This man-made pool is right on the coast with swinging rope, etc. Good "beach" for the kids. Restaurant on-site. Easy to make half-day at the beach. There is a fee for admission.

This is definitely not a beach in the sense that it is man-made but it doesn't take away from the entertainment of it all. This is a great place for children and families. My 4 year old had a blast here. No complaints!

Do your research before going to Belize and don't take a tour that stops here! Ask questions if u do stop for beach time. Service was poor. DJ played really outdated music (which I did enjoy!). It's a longer trip out there with nothing to...More

Kukumba Beach is a man made VERY large water hole. I think the water may be mixed with chlorine although it was quite salty. There is a large slide, water trampoline, swing and tubes to play with. The beach had wooden and plastic chairs with...More

The kids loved swimming in this private lagoon. They had a nice water slide, the drop isn't as steep as some I've tried so it made it bearable for the kids. They had a Dj and an outdoor bar. And the restaurant attached was great....More

Took a cab from the port (cost about $5 per person for our group of six people) to this fun man-made beach. I did not take part in the "water park" portion of the park, but instead grabbed a couple buckets of Belize beer and...More

Yes, this is a man made beach that looks like a giant swim hole with a huge slide. The slide is not wheelchair accessible. However the restrooms and eats are!
