Placencia Peninsula

Placencia

SHIRTS, SHOES AND WORRIES ARE OPTIONAL.

Known locally as “Barefoot Perfect,” Placencia Peninsula is 16 miles of golden sand, the only golden-sand beaches on mainland Belize. After hanging out on the beach, snorkeling and scuba diving, head into town and get a feel for what a traditional Kriol (Creole) fishing village is like.
