Snorkeling on the World's Second Largest Reef in Belize
Rattled by the 45-minute motorboat trip from Placencia, you step onto the dazzling white sand beach of this remote, ultra-diminutive island, and it hits you: there is no other land in sight. You've literally been plopped into the middle of the Caribbean Sea on a three-acre island with little more than a thicket of palm trees and four cabanas run by Placencia's Inn at Robert's Grove. Happily, this island paradise rests amid hundreds of feet of calm, shallow water, thanks to its place within the world's second largest barrier reef. The snorkeling, fishing, and kayaking are some of the world's finest.
