Northern Peninsula and Maya Beach

Some of the best beaches on the Placencia Peninsula—and therefore on mainland Belize—are at the northern end of the peninsula and the Maya Beach areas. The light khaki-color sand is soft, the surf is gentle, and, while the Barrier Reef is miles off the coast here as it is elsewhere in this part of Belize, there is good snorkeling a short kayak ride away, around False Caye just east of Maya Beach.
