The Belize Barrier Reef is a series of coral reefs straddling the coast of Belize, roughly 300 meters offshore in the north and 40 kilometers in the south within the country limits. The Belize Barrier Reef is a 300 kilometers  long section of the 900 kilometers long Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, which is continuous from Cancun on the northeast tip of the Yucat√°n Peninsula through the Riviera Maya up to offshore Guatemala, making it the second largest coral reef system in the world after the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, popular for scuba diving and snorkeling. It is Belize's top tourist destination, attracting almost half of its 260,000 visitors, and vital to its fishing industry.
Charles Darwin described it as the most remarkable reef in the West Indies in 1842.
