La Barra Cedar Beach

The future for La Barra Cedar Beach looks bright, with plans in the works for a retirement community and a nature reserve. At this time, however, the beach remains secluded and untouched. Despite being privately owned, the owner graciously allows free access to anyone who would like to swim or play on the beach. You'll just have to stop by Lenny's Shopping Center on Chunox to get the keys to the gate.

Set near the middle of Corozal District, 2.7 miles north-northeast of Chunox, La Barra Cedar Beach is on the North edge of Belize. You should think about stopping by regardless of whether you are staying particularly close by.

How to Access The Beach
The beach is just north of Chunox Village, across from Cooper Bank.
