Saxacalli Village

Saxacalli Village – Along the Essequibo River.

Saxacalli, located on the west bank of the Essequibo River some 25 miles (40 km) south of Parika at 6°35′N 58°37′W Coordinates: 6°35′N 58°37′W, was originally an Arawak community. Its present population of about 250 reflects Guyana’s multi-ethnicity. Life in Saxacalli is based on small-scale logging, farming and some tourism, mainly from the use of the Saxacalli beach by day-tour operators. The village is not accessible by road, nor does it have a source of electricity.

Saxacalli is an Arawak word for Kingfisher.

This community is reputed to have one of the best inland beaches in Guyana.
Happy to say I”ve been there and love it.
