The Most Glorious, Sargassum-Free Day on North North Ambergris Caye, Belize

Ambergris Caye is the largest and most visited island of the hundreds along Belize’s coast.

For those who are new here – this is me and this is My Guide to Ambergris Caye.

And while the island is about 25 miles long, the town of San Pedro, and the population are located in the southern 1/3 of the caye. As you drive (by boat or by rugged golf cart ride) farther and farther north, buildings are few and far between.

But this post is not about that. For more details on the drive, you can check out his post. Today’s post is about the glorious weather and total lack of sargassum we’ve been enjoying this October.

Here are some of my pictures.

Starting with the drive up there. There are some serious divets and bumps…be ready to get dirty and sore (depending on your age 🙂 )

We took the very bumpy ride around the Margaritaville Belize property (a look at their opening party)

And emerged by Tranquility Bay Resort…looking just gorgeous. So fantastic to see the sargassum OFF the beaches. The fall/winter north winds have whisked much of it away.

How about this lunch view?

And then up to “the property” – it’s not a straight shot by any stretch of the imagination. Not far north of this photo, the “road” veers away from the beach…and you are on a bit of a jungle/mosquito drive. (My favorite favorite favorite mosquito repellent. It changed my life)

The property is Jeff’s new project. We currently have a facebook page and a Instagram Page but have yet to make any announcement. Soon!

Just a GORGEOUS day.

The farther you get north – towards Rocky Point, the more “rocky” the shores gets. The rock is actually tons and tons of coral.

Did anyone lose of barrel of motor oil? As far as trash goes, I think this bright orange looks so stunning on the beach.

We arrived in time for staff lunch. Some fried jack and fresh corn tortillas.
