Old Belize, The cucumber Beach Marina, and of course Cucumber Beach itself resides on a patch of coast of Belize City unofficially designated as “Cucumber Beach”. This little paradise has an intriguing history. Around the mid 50′s, a Florida vegetable farmer came to Belize with the intention of growing vegetables (among them cucumbers) and exporting them to the U.S.A. in the winter months. He set up farms around the village of Burrell Boom and used this port to package and load vessels bound for the U.S.A., hence the name Cucumber Beach.
Rising 50 feet from the heart of Cucumber Beach is the 90 foot-long water fall which will have you screaming in delight as you tunnel your way into the Caribbean Sea.
