Great location right on the beach! We had the Mediteranean pizza w/ chicken, and it was delicious. Quiet and peaceful spot, about as far north as you can go on the Hopkins beach.

Sincerely excellent pizza! It was a little too busy in the evening for our taste, so we returned the next day for lunch. Tips: This place is located on the **Very** far north end of the hopkins beach. Rent a bike or drive... I think it would be a long walk. Tips: They are closed on Wednesday.

Tuesday nights at Driftwood Pizza are not to be missed! Denise has created the perfect place to enjoy Garifuna Drumming and good, reasonably priced food. We enjoyed wings, fries, fish tacos and ice cold Beliken beer for under $20.00 US. Went back on Thursday for pizza and wasn't disappointed. Definitely, a place to try if you're in Hopkins, Belize.

This was our first stop after checking into our place in Hopkins. While it wasn't the easiest to find we finally did get to the delightful spot on the beach. There were tons of games (board and lawn games) and I taught my mom how to play horse balls as we waited for our two large pizzas. When the pizzas... More

We ate here twice, both times had pizza, it was excellent. The service was very good, and the Tuesday night jamb session was lots of fun.

Go on a Tuesday to check out the live local band. Reasonably priced drinks and amazing tacos. Pizza is just alright, but better than some other local places. Go for the atmosphere.

Driftwood is in the northern most part of the old Hopkins area. The service is great and the beers are cheap. They have a volleyball net and plenty of seating to enjoy a cold beer. The Canadian owner is really nice and can make some great food (we brought our fresh caught seafood in)

The Hawaiian pizza was very good and reasonably priced. Great banana colada too if you can get it. Locals and visitors both had high reviews for this place.
