I’m trying to remember my first trip to Secret Beach on the West Side of Ambergris Caye. I don’t know if it’s a lack of distinct seasons or just my advancing age but my memory? It ain’t good.
I moved to San Pedro, full time, in May of 2007 living just south of town. To me, and for many years, north of the bridge was FAR AWAY. A serious trip…
In 2009 and 2010, the first road to the west side of Ambergris Caye was built by a developer. And at that time, a few people started venturing out to “Secret Beach”. To an area on the west side called “Ambergris Bay”.
And the road north was a SITUATION.
Let’s fast forward to July 2018. Yesterday in fact.
My friend and I drove over the Secret Beach. The road out there is in GREAT shape. And here’s what we saw.
First a few pictures of a plant that I am STILL trying to find information on. It’s a flowering tree…one that grafts onto other trees…
Here you can see where it attaches – almost a bulb.
And then we headed a bit south to Blue Bayou Bar. The view from their dock is of Cayo Rosario – the planned site for a huge development right in the middle of the Hol Chan Marine Reserve.
