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.

Positioned on the island of Ambergris Caye, Debbie's Beach is on the East coast of the island, You might want to drop by even if you are not staying in the immediate vicinity.

How to Access The 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. If you see El Pescador and Captain Morgan's Retreat, you have gone too far.

Amenities and Ambiance

Debbie's Beach is located behind a sandbar, meaning that the waves that do hit the beach are generally small, making it a good beach for casual swimming. Additionally, behind the beach is a large group of trees that completely block the view of the beach from the road, granting beach goers a deal of privacy.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, which is something to consider if you're bringing the kids, or plan to spend all day outside.

Remember to take into account that Debbie's Beach is in an area which is a popular spot, so make sure to get a spot!
