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. The beach itself features palm trees and tropical vegetation, with a small area of soft sand.

Located in Stann Creek District, 2.3 miles south-southeast of Hopkins, Sittee Marina Beach is on the South East edge of Belize. You should think about stopping by even if you are not staying particularly close by. Beachgoers tend to want a compromise between fun and relaxation, and Sittee Marina Beach offers that middle ground. It's a spot which is rarely too crowded, even though its not far from some of Belize's best hotspots.

How to Access The Beach

The beach is accessible by vehicle or foot, as it is directly off of Sittee River Road. Visitors are advised against using taxis, etc., as the area is quite small and tucked away from major places of interest.
