The Belize Barrier Reef is located off the east coast of Belize.

It part of the MesoAmerican Barrier Reef — the largest coral reef in the Western Hemisphere and the second largest barrier reef in the world.

The Belize Barrier Reef comprises a string of barrier and fringing reefs, atolls and patch corals, lagoons, sea grass beds and mangrove forests, extending over hundreds of miles. It is a popular destination for both diving and snorkeling.  In addition to its barrier reef, it also boasts three distinct Caribbean atolls: Turneffe Atoll, Glover’s Reef and Lighthouse Reef.

The reef system is home to more than 65 species of stony coral, 350 species of mollusk, more than 500 species of fish, and endangered species (including several types of sea turtle).

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
