Although there are many fine beaches located in Belize, most of its coastline does not contain ideal conditions for sunbathing. The mangrove forests that line Belize’s shore create conditions that are not ideal for swimming or sunbathing.
Most people consider the beaches located on the Placencia Peninsula to be the country’s finest. Some of these beaches are completely covered by sand and the water on the coastline is very warm.
The portions where hotels are located on Caye Caulker have been cleared of mangrove forests. However, these sections are not very spacious or impressive. Another beach is located on the Split but similar to the other beaches in the region it is not spectacular.
Portions of Ambergris Caye are clear of heavy forest, especially in the luxury resort areas, and the northern section of the island is not covered in forest. However, this area is not near the resorts.
