Highlights of Belize

Placencia

Scroll

The long, thin peninsula of Placencia, 40 km south of Dangriga, is one of Belize’s most popular holiday locations with perhaps the best beaches on the mainland. It was once a quiet Garifuna community but now there are numerous hotels and resorts catering to all budgets, and a small town at the tip of the peninsula with local bars and restaurants. From Placencia it is easy to explore Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, Monkey River, inland Maya ruins such as Nimli Punit, and the myriad islands dotting the southern reaches of the Belize Barrier Reef system.
