Welcome to Glover's Reef
If you're serious about getting away from it all, Glover's Reef is the place. Named after the 18th-century English pirate John Glover (who attacked Spanish merchant ships from here), the atoll is 16 miles long and 7 miles wide, and is pretty much as far from mainland Belize as you can get. Lying like a string of pearls in a blue sea, Glover's consists of half a dozen small cays of white sand, palm trees, and a handful of low-key resorts, diving and kayaking bases.
Despite the remote location, weekly packages including transport make Glover's an affordable getaway.
