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.

Positioned in the vicinity of Dangriga, Hummingbird Beach is on the South East coast of Belize. You might think about stopping by regardless of whether you're staying nearby. Peace and quiet is what you'll find at the majority of Belize's beaches, but Hummingbird Beach is a little different. You'll still find it has a calm, serene mood, but you can visit 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.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here, which is something to consider if you're bringing the kids, or plan to spend all day outside.
