The Placencia Penisula

If you have been considering a trip south of the border, you would be hard-pressed to find someplace better than Belize’s Placencia Peninsula. If you can imagine the quintessential tropical landscape, Placencia is for you. This 16-mile-long peninsula is home to one of Belize’s most prosperous beach towns. Keep reading for an idea of all Placencia offers!

The Best Mainland Beaches

The peninsula is not only the longest beach in mainland Belize but also the only part with sugar-white beaches. The peninsula touches upon Maya Beach, Placencia Village, and Seine Bight, all featuring public beaches. Placencia Village is a tourist area, flush with bars, restaurants, nightlife, and golden sands. Conversely, Seine Bight, and Maya Beach offer sugar-white sands.

The World’s Longest Street

The Placencia Sidewalk is a 4,071 foot long, 4-foot wide feature recognized as the world’s narrowest main street. Follow the pavement to run into countless artisans, eateries, and specialized shops.

Encounter Unique Cultures Like the Garifuna and Creole

Placencia was established as a fishing village separate from the rest of Belize. While its dominant culture was Creole, Maya, Mestizo, and Spanish families were also present. Seine Bight is a Garifuna settlement just 5 miles from Placencia Village. Do yourself a favor and learn about Belize’s most unique ethnic groups.

Have an Undersea Encounter with Whale Sharks

Snapper spawn between April and June and the gentle giants known as whale sharks know it. If you happen to be visiting during this time, it is a really amazing experience to swim along with these behemoths beneath the waves as they search for their fishy food.

Plenty of Wildlife Experiences Throughout the Year

Head 12 miles below Placencia and you will discover the subtropical rainforest set against the Monkey River. Take a tour along this river and you are bound to run into spectacular avians like the heron, manager, and toucan. Most of the Monkey River is considered a Special Conservation Area and its wildlife wonders extend to howler monkeys, iguanas, and crocodiles.
