Perfect Sunday Weather for Secret Beach
Secret Beach is probably the most visited destination on Ambergris Caye for visitors. The clear, calm waters…the endless soft sandy bottom…it’s an absolutely stunning landscape. But it can also be a bit crowded and a bit…I’m showing my age…a bit loud. THANKFULLY there are plenty of options. If you love sitting in the water eating great food in a party atmosphere…they’ve got that spot. If you want to find some peace and quiet…they have that spot. (Though those are getting harder and harder to find!)
I am working to update my most popular blog post of the past 5 years: My Complete Guide to Secret Beach
Sunday, I headed over…my first trip of 2024 (and probably my first trip in at least 6 months). This “Complete Guide Update” will take 3 or 4 trips and lots of tips from you guys.
Not-At-All-No-Not-One-Bit-Secret Beach has grown like crazy over the last year! Here are some photos from my first trip…so you can see some of what’s new.
You can see the lagoon on both sides – and at this time of year, very pretty birds. I saw 5 or 6 roseate spoonbills (“Belizean flamingos”) feeding. The state of the road? In San Pedro terms: So-so. It’s not a bad drive if you watch for bumps.
Guapo’s First and Last Stop is a nice little bar – with great BBQ. I sometimes pick up chicken BBQ on the way home…
Onward! Passing Roadkill Bar.
Roadies with Double Rum. Not today 😉
On the road approaching Secret Beach there are a few new homes. This one is quite fancy…and looks like they will be renting the smaller cabanas? Maybe? Samurda Villas. I can’t find anything online.
Just ahead I was very happy to find a little convenience store. I stopped in for a Coke Zero. ($3bzd vs. the usual $2bzd in town but that makes sense. There is no electric utilities out at Secret Beach so expect things to be a bit more expensive)
To the beach! I turned left…
To find a number of bars! I stopped in quite a few…
All very rustic..but fun.
Next door Blue Bayou was packed. And the music was loud!
There is a quieter spot to the south with plenty of seating called Wet N Wild.
And then Sunset Beach Club. Roomier for sure. A little rundown but so are many bars at Secret Beach.
The good thing about this area is that there are plenty of options – I’ve only told you about a handful…there are probably 15 bars…maybe more…to choose from.
Ahhhh! I need to run! I’ll share more pictures later…but this is a very good start…
Please please please send me all Secret Beach recommendations since I don’t get there often enough!
