As the largest and only true city on Ambergris Caye, San Pedro is the main place to meet, eat, shop and transition from land to land. Its shabby chic downtown area is home to barefoot strollers, adventurous fisherman and clusters of family owned businesses, openly inviting newcomers to experience the real essence of Belize.
San Pedro Beach
Get away from the hustle and bustle of the village life to experience serenity at its purest. Our exclusive white sand bar is the largest unspoiled span of beach on Ambergris Caye. Stretched along the lower west side, it faces a small island frequented by celebrities. Recline under one of the straw umbrellas posted along the shoreline, hold a private BBQ or go for a dip in the turquoise blue Caribbean.
