Turneffe Atoll 5Its rich coral formations make it an ideal sport for snorkelers. Fishing here, as at all of the atolls, is world-class. You can fly-fish for bonefish and permit in the grassy flats, or go after migratory tarpon from May to September in the channels and lagoons of the atoll. Jack, barracuda, and snappers lurk in the mangrove-lined bays and shorelines. Billfish, sailfish, and other big creatures are in the blue water around the atoll. Turneffe also has an extensive coverage of mangroves which makes it a great fish nursery.
