It’s official: Belize is one of the best diving destinations in the world. Having snagged several awards in Scuba Diving Magazine’s 2024 Reader’s Choice Awards, this tiny Caribbean country has proven itself yet again as a destination that definitely should be at the top of travel lists. Whether you’re fond of close encounters with marine life or are looking for steep dive walls and underwater photo ops, grab your scuba gear and set your sights on Belize. And when you do, count on Coco Plum Island Resort to make your trip a spectacular one. Be sure to add diving in Belize to your itinerary when you book a stay at this all-inclusive private island. 

Paradise on the Water

“Do as much as you want or as little. Diving on the reef is a bucket list adventure. We were able to totally relax, reconnect, and fall in love all over. There’s a reason this is an award-winning resort and a reason it’s become our new happy place.” –Steve B, Coco Plum Guest, TripAdvisor Review


Crystal clear water. Shady palm trees. Colorful cabanas. Coco Plum Island Resort has all the makings of an idyllic slice of Caribbean paradise. And though just 9 miles (or a 30-minute boat ride) away from Belize’s tranquil southern coast, this private island feels like it’s a world away – in all the right ways, of course. Hundreds of islands dot Belize’s Caribbean coast, but there are quite a few things that allow this island in particular to stand out among the crowd.

Adults-only and dripping with romance, Coco Plum is also an award-winning stay. Trip Advisor travelers recently voted it as the 3rd best Small Stay in the world. The island has also been dubbed one of the 15 Best All-inclusive Honeymoon Resorts Around the World by Travel + Leisure. It’s laidback luxury at its finest, and if you’re looking for some underwater adventure, then Coco Plum Island Resort has got that covered too. 

Add Belize Diving to Your All-Inclusive Experience

When spending a week (or two) on a private island, why not go all-inclusive? After all, being on island time means not having to sweat the small stuff, and instead focusing all your energy on relaxing and unwinding. Coco Plum Island Resort is an all-inclusive stay that will cover all your bases – from transport to meals and even a couple of snorkeling trips. And, for dive enthusiasts, a la carte diving tours that can be added to your trip promise some incomparable underwater experiences. Simply express your interest in diving when booking your all-inclusive stay. Then, when you’re on the island, schedule your dives with the island’s front desk.

Dive the Belize Barrier Reef – the second longest in the world – and explore the hidden gems of uncrowded southern Belize.  Explore the vast Southwater Caye Marine Reserve, boasting some of the best wall dives in the country and home to spectacular marine life like spotted eagle rays and nurse sharks. 


Take a trip to the Glover’s Reef Atoll, known for its unique cut-offs, and coral formations, where sites like Manta Wall and The Aquarium offer an array of unique experiences. Feeling extra adventurous? Then let Coco Plum Island Resort help you check “dive with whale sharks” off your bucket list.  

Whether you’re a novice or you’ve got quite a few dives under your belt, Coco Plum Island Resort is the place to be (and the place to dive with) in 2024 and beyond.
