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. 

Pick Your Ideal Beach

There are a handful of beaches to consider visiting on the island. For a detailed guide to one particular beach simply click on the names of the ones you want to learn more about.

Ambergris Caye Southeast

Debbie's Beach: While it is located on Ambergris Bay, a popular tourism spot, Debbie's Beach is far enough away from the main areas that it is less crowded. While this means you will not be hunting down free space, it also means you should not be expected any amenities.

Another place worth considering is Ambergris Caye Southeast. Ambergris Caye stands as the most famous of the Belize's cayes. Located close to a reef, the caye's beaches are relatively small, though the available space offers clean, white sand and palm trees.

The table right below provides a few details regarding the beaches available on the island.
