A great base for exploring the surrounding Stann Creek area, Dangriga is also an important town in Garifuna culture.  Whether you've got plans to explore the surrounding area's natural attraction or learn more about the people who live here, there are a few things to keep you interested.  


Hopkins Beach

You'll find a good group of beaches to enjoy in and around the area. Click on the name of the beach to get additional information about that part of the coast.

Hummingbird Beach: Hummingbird Beach is located right off the main road heading South out of Dangriga, and is easily reached by car. There is, however, no official paved parking, so be ready for some off-road parking.

A second place for beach-goers to consider is Hopkins Beach. The beach is accessible from a newly paved road off the Southern Highway. Visitors can enter via foot or nearby parking spots, though there are few lots specifically dedicated to beach parking, so be sure to check with local lot owners.

Sittee Marina Beach: Sittee Marina Beach is a small, private beach area on the east coast of the island. Beachfront properties are located on either side of the area, making the location readily accessible from the local road.

These examples are only some of your choices. To read a more complete discussion of this specific topic, go to this article.
