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.

Located in Seine Bight Village, Seine Bight Beach is on the South East coast of Belize. You might think about stopping by regardless of whether you're staying particularly close by. Seine Bight Beach has fast become the favorite of many vacationers; it has a somewhat urban and convenient setting, but is usually not over-crowded. If you'd rather socialize than take a nap on a completely empty beach, but don't want to fight the crowds every step of the way, this beach is right in the middle.

How to Access The Beach
The beach area is accessible by foot and car, and the narrow nature of the peninsula ensures that it won't be difficult to spot. The area is in close proximity to the airport (Placencia airport), which means that taxis and shuttles will know the area well.

Amenities and Ambiance

Seine Bight Beach offers four miles of sand, mostly in close proximity to local restaurants and inns. Palm trees and tropical vegetation cover the area leading up to a strip of beach. The water is incredibly clear and a shallow sea floor makes for excellent snorkeling.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun.

Since Seine Bight Beach will be located in a popular area that can get crowded, you'll want to plan accordingly.
