Hol Chan Marine Reserve
Mayan for "Little Channel", Hol Chan is a deep cut in the barrier reef off Ambergris Caye. The park is actively patrolled to ensure no anchoring, no touching the coral, and no fishing. This has resulted in abundant marine life, and healthy Stands of elkhorn coral. There is a strong current that runs through this 30' deep cut, but also dense schools of jacks, snapper, barracuda and grouper.
The largest and most diverse of Belize's three open ocean coral atolls, Turneffe Island is also the most accessible, and has a popular lodge to stay at. The Elbow is the best known dive site on this reef, with the ocean current attracting large schools of pelagic fish.
Lighthouse Reef is the second coral atoll and is the farthest from the mainland, encircling a 30-mile-long lagoon that contains the famous Blue Hole. The reef also offers an abundant variety of topography, such as walls, grooves and channels, and caves. Most of the reef is in protected marine zones.
The third of Belize's coral Atoll's, Glover's Reef is the most remote and least visited atoll, but it offers more than 50 miles of fringing reef. The interior cayes of the atoll are home to small lodges, but Glover's can also be reached by day boats from Hopkins .
