Tranquility Bay Beach
If you are wanting some quiet time and a relaxing atmosphere, tranquility bay is the perfect beach for that also the reef is so close that you can easily kayak out. This place is far north, so the likelihood of meeting other people on the beach is slim. You can take a golf cart, but expect to drive over an hour. Arriving to this beach by boat is a nicer option, contact us about planning a boat trip to Northern Ambergris Caye.
The Sandbar (near Secret Beach)
Just a few minutes away from the marvellous secret beach there is the Sandbar is this amazing turquoise shallow water where you could set out your table right in the middle of the water and play some games.

Beaches in San Pedro Town
Boca del Rio Beachfront
The Boca del Rio beach is mostly where many locals gather every weekend. It is a really nice place to be with your family and friends. This beach on the weekends is packed with golf carts not only because it’s beautiful to swim and take some sun but right in the park there is a basketball court and small area for beach soccer. So many locals come and play football and compete.
One of the best things on the island is our central park. The beach is nice and next to the water taxi, you can watch local children play in the playground and get street food from vendors. The beach along central park is nice and sandy and well-kept. You can walk right in and wade out into the Caribbean Sea at your arrival to the island.
Another great aspect to the Central Park location is getting a picture with the sign. To see other locations for great photos in San Pedro click here!
