Blue Marlin Beach Resort is a 100% Belizean-owned island resort uniquely situated directly atop the Barrier Reef within Belize’s second largest marine reserve. Specializing in reef and sea adventures, this charming paradise location offers guests easy access to pristine snorkel and dive sites just two to ten minutes from their room, and fly fishers will enjoy the rare treat to be able to wade in shallow flats directly off the island. World-class adventures, combined with personalized guest services, home-style cooking, and barefoot island living makes this relaxing tropical getaway an extraordinary home-away-from-home vacation experience.
