Mullins Beach

Mullins Beach is tucked away on the east coast of Belize facing the Caribbean ocean. The area is largely undeveloped, providing a private beach experience with shallow, calm waters and a stretch of tan, soft sand.

Situated in Central Belize, Mullins Beach is on the East edge of Belize. You might think about stopping by even if you are not staying very close. If you plan to sunbathe or take a nap on a fairly secluded beach, you should consider going off the beaten path to Mullins Beach.

How to Access The Beach
Mullins Beach is accessible via a long road off of Coastal Highway, requiring vehicular transportation (with a preference for 4-wheel drive). The long dirt road to the coast leads to the beach, where visitors can park on the beach.

Amenities and Ambiance

Located in central Belize, Mullins Beach remains a undeveloped, natural beach. Palm trees and tropical vegetation dot the beach front, while shallow waters from the Caribbean Sea gently wash up on the shore. The beach sits east of the Sibun Forest Reserve.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot.

If you happen to like sunny days that offer an idyllic environment, then you may want to try Mullins Beach; it's hidden away within a less urbanized section of Belize.
