Getting to Gladden Only a Few Hours Away ONE OF THE MOST STUNNING LOCATIONS IN THE WORLD Gladden lies directly on the edge of the widest and most picturesque section of the Belize Barrier Reef in the Caribbean sea. It is the longest reef in the Western Hemisphere and the 2nd largest in the World. Located 20 miles off the coast of Placencia, Belize, Gladden is the furthest island out from the mainland and closest to the protected side of the reef where the water is calm and clear. The magical “Gladden Split” where the whale sharks congregate once a year is a mere few miles away. This is one of the most beautiful locations  in the World.
