Seine Bight is a village on the Placencia Peninsula located in the Stann Creek District of Belize. It is located 2 and a half miles south of Maya Beach Village and North of the village of Placencia[1]. This small village has roughly 1,000 inhabitants, mostly Garifuna people who subsist on fishing, hunting, and homegrown vegetables.[2] The early settlers named their village for their favored fishing tackle, Seine fishing and a bight, a bend or curve in a coastline.[3]
