Nearby Beaches

South Placencia Beach

Naturally, since Los Porticos sits directly on South Placencia Beach, laying out in the sun is popular with guests staying here. South Placencia provides a beautiful beach spot off the east coast of the country. The area is a popular location for visitors and locals alike, containing many smaller resorts and restaurants steps away from the white, sandy beaches.

The nearest one is Seine Bight Beach. Seine Bight is located on the northern end of the Placencia peninsula. The area offers secluded swimming spots and boasts over four miles of sandy beaches and crystal clear water.

If you're interested in a stretch of sand that attracts very few tourists, Maya Beach could be a better choice for you. Maya Beach provides a simple, isolated way to experience the beaches of Belize. Small, sparse resorts dot the area, but don't detract from the turquoise waters of the Caribbean sea and the soft, white sand. It's situated only a short cab trip away.
