Green Globe is the largest and most prestigious agency certifying resorts around the World based upon their environmental and societal sustainability. Turneffe Flats has been Green Globe Certified since 2014 and was recently audited for recertification. The audit process rigorously evaluates at all aspects of the resort’s infrastructure, operations, social interaction and environmental impacts. Turneffe Flats once again is proud to receive the top “green” rating in Belize, and possibly the highest rating in the entire Caribbean.
For more than three decades, Turneffe Flats has been known as one of the world’s finest saltwater destinations. Our diverse fishery, with the opportunity to land bonefish, permit, and tarpon on any given day, sets Turneffe Flats apart from other destinations. Turneffe’s crystal clear, wadeable flats make bonefishing a consistent mainstay of our fishing. Turneffe is also one of a select group of saltwater destinations offering anglers the opportunity to experience the excitement of casting to tailing permit every month of the year. Additionally, Turneffe is home to large, migratory tarpon between April and October with the resident tarpon caught throughout the year. Snook, snapper, jacks, and variety of other species, round out an exceptionally diverse fishery.
Turneffe Atoll is the largest of only four coral atolls in the Western Hemisphere and is best-known for its variety of saltwater fishing. Turneffe Flats is located on a remote, picturesque point featuring white sand beach and coconut palms. An expansive bonefish flat is right outside your front door and a healthy coral reef is only a stone’s throw away.

When it comes to green tourism and environmental sustainability, Turneffe Flats Lodge has long been one of the western Caribbean’s most innovative fishing and diving resorts. More than ten years in the making, Turneffe Flats’ new solar-powered system is one of the largest off-grid solar systems in the Caribbean, allowing the fishing, diving, and ecotourism resort to greatly reduce its dependence on diesel power. Located 30 miles from mainland Belize, the system is capable of producing 100 kilowatts of power, providing enough energy to operate the entire resort, which accommodates 30 guests per week.

Turneffe Flats founder and owner, Craig Hayes, advised that the new solar panels will provide approximately 80% of the island’s energy needs. This state of the art system will replace 17,000 gallons of diesel fuel each year. Craig Hayes also believes that in addition to being the right thing to do environmentally, replacing diesel with the sun also makes good economic sense.

Turneffe Flats has tried to set standards for environmental stewardship and sustainability and provide top-level guest service while having the least possible impact on the environment. Their new energy system is part of a long-term effort to lower their carbon footprint.
