Retire to a Haven Made for Hammocks in Placencia, Belize
It’s ideal weather in Belize right now for lounging in a beach hammock, under a palm tree, as the emerald green and turquoise shaded waves gently lap up on the warm, golden sand beach… What could be better than sipping a frosty refreshment while gazing out at a tranquil seascape?
And, with 17 miles of coastline, there are many walkable beaches to explore.
This long, narrow peninsula is full of surprises. Driving south—on the only main road—you’ll see waves caressing the golden sand beach to the east; a tranquil lagoon view is to the west with a backdrop of the mystical Maya mountains on the distant mainland.
Given how narrow the peninsula, it feels more like an island—no matter where you are, you’ll be within easy reach of a beach or the lagoon.
The mornings are a perfect time to jump into a kayak, paddle around, and wander. There are few motorboats buzzing close to the peninsula’s coast, which is a blessed relief if you’re seeking a relaxing day at the beach.
