Maya Beach is located midway down the 16 mile Placencia Peninsula in Southern Belize. Along the east side of the peninsula is the white sandy beaches and the Caribbean Sea. The west side is a mangrove filled lagoon with the majestic Maya Mountains rising in the background. Maya Beach is located 3 miles north of the Garifuna village of Seine Bight, 5 miles north of the Placencia airstrip, and 8 miles north of Placencia village. Maya Beach is two miles long, and we are located in the middle, with several restaurants, two grocery stores, and a couple of beach bars located within walking distance. We are far enough away though that you can still enjoy peace and quiet, while enjoying the sounds of the lapping water and the many different exotic bird sounds.
A two hour flight to Belize International airport is available through Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas, Houston, Miami and Los Angeles on American Airlines, United, Delta, TACA, and US Airways. The airport code for Belize International Airport is BZE. Hourly flights are available to Placencia airstrip on Maya Island Air, about a 30 to 45 minute flights. You can also rent a car in Belize City and enjoy the drive through the Maya Mountains on the Hummingbird Highway. The drive takes about three hours.
We have two bungalows ideal for couples and honeymooners, but will sleep 3 people comfortably. Your bungalow has a queen size bed and full size sleeper sofa. Inside is fully varnished hardwood with locking dresser, two ceiling fans, a floor fan, private bath, and hot water. Our fully screened bungalow is self-accommodating. We provide you with all your needed supplies like sheets, towels, beach towels, kitchen towels. Your kitchen comes equipped with refrigerator, microwave, toaster, two-burner stove, coffee maker, complimentary coffee, blender, cooking utensils, sugar, salt, pepper, and spices. We will help stock your fridge with refreshments for your arrival. You can buy additional groceries from Elvis's Grocery Store and the Mini-Mart just down the road. We will also stop at a grocery store after picking you up from the airstrip so you can buy your own supplies.
Your hosts, Bill and Adriane are on site, and can help set up any adventures or activities you might be interested in such as Monkey River, Cockscomb/Jaguar Reserve, Maya Ruins, snorkeling, diving, sailing, fishing, and caving. We can also call you a taxi so you can explore the peninsula. There is also a local car rental if you'd like to go off on your own adventure to perhaps see a waterfall.
Belize has a 66 foot 'Queens Land' along the beach, which gives the public access to walk the beach along the whole peninsula. Enjoy walking our sandy beaches to nearby bars and restaurants. Or swim off our shore in the shallow safe water. On calm days, snorkel coral heads off our beach. It takes about 20 minutes to kayak out to False Caye with our complimentary sea kayaks. False Caye is a small mangrove filled island surrounded by coral beds providing excellent free snorkeling. Maybe you'll be the lucky one to see the dolphins playing and the rays jumping. Or you can take the kayaks over to the lagoon, and enjoy exploring for manatee and crocodiles.

Bill and Adriane Taylor bought this property in 1998. We decided to leave the fast-paced rat race of the states, for a slower-paced life here in Maya Beach. We hope you will enjoy our little piece of paradise.
