Listed under Fishing in Belize.

Pin It

The Turneffe Atoll is the largest coral atoll in the western hemisphere and as such it has long offered fantastic saltwater fishing opportunities. Less well known is the fact that probably more permit are caught and released at this location than at any other we are aware of.
