Miserable all Night
Aug 2021 • Friends
Visited Aurora's at Secret Beach for the day in April, had a great day trip and decided to bring friends for Labor Day week and stay at the cabanas.....Bad Idea!! No air conditioning in the cabanas, and the temperature never dropped below 90 degrees, even at night. Small fans were in each cabana which tripped the power 3-4 times through the night. Owner totally non-responsive. Aurora Restaurant owners, Aurora and Evan, were gracious hosts and really tried to help, but what could they do? Their food and hospitality were great! Evan got up throughout the night to turn on the generator. We left for Grand Baymen the next day and had a fantastic time. Still no response from the owners at this point. No apology. No willingness to talk. No offer of a partial refund....nothing! Run fast Aurora before the Secret Beach owners ruin your reputation any further. (Tried to upload a photo but all pics too large) Nice day trip, but not a good idea for people who like to be cool at night and have power.

This beach has tables in the shallow water and the waiters come out and serve you in the water. Super bomb!

Our day at the beach...!
Jul 2021
It was just fun. The service was excellent. The water was inviting and it was a great way to spend an afternoon. We arrived and walked around a bit to get our bearings and found a comfortable spot where chase lounge chairs were inches from the water. Our server helped us settle in suggested a couple of Mango Habanero Margaritas, which were absolutely delicious. we then went for a dip in the bay and had several nice conversations with other guests/tourists. Several people either had tables in the water or floating tables that were out some distance into the water. They played good music with a mostly Reg/Carib vibe and took exceptional care of their guests.

Well Worth the Drive

A great atmosphere, good food, inexpensive drinks. What else could anyone ask for? Laidback, helpful, and friendly folks. Definitely worth the drive.

Secret Beach is no Secret, but it's fun
Jun 2021 • Family
What a wonderfully, fun place to play. The beach bar we chose is on the right and has a waterpark and volleyball. It is callled "Happy Island", but I didn't see a sign saying that until we were leaving. You have to pay to rent a life jacket and everyone on the water slides must wear one. It is $10 Belizean. There are beach chairs, and tables. Some tables are even set up in the water. Food and drinks are good and service is exceptional, but pricey. You can fish off a nearby pier. I brought my snorkeling gear and swam between 2 piers. (there is a really cool little cave, blue hole just off shore)
Some people drive there in their golf cart. So if you already have one rented, do that. We hired a driver for the day and he hung out until we were ready to leave. Ask around to find deals.

Not so secret
Jun 2021 • Solo
So everyone knows about the "secret" beach😂. Definitely worth the trek to get there lol. Yes, it's bumpy, but that's why it's an adventure!! Very lively atmosphere and friendly service. Water is very calm on this side of the island.

LEAVE BEFORE SUNSET! The mosquitos will attack!!

Worth a visit!
Jul 2021 • Couples
Water was spectacular! Absolutely worth visiting. Some things to know:
First. This is very much a party scene. We were there from 10 am to 2 pm and there already heavy drinking. No one was out of control but I imagine it gets wilder as the day goes on. Quite fun if you are up for it but just be aware.
Second. Getting there takes a while. You'll need to get a golf cart and take the rugged roads. We stopped for coconut water along the way, which we had to drink quickly because it spilled everywhere while driving.
Third. There are several "clubs" on the Secret Beach. As soon as you arrive, they are all enticing you to sit with them. However, getting people seated was apparently the priority because we struggled to get service during our entire time there. It also took about 30 minutes to tab out.
All that said, it was totally worth the visit and no trip to ambergris would be complete if you don't visit Secret Beach.

Worth it!
Jun 2021
The best way to go around San Pedro is definitely by golf cart, and Secret Beach is about 1 hour outside of the town. When you hit the roundabout, you just keep going straight on the main road and can follow the green M's. We were told that it is not necessary to get there until 11:30/noon, which was absolutely correct. We were some of the first ones there and secured great seats on the beach and a table in the water (free to use). An extra little fact is that most of the locals have Sunday off (it's definitely the slowest day around town), so that's when you will see the most locals travel to secret beach. You will probably also see people asking for rides out there, and it is very safe to drive locals out there since some locals don't own any form of transportation because it's expensive. We went straight to Happy Island, which was the most popular and loudest in the stretch of six bars. When you drive down the dirt road, there are three straight at the end of the road and three if you turn left a little before the end following the signs to "Blue Bayou." Every bar has a different vibe, so whatever you're feeling is an option out there (relaxed vs. party vs. both). If you have your own snorkel equipment, you can bring it to secret beach and snorkel to see fish at any place along the beach. Everything closes around 6pm because the mosquitos get bad around dusk. Highly recommend spending the day there!
