Placencia has the best beaches in Belize.
At 3 PM every day there is this breeze that brings in some seaweed. You can always find an area where there is no seaweed, of course.
The advantage of Placencia is that it is pure sand beach. The bottom of the sea is sand. There is no coral that would scratch your feet. It’s like a pool. If you go so San Pedro (Ambergris Caye) or to Caye Caulker, the color of the sea there is what you see on the magazines, but on the other hand, there is no access to the beach because there is erosion. The entire island is a seawall. You cannot just go into the sea like you can in Placencia. I hope Placencia Village will stay that way where there is sand and a real beach. You can lay down on the sand or walk on the sand and you will see that the water is clear. The water in Placencia is dark green and not blue like what you see in other places in the Caribbean.
The nice beaches are in Placencia Village. All others have seaweed and if you go further north, you will see that the sand is brown and thinner. So the color of the sea is more brown and the when you walk on it, it has a muddy feel to it because the sand is too thin. It is clean but visually it looks different compared to Placencia where the sand is like the sand in Marseille, France, where I come from. The beach is made of sand and the sea has tiny waves.
