Seine Bight is a village on the resort peninsula of Placencia in Belize.

Get in[edit]

Either you fly in via Tropic Air or Maya Air (Placencia Airport) and then take a cab to Seine Bight (approx. 5 min.) or you take the bus. When you come from Belize City you will have to change busses in Dangriga (approx. 4-5 hours) or you rent a car and drive down.

The Placencia Peninsula Road has been paved already between Maya Beach and Placencia (July 2009). However the rest of the road, approx. 15 miles, is still unpaved but in good conditions. The paving will be done in the next year or so.

Get around[edit]

Seine Bight stretches a few miles along the peninsula. You can easily walk around, stroll on the beach or ride your bike. Car rental companies are at the Airport Placencia, 2 miles south of Seine Bight.

A new Everyday Supermarket (very day till 9pm) opened a few month ago. It is very clean, well stocked and the staff is extremely friendly. It is located just in the center of Seine Bight on the main road. There is also a Vegetable Shop and other very small grocery stores in Seine Bight. Visit also Lola´s Art to shop for your souvenirs. Lola is a painter and well recognized in Belize.

Eat[edit][add listing]

From a tourist perspective there are a few places which offer a very nice setting, excellent cuisine and great service. Eat at Danube, the Austrian Restaurant South of Seine Bight, at Nautical Inn, just north of the center or at Blue Crab Resort, half a mile North of the center.

A bit further North or South you will find resorts with excellent cuisine as well.

However there are a few local places or street vendors offering rice, beans and stew chicken or fish.

Visit also Goss Chocolate factory. Its chocolate is hand made from 100% organic grown cacao. Look out for the golden wrapped bars.

Try out Wamasa´s for a bitter and a Belikin and chat with the locals.

Sleep[edit][add listing]

In and around Seine Bight are a few excellent resorts located. No matter if you like high end luxury or simple and clean beach cabanas, you will find it here.
