Glover’s Reef

There are only 4 atolls in the entire Atlantic region and 3 of these are off the coast of Belize. The most southerly of these is Glover’s Reef which is located 70 miles South-East of Belize City and 20 miles directly East from Dangriga. Named after the English pirate, John Glover, who lived on one of the tiny islands 200 years ago. This was an ideal location to plunder the Spanish Galleons in the Bay of Honduras and the British Crown turned a blind eye to his operations. The ships were en route to Spain, laden with treasure from the New World.

Glovers Reef is a 20 mile long, 7 mile wide, circular chain of coral outcrops which surround a crystal clear lagoon with more than 600 coral pinnacles and patch coral heads reaching toward the surface. Sheer walls beginning at 30 feet plummet vertically more than 2,000 feet making this a haven for scuba divers as most of this area is virtually unexplored. Dive trips can be arranged to Glovers from Dangriga, Mayan Island, Tobacco Caye and Southwater Caye.
