Beaches on Ambergris Caye

The beaches of Ambergris Caye, while swimmable, are not the most appealing beaches you'll ever encounter.  The shores themselves are small, blocked of every view yards by piers for boats to take off from, and the waters themselves are thick with sea grass (known as turtle grass locally).  Meanwhile, the shores are made of coral sand and sandals or water shoes are recommended for a more pleasurable experience. 

Which Beaches Are Available?

You will discover a small variety of beaches to enjoy on the island. You can click on specific beach names for detailed information about that beach.

Ambergris Caye Southeast

Debbie's Beach: Finding Debbie' sBeach is not too hard, as there is only one main road on the Ambergris Cay. Taking the road north out of San Pedro, the road is located a little after Ak'bol Yoga Retreat and should be the third right after that.

Another place worth considering is Ambergris Caye Southeast. Transportation to the island requires travel by air or water. Water taxis travel from Belize City, while flights from the International airport takes around 15 minutes.

You can look through the following table for a list of beaches located on the island.
