Let others know

Top beaches to give you a Caribbean chill on.

1.      Caye Caulker

Caye Caulker is an island off the coast of Belize which has the best of everything required to be one of the best beaches in Belize. There are no cars, only cyclists and golf carts and even those are strictly limited to a gentle Caribbean pace! Like most other beaches in Belize, there is an abundance of snorkelling and other water activities available. When you’re not in the water, on sleeping in a hammock, then you can feast on the huge amount of fresh seafood that the local communities fish straight out of the local waters.

2.      Placentia

Popularly described as “barefoot perfect” by residents around the area, Placencia, in southern Belize, is known to be home to some of the best beaches in Belize. With its 16-mile long coastline and several pristine beaches, Placencia is surrounded by the Caribbean in the east and the Placencia lagoon in the west. The distance between the city and Placencia is 185 km approximately and can be covered within 3 hours by road or half hour by air. Known for its gorgeous white sandy beaches, the peninsula is full of adventure activities like snorkelling, diving with whale sharks, sailing, and lots of inland excursions. One day tours are available for those who wish to explore the Belize Barrier Reef.

3.      Hopkins

Reflected upon as the friendliest village in Belize, Hopkins is located roughly 140 km from Belize city and 65 km from Placencia. Easily accessible by bus or car, Hopkins is a traditional Garifuna village with its natural vibe intact. No paved pathways, no high rise modern buildings, and no beach cleaners to clean seaweeds, palm leaves, and fallen coconuts, the beach at Hopkins is exactly what a laid-back natural beach surrounding should be. The only resorts are located far away from the coastline and into the city making the atmosphere around the beach completely tranquil. The natives are warm and friendly and believe in welcoming everyone with open arms.

4.      Turneffe Atoll

Turneffe Atoll is like a new star in the running to be one of the best beaches in Belize, having been declared a protected area in 2012 and named as the Turneffe Atoll Marine Reserve. The 131,000 hectare atoll is a mangrove paradise to rival anything elsewhere, and is also home to 30 miles by 10 miles of coral, sting rays and other large fish. The area has perfect conditions for expert divers, novice divers and snorkelers alike. The pristine nature, variety of wildlife and un-tamed wildlife are what make Turneffe Atoll one of the best beaches in Belize.

5.      Ambergris Caye

Home to one of the best dive sites in the country if not in Central America, Ambergris Caye offers a laid-back atmosphere, plenty of water sports, top in line snorkeling, and is the largest island among the hundreds of islands in northern Belize. The town can be a bit overcrowded as compared to other beach towns in the country, however, finding serenity is as easy as hiring a boat from one of the many piers and travel up to the north of Ambergris Caye. Exploring the spectacular Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, also known as the Great Mayan Reef, is the most significant attraction in the area and can’t be missed at all.
