Can anyone comment on the quality of the beaches on AC? How do they compare to other Carribean islands? Are they very crowded, secluded, size, shade etc. Are there any laws that prohibit topless sunbathing or (dare I ask) descrete nude sunbathing? Any info. would be great. Currently trying to find an alternative to the usual Carribean island trip - but gotta have those beaches! Thanks!

I think you might find what you are looking for at the Northern end of AC.

I think it depends on which Caribbean islands you're comparing the beach to. I haven't been to the islands that are considered to have the best beaches, mostly because they're also relatively flat and arid. I much prefer the islands with more greenery, usually volcanic in origin.

I spent most of my time within a mile or so of town and haven't seen any topless sunbathing. I'm sure the further north or south you go, the easier it would be to get away from people.

There aren't any waves to speak of on Ambergris. The waves break on the reef. So, there's sea grass. A turn off for some.

There are no real beaches in San Pedro...or Belize. I am a total beach person...been all over the Caribbean and I love the beach. I was disappointed the first day I was here but Belize has so many other things...beautiful water, docks, pools, people, food...that I didn't even notice. Loved it so much I moved here. And don't miss the beach at all. Don't let it dissuade you...
