With more than 15 kilometers stretch of white sands selectively dotted with numerous mangroves to its east and the tourmaline waters of Caribbean Sea to its west, the Belizean peninsula/town of Placentia is an obvious choice for water sport enthusiasts. This picturesque and tranquil beach town marvels at some superb waterfront beauty that, ahead of offering you some superb seafood, would also let you go ga-ga in waterborne adventures (like kayaking, snorkeling, diving, saltwater fly fishing, whale shark watching and light tackle saltwater fishing). However, do stay tuned as the real fireworks start when one combines (or rather contrasts) this scintillating experience with a walk to the glorious ruins of the legendary Mayan Civilization and the Maya Centre Village for its 12 self-guided trails, 400 square kilometers of a forest jaguar preserve and nearly 300 bird species.
The Belize Barrier Reef Reserve is nearly a thousand square kilometers wide coastal aggregation of atolls, sand cays, mangrove forests, lagoons and estuaries, besides being home to the largest reef system in the Northern Hemisphere. It lies at less than an hour’s ride from the coast of Placentia. The seafood here is simply delightful, but you can still top it by an astounding experience of admiring the nurse sharks, hammerhead sharks or Caribbean Reef Sharks as they swim past you in deeper waters.Laughing Bird Caye
Lying scenically off the coast of Placentia, the Laughing Bird Caye is an island or a mini-atoll with some superb facilities for protected snorkeling and swimming. A typical holiday here would consist of lying under a palm tree somewhere on its sprawling white sandy beach and admiring the atoll’s superb range of coral habitats and marine life. Those who’d prefer to jump-in the waters flaunting their diving gears would find reef kayaking and deep sea fishing nothing less than a perpetual delight.Seine Bight
The former dwelling point of the legendary race of Mayans and later an alpha-point of Amerindian cultural heritage, Seine Bight is a sleepy little village located less than 3 miles on the Placentia Peninsula. It is flanked by the Caribbean Sea and a lagoon on either side. You would be awestruck with a seemingly impossible conglomeration of history, culture and scenic beauty here- the last being a superset to some fine secluded swimming spots as well. Also of note here are some traditional homemade items like straw hats, woven baskets, dolls, paintings, wooden plaques and carvings of fish and snakes that are gleefully made and sold by the local people here.
