A narrow strip of golden sand beaches measuring just half a mile wide and 16 miles long, the Placencia Peninsula is well-suited for exploration by golf cart. Although there are a few places where you can drive a car in Placencia, the majority of the peninsula is off-limits to automobiles, making golf carts the perfect mode of transportation to get around.
Barefoot Rentals and Services, a locally-owned company based in southeastern Belize, has a large number of golf carts for rent.
What Can I Do or See in Placencia With a Golf Cart?
You can explore Placencia Village, holder of a title in the Guinness Book of World Record for the smallest “main street” on the planet, actually a four-foot wide sidewalk. The village is famous for its colorful street murals, boutique shops and cafes, and annual arts festival.
With a golf cart, you can also stop and enjoy homecooked meals at restaurants like Wendy’s Creole or enjoy a cup of coffee at Brewed Awakening. You can also enjoy adult drinks at popular watering holes like the Tipsy Tuna and the Barefoot Bar. Having a golf cart is also a great way to enjoy all the activities during the annual Lobsterfest.
Heading north from Placencia Village, you can stop to see places like the beautiful Turtle Inn, designed and owned by Hollywood director Francis Ford Coppola. You can then continue and stop for a break at the tiny Placencia airstrip that receives several flights a day from Belize City.
Continuing, you can stop at the Garifuna village of Seine Bight to enjoy traditional foods, music, drumming, and dances. Also in Seine Bight is Lola’s Art gallery.
