My favorite place to relax on the beach just got better with this more centralized location next to the Armidillo. The conch ceviche and fritters were both on point. and the BBq grilled chicken pizza with caramalized onions and cilantro was better than I remembered...More

Pizza is good and affordable. Service is fast and the view is beautiful. You can go take pictures on the beach while waiting for your food or wait on the bar. They serve different alcoholic beverages at affordable price also.

There's a reason Driftwood is always mentioned as a favorite restaurant in Hopkins... the pizza is REALLY good! I never expected to find one of my all-time favorite pizzas in Belize... but I did. If you're in Hopkins, it's definitely worth the stop for lunch...More

We were told about the bar and drumming the bar had on Tuesdays. We went and were truly pleased. The drummers were great & being able to be outside listening & enjoying the Ocean Breeze was an enchanting evening

Recommended to us while staying in Hopkins this past November. I must say the drive at night made us a little nervous, going to the middle of nowhere/end of the road it seemed. Once we made the turn to the beach and saw other cars...More

One of the good things about Driftwood is that it is one of the few places in Hopkins where you can get food after 9PM. We did the bioluminescence tour and we didn't get back until close to that time and all of the establishments...More

Just opened about 6 months ago - serves pizza and pasta, has a bar, sits on the beach with some volleyball and games at times, cute decor and great owners - expats from Canada. Really good pizza, nice break from the local food if you need it.
