-a fly fishing, SCUBA diving and eco-adventure resort

For more than 3 decades, Turneffe Flats has been known as one of the world’s top flats fishing and diving resorts. Turneffe Flats is 25 miles east of the mainland of Belize, ideally located to enjoy Turneffe’s 250 square miles of flats, coral reefs and rich marine life. In addition to the fishing program, guests can enjoy a myriad of other activities such as SCUBA diving, snorkeling and the popular Atoll Adventure program. One consideration to add on to your visit is to dovetail it with one of the premier inland eco-tour resorts to enjoy a complete inland/island experience!

Fishing

The diverse fishery, with chances to land bonefish, permit and tarpon on any given day, sets Turneffe Flats apart from other destinations. Turneffe’s crystal clear, wadable flats make bonefishing the mainstay of the fishing program. Large migratory tarpon pass through between April and October.

Accommodation

The lodge has 8 air-conditioned duplex beachfront cabanas and 2 villas, each with common living area and 3 bedrooms (perfect for intact groups). In addition, there is a large lounge and dining facility where guests will enjoy pre-dinner cocktails, followed by excellent family-style dining.

Gear

A 7 or 8 wt. outfit for bonefish, 9 or 10 wt. outfit for permit and baby tarpon, all with tropical saltwater floating lines are recommended. A complete gear list will be sent upon confirmation. Frontiers can provide expert advice on finding the right gear for your trip. Rental gear is available.
