On our first night in Sarteneja we walked down to the beach to see the sun set over the water, not a common sight in east-facing Belize. But because Sarteneja is located on the west side of a point of land poking out into the Chetumal Bay, there is water to the west and gorgeous sunsets like this over the bay.
While it Sarteneja we stayed at the Backpacker’s Paradise, a very rustic hostel type place. It is run by a French couple and was a very unique experience for sure but we would recommend it to anyone looking to visit the area. It was relaxing and they had bikes available to rent which helped in exploring the area.
