Bannister Island, Belize City

(1.9/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
Soak up the sun or relax with a cold drink at Bannister Island, a small private island which accommodates a restaurant serving authentic Belizean food. Children can enjoy the shallow waters to swim in, a touch tank of starfish to examine, and a playground. Other activities include taking a trip onto the water in a rented kayak. Consider bringing footwear for the water as the manmade beach can be quite rough. Make Bannister Island part of your personalized Belize City itinerary using our Belize City trip itinerary builder.
