Playa Maya 

Playa Maya is a very small and quiet coastal community on the Placencia peninsula, which consists of a long and clean strip of sand, beach chairs, wooden docks that stand out in the sea and hammocks hanging between palm trees. Visitors who come here do so to relax, sunbathe and eat fresh seafood in one of the few beachfront restaurants. Of the three beach towns on the Placencia peninsula, Maya beach is the most serene.
 
Maya Beach has few beachfront hotels, guest houses and comfortable cabins to choose from. There is not much nightlife, but there are many outdoor activities to do. A fun way to explore the area is by kayak or by bicycle and many of the hotels have these available for rent.

Snorkeling off the coast is possible, but wind and waves can result in poor visibility right on the shore. If you want to book snorkeling or diving excursions in the Gladden Spit & Silk Caye Marine Reserve or in the Cayo Pájaro Smiling National Park, where there is more abundance of marine life, you can do so through your hotel. However, most tour operators are located further south of the Placencia Peninsula.
 
The Placencia Peninsula is 130 miles (209 km) south of Belize City. The road was recently renovated in 2008 and is currently in decent condition. It is the first coastal town to be found when driving south of the Peninsula. This also means that it is a good place to stay if you are interested in exploring some of the sites of interest in the Mayan Mountains, including the Cockscomb nature reserve and some of the southern Mayan ruins. For those who prefer to fly, there is a national airport 6 miles (10 km) to the south, near Placencia village, and flights depart daily from Belize City and other parts of the country.
