Corozal Bay: Corozal Bay features a long stretch of beach, adding to the local town area. The beaches are well integrated into the larger town and while small, still feature soft, white sand and calm waters perfect for swimming.

A second place to consider is La Barra Cedar Beach. Clean and well-kept, La Barra Cedar Beach is a great spot for a quiet day at the beach. Swimming is plausible because the surf is calm, and the grounds are often used for picnicking.
