Nearby Beaches

South Placencia Beach

Naturally, since Los Porticos is located directly on South Placencia Beach, relaxing at the water's edge is popular with guests staying at this property. 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 most convenient one to visit 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 searching for a chance to escape the crowds, 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 five miles north of these accommodations.
