The Placencia Resort is located on the Placencia Peninsula, a verdant, 18-mile long isthmus in southern Belize. Poised near the largest barrier reef in the western hemisphere and near the country’s extensive network of protected areas and parks. Placencia is located on the southeast coast of Belize. Described by travelbelize.org as “the coast with the most” for good reason.
The peninsula of Placencia offers endless options for adventure and relaxation. Go diving or snorkeling along the Barrier Reef, explore mangroves and deserted cayes by kayak, spot birds and wildlife on Monkey River or at Cockscomb Nature Sanctuary, or go sport fishing for tarpon, permit, yellowfin tuna, or king mackerel. Then again, you could just stretch out with your favorite drink on the silky sands of the most spectacular beaches on the Belize mainland, listening to the waves breaking against the shore.
Check out the village of Placencia with the complimentary shuttle or bikes to take in the arts and crafts and enjoy its local flair, culture, bars and restaurants. The Placencia Peninsula is known for its colorful beach bars and the longest sidewalk in the world, offering many shopping options.
