    Fun for people watching
    Eat at the Shak and watch people and have delicious food. We ate at the Shak three times in five days because it was so good. Went scuba, snorkel, and jungle adventure from the harbor pier.

    Great trip.
    We decided to come to this village than rather step in the port of Belize. We had fruit shakes at one small restaurant before walking around the village. We purchased some woven baskets which were half price from the street vendors rather that the stores. People very friendly here. Some cafes closed early.

On the pier there are a few vendors and some tour operators..
On the day we were there, it was slow. A cruise ship had just left the day before. We were there to see the fisherman’s day catch but were disappointed as we had arrived late and the fish were all gone.

This beach was by far the best one in Placencia. The pier was clean and well maintained. Beach was pristine.

Was in Palencia, Belize for the day, off of the NCL BREAKAWAY. Several of the vendors had carved items, ie: turtles, etc to purchase and was able to haggle for prices. At one of the little stores on the pier was able to purchase Marie Sharps hot sauce, which was great. People on pier very friendly and helpful.

The beach by the pier is great, the water is clear, there are shade trees and picnic tables - We bought fresh lobster tails from a local fisherman to cook, delicious!

Fun place to walk about & be sure to walk on the “boardwalk” between all the little shops & restaurants. Fun to look in the shops and there are two beachfront bars that have live music. A cool breeze blowing, listening to music, views of the beach, best of vibes.

This is a fun place to visit after dark as the light at the end of the pier attracts small fish and insects. These small fish and insects have attracted a large school of tarpon to swarm the area and feed. Something to do in the evening to go for a walk after dinner and watch the big fish.

We loved this little beach adjacent to the pier, it is kind of “around the Horn” of the peninsula so, it is protected from the heavy wind, waves and seaweed. When the conditions are not right for swimming on the beach, in front of your resort or favorite restaurant, this is the place to be for swimming or floating. The beach, water and sands are very clean an inviting. Bring your own drinks or snacks or there are food/drink options just steps away. (Like the “Shack” Restaurant.)
