The 16 mile long Placencia peninsula is home to 3 communities- Maya Beach, Seine Bight and Placencia Village. The village itself is home to the narrowest street in the world according to “Guinness World Book of Records” – the placencia sidewalk .Lobsterfest is a popular celebration in June and the Placencia Sidewalk Arts Festival takes place in February.
April through June see the arrival of the magnificent whale shark and diving or snorkeling with them is an adrenaline rush not to be missed.
Placencia is a paradise for the nature lover in you, start by exploring the beauty of the abundance of plants and flowers, and the birds, butterflies, and iguanas they attract throughout the peninsula.
Kayak the mangroves in the tranquil lagoon and perhaps you will be lucky enough to spot the manatees that live here.
If your pleasure is a more leisurely trip around the uncrowded waters, there are sailing options from catamarans available with crew, to private sailboats for day sailing or overnights, complete with captain and catering.
