Belize’s Northern Beaches are renowned for being among the world’s best island getaway locations. Whether you choose the lively and eclectic Ambergris Caye, the calm and laid back Caye Caulker, or even your own private island, you’re bound to encounter white sands and sapphire seas that make living in your dream beach destination that much closer to becoming reality.

Where to Stay

  • Victoria House Resort
    The world-renowned Victoria House Resort is located on the south end of San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, and as the name suggests, they offer a Victorian ambience that’s sure to charm. Enjoy being pampered, or take advantage of the many thrilling adventures that they have to offer.
  • Barefoot Caye Caulker Hotel
    Experience the best of Caye Caulker with a stay at Barefoot Hotel, located right in the center of the island.

  • Weezie’s Oceanfront Hotel
    Weezie’s offers modern and chic condos situated right near the sea. And, since it’s located a bit of a distance away from the center of the island, it is a great place for anyone wanting a tranquil and relaxing stay.

Where to Eat

  • Elvi’s Kitchen
    Having been in operation for some forty plus years, Elvi’s Kitchen is one of San Pedro’s—and Belize’s—most renowned restaurants. They offer delectable dishes and cater to most food preferences.

  • Jyoto Japanese Restaurant & Sushi Bar
    Located inside the Mahogany Bay Village, Jyoto is one of the best places in Belize to get Japanese cuisine. They offer a wide range of dishes from traditional to modern fusions, all of which are sure to leave your taste buds happy. Just recently, Jyoto also added a brand new tea lounge and cafe, where you can sip on your favorite brews while enjoying the scenic views.
  • The Belize Chocolate Company
    While not a restaurant, the Belize Chocolate Company in San Pedro Town is a store that shouldn’t be missed. They offer a wide range of chocolate bars and other chocolate products made using organic cacao sourced locally. Choose anything from chocolate bars and cookies to truffles and brownies. You can even try out their chocolate soaps.

What to Do

  • The Belize Barrier Reef
    With the second longest barrier reef in the world right at your fingertips, it’s a given that snorkeling should be at the top of your to-do list while visiting Belize’s Northern Beaches. Witness first-hand the country’s breathtaking biodiversity, including the wide array of coral and other marine life that get to call the reef their home.
  • The Great Blue Hole
    Whether from up above in an airplane or down below while diving, exploring Belize’s Great Blue Hole is a spectacular experience and one that is not to be missed. This magnificent sinkhole is over 400 feet deep, and in addition to being a diver’s paradise, it paints a perfect picture of Belize’s natural beauty.
  • Shark Ray Alley
    Just a short boat ride from either Ambergris Caye or Caye Caulker lies one of Belize’s most popular snorkeling locations. Enjoy a memorable experience like none other as you swim alongside nurse sharks and stingrays in beautiful turquoise water.
  • Go on A Sunset Cruise
    If you’re looking for an activity that’s on the more tranquil side of things, then why not book a sunset cruise along the coast? Kick back, relax, sip on some rum punch and enjoy some ceviche as you watch the sunset painting the horizon in brilliant golden orange hues.
  • Visit the Split
    The Split in Caye Caulker is a popular spot for tourists, expats, and locals alike. Here, you can go for a swim, enjoy fresh grilled lobster (if it’s in season) and sip on the famous green drink known as Lizard Juice.
