Belize is home to some incredible beaches. The coastline of Belize borders the Caribbean sea, and there are over 200 islands located in this area. Most of the islands are uninhabited, but several have been turned into tourist destinations; some are popular, others are under the radar. As a whole, many of Belize’s beaches are still well-kept secrets, despite the popularity of Belize’s great barrier reef, which is the second longest in the entire world. Whether you’re looking to scuba dive or snorkel amazing reefs, swim with whale sharks, or simply sit back and soak up the sun with the sand between your toes, your ideal beach getaway is here in Belize!
