“Let’s go to Secret Beach!” A response of “yes” often follows. After all, who wouldn’t want to spend a day soaking up the sun at one of the island’s top beaches? Secret Beach, located 6.5 miles north of San Pedro Town on Ambergris Caye, has become a popular destination for locals and visitors. The hour-long drive via golf cart from San Pedro Town is a memorable part of your day at the beach. And there’s no better place to enjoy the island time vibes than at Maruba Beach Klub, located at the entrance of Secret Beach.
Maruba Beach Klub is a favorite spot for many, offering cool vibes, fantastic food, and some of the best cocktails. But perhaps the best part of it all is the crystal-clear water, perfect for a day of endless beach fun.
To find Maruba Beach Klub, look for the letter “M,” their signature symbol. When you arrive, one of their attentive servers will guide you to the beach paradise. With an emphasis on relaxation, Maruba provides various seating options, including comfortable sofa loungers, table seating, and plenty of beach chairs and in-water tables. Once you’ve settled in, it’s time to indulge your taste buds and quench your thirst!
If you arrive early, don’t worry; Maruba serves a full breakfast menu all day! Their stuffed fry jacks are a crispy and filling delight. Pair them with their signature deluxe Bloody Mary, which comes with a delicious bacon and blackened shrimp skewer, and you have the perfect breakfast or brunch combo.
Be sure to try their Maruba Punch or Champagne Sorbet served with a split of Freixenet and fresh frozen sorbet. Their Aperol spritz is also a refreshing treat. You can also ask for your drinks to be OVER-sized, which is excellent for two or more friends to enjoy.

For lunch, the menu offers classic dishes like a juicy burger, or you can opt for healthier options and enjoy one of their vegan dishes. The shrimp spring rolls are a favorite, offering a light and fresh bite.
And with another cocktail in hand, enjoy the shallow water as you bury your toes in the sand with no worry in the world.

Are you looking for an extra treat? Why not rent a private boat and quickly tour Secret Beach? Just ask your servers, and they will make the arrangements. Cruise with drinks in hand and enjoy all the beautiful scenery that Ambergris Caye offers!
Maruba also offers a full-service spa overlooking the stunning Caribbean seascape for those seeking relaxation. Treat yourself to a deep tissue, Swedish, Aroma, Maruba Mood Mud massage, or even a Maruba Molasses scrub to refresh your soul, body, and mind.
Maruba Beach Klub is open daily from 9 AM until 5 PM. They can arrange transport via land or boat if you prefer not to drive there via golf cart. Maruba also caters to birthday parties and large group events, but reservations are recommended. You can find them on Facebook @marubabeachklub or call 610-3779.
