Placencia is a charming, low-key fishing village located at the southern tip of the Placencia Peninsula. It is home to the longest stretch of beach in mainland Belize and the only sun-bleached sand crystal destination in the country that can be accessed by land, air, and sea. The beach is “bare feet perfect” and the congruous mix of humid sea air, crashing waves and gritty sand is sure to satisfy your “vitamin-sea” needs.
Whether you’re coming for a family vacation, destination wedding or honeymoon getaway. The foot traffic pathways and the main street sidewalk community is stress therapy and sun-kissed adventures waiting to be written. Accommodations plentiful from luxury resorts to Airbnb rentals to suit every budget, along with several bars and restaurants will get your olfactory receptors going. Placencia has a decent mix of travelers and locals and serves as the gateway to the southern reef, and a magnet for maritime activities such as kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, and sailing. One can easily bike between the three villages: Maya Beach, Seine Bight and Placencia Village that makes up the peninsula.
