Shore Snorkeling From Tranquility Bay Resort Belize

Here is our report about shore snorkeling from Tranquility Bay Resort Belize. We had wanted to check out the Belize reef for some time, but were turned off by the fact that you have to take boats to get out to the reef. So we were very excited to find a resort, Tranquility Bay Resort on Ambergris Cay in Belize, that claims: “We are the only resort on the island where you can safely snorkel from the beach to the reef!”
We stayed there for a week February 2014, and while that statement is true, the quality of the reef there is not all that healthy. However, we found the small patch reefs close to shore to be quite interesting for snorkeling – healthy coral and high fish diversity. It is super easy access and a really nice resort too. It would be a great place for kids.
