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.

A second place that beach-goers can consider is Ambergris Caye Southeast. The Ambergris Caye's beaches are relatively small even at low tide, making the area difficult to recommend for swimming. Still, in 2014 Fodors ranked it as one of the top 15 beaches in the Caribbean.
