Reef Vacation

Belize Barrier Reef

The Belize Barrier Reef is a series of coral reefs along the coast of Belize. With over 70 hard coral reefs, 36 soft reefs, and 500 species of fish only 10 percent of this coral reef has been discovered! Belize also became the first country in the world to completely ban bottom trawling in December of 2010. A large portion of the reef is protected by the Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System, which includes seven marine reserves, 450 cays, and three atolls. Make sure to get your routine vaccines, and some doctors suggest a Hepatitis A and a Typhoid vaccine because these can be passed by food contamination. Make sure you have a renewed passport when traveling to Belize. For accommodations there are many options but I suggest Royal Palm Island Resort. Now you have all the background you need to explore!

Great Barrier Reef

Vacation in the Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is the world's largest coral reef system composed of over 2,900 individual reef] and 900 islands stretching for over 2,300 kilometres (1,400 mi) over an area of approximately 344,400 square kilometres (133,000 sq mi). The reef is located in the Coral Sea, off the coast of Queensland, Australia. Make sure you renew your passport when visiting Australia. Henderson Farm Park Retreat is the number one accommodation for visiting the Great Barrier Reef. As long as you get your routine vaccines you should be fine visiting the Great Barrier Reef. There are fishing restrictions and do not use non native fish as bait.
