My husband likes the stout better, so you can always give that a try. There's another Belizean beer, can't think of the name of it, but you'll find it when you get there. You can give that a try. If any one of your party, Wine De Vine has nice things, good prices, and great cheeses and pate to go with it. Have fun!

Ramons does have a seawall on the South side but the North side is pure sand (shared with The Palms) and is well protected between 2 docks. Seagrass is an issue but it's what stops the beaches from being eroded and requiring seawalls. It doesn't bite and if you're swimming I assume you keep your feet of the bottom. The Boca del Rio area north of town has a couple of nice "public" beaches (Wet Willy's Northwards). I believe the first 60' of all waterfront is "Queens Land" and is therefore public land (I'm open to corrections if I'm wrong).

You can walk/stroll North and South.
The 2nd time we were there we stayed at a home just South of JE. We walked South to the ferry, jumped on, then walked to Ramones. (we could have gone further but we were on a delivery mission at the time) wink
When we ventured North from the home we stayed, we made it to a home where the owners had placed drifted/lost shoes from the sea to line the walking path. TOOO COOOL was that! We actually stopped there to find a shoe for our eldest that might fit. (I think one of her shoes had broken and she was a whining. lol Could not find one big enough for her though...) we only walked a bit further then returned. You MUST bring water with you on these walks as well!!!
Our last trip we stayed at Caribe Island, South of town. We walked to town and further (North)pretty much everyday. We did do the walk South of Caribe too, and stopped when we hit the mangroves. Coulda went further if we wished I think, but wanted to do the fishin and hammock thing so turned around. WATER is a must when on these walking trips! :rolleyes: Trust me here!
Have a GREAT trip, don't forget to tell us all about it upon your return!

As others have made clear you can walk the beaches as far as you want -this is because the first, I think, 20-25 feet of beach cannot be private i.e. beach front owners MUST legally allow public access.

I believe this first 20 -25 feet is referred to as the Queen's beach (given Belize was a British colony in the past). Marty may be able to confirm ths is correct. laugh

yes, walking the beach is a time honored tradition!

wouldn't be ambergris without that walk home at night.....

we swim all over, off any pier in sight. many hotels have a section of beach that they clear and make nicer for swimming. but some places the bottom is soft, and squishy for walking. one can still in those places lay in the water and cool off. and there are plenty of places that have a nice tended beach.

many piers have a turtle-grass cleared area off of them for swimming. no shortage of ways to get wet.
