Have you been to Secret Beach lately? If you have not, make sure to go this weekend! Thanks to the Belize Tourism Board, Hon. Manuel Heredia Jr. and the San Pedro Town Council, the road to Secret Beach has been repaired! The bumpy road is gone and now you can reach Secret Beach quicker and no back pain....perfect for a weekend of fun and relaxation with friends and family.

BTB joins San Pedro Town Council and Ministry of Works to enhance Secret Beach access road

BTB joins San Pedro Town Council and Ministry of Works to enhance Secret Beach access road Belize City, Monday, 25th June, 2018: In an effort to further develop and promote the sun and beach tourism product and increasing visitors’ experience, the Belize Tourism Board in collaboration with San Pedro Town Council and Ministry of Works, has implemented a project resulting in the resurfacing of 3.5 miles of road leading to Secret Beach in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye.

The completion of this project has cut the road time travel by half allowing more visitors accessibility with an enjoyable ride. As part of the project, which included the installation of road signs, BTB provided the fill material, the San Pedro Town Council provided fuel and the Ministry of Works supplied the machinery and labor.

San Pedro is the most visited destination in Belize with 181,460 guests vacationing in 2017 alone. Secret Beach has quietly evolved into a preferred sun and beach hub approximately 1 hour from San Pedro town where locals and guests can access the area via golf carts, taxis and bicycles. The Secret Beach is not so secret anymore; receiving hundreds of people enjoying its crystal-clear waters daily. The demand increase is attributed to growth in room stock on the north of the island.

The road project falls within the scope of the Belize’s National Sustainable Tourism Master Plan, which calls for the implementation of product development programs to cover specific projects to improve accessibility.

The road venture provided a unique opportunity to improve the much-needed road access at a very low cost and at a time when Belize continues to attract numerous visitors as a unique, Curious Destination.

Prior to the project, a trip to the Secret Beach area would take close to an hour due to the deteriorated roads. After improvements, the time of travel has been cut by half, allowing and encouraging more visitors to drive to that beach area dotted with restaurants and beach bars.

Mayor Daniel Guerrero stated that the improvement of the road will increase the flow of traffic to that area and that its enhancement was a must, given the popularity of Secret Beach. He indicated that in order to protect the area from any potential crime, there are plans to set a security/police booth at the detour that leads to Secret Beach. This is in an effort to have a record of who accesses the area via the road. He did not set a timeline.

According to the BTB, Ambergris Caye is the most visited destination in Belize, with 181,460 guests vacationing in 2017 alone. Secret Beach has rapidly evolved into a preferred sun and beach hub north of San Pedro Town, and accessed by both residents and visitors. The renovation of the Secret Beach road falls within the portfolio of Belize’s National Sustainable Tourism Master Plan, with the responsibility for the implementation of product development programs and improving their accessibility. The three institutions involved in the road venture encourage visitors to visit Secret Beach and to drive safely.

As Belize continues to attract more international visitors, the road project was characterized as a unique opportunity to improve the much-needed road access at a very low cost.

Seems that the materials and funds spent would have been used much more wisely on the road south or the back streets of San Pedro where residents and tourists travel daily.
