Hummingbird Beach

Much more remote than its neighbors to the north, but more accessible than those to the south, Hummingbird Beach is a nice compromise of privacy and efficiency. Visitors will be able to lay out on the sand and collect some sun rays, while other go play in the ocean. Plus, with the beach facing a group of barrier islands, the waters are not as rough as some of the other Belize Beaches.

Located in the vicinity of Dangriga, Hummingbird Beach is on the South East coast of Belize. You might want even if you aren't staying particularly close by. Peace and quiet is what you'll find at the majority of Belize's beaches, but at Hummingbird Beach, you'll find the same sense of serenity, without having to be too far removed from the city's activity.

How to Access The 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.

Amenities and Ambiance

The majority of the beach is free from development, and while that means you can enjoy the quietness of the beach, it also means you should not be expecting too many amenities, or any for that matter.

Please note that public restrooms are not available, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot.
