Golden sands, azure waters. Sun-seekers are transported to Belize City’s very own tropical, postcard paradise with Kukumba Beach—an urban beach hugged by the Caribbean Sea! Back in the 1950s, a Florida farmer and trader grew vegetables—including cucumbers—in Belize on this plot of land before exporting to the USA in the winter months. Originally used as a port to package and load vessels bound stateside, the beach became synonymous with cucumbers and ultimately became colloquially known as Kukumba Beach, which is the phonetic pronunciation of ‘cucumber’ in Belizean Creole. 

Today, it’s a hotspot for fun with a slew of beach activities on genuine coral sands and a 1 million-gallon saltwater pool, which also doubles as a rental space for events. Go barefoot and rally up a game of cornhole or beach volleyball; grab a cocktail or bucket of Belikin Beer from the onsite beach bar, Wata Hole; catch some air from our Tarzan rope swing; claim your thatched palapa; or take the plunge on The Slippery Conch, an 80-foot-long waterslide that rises 50 feet above Kukumba Beach.
