Bird Island, just 20 minutes away from the village of Placencia, Belize, is a small island inside a coral-reef. Its protected beautiful waters is what makes it unique. Its total privacy is what makes it special. It has been featured in many newspapers and publications, and was the opening act in Airbnb's recent 'Love This, Live There' ad campaign.
The central theme of Bird Island is a self-catering Robinson Crusoe type of adventure, yet with all the comforts, where one could get to do their own thing in total privacy. We offer Bird Island at an exceptional price for an experience best suited for the self-sufficient and resourceful in nature who is not expecting a 5-star resort, but a truly unique experience. Minimum stay is 4 days, maximum 7 days. As of Spring 2017, it can accommodate four (4) people comfortably, (6) depending on group composition.
All one has to bring is their own food such as meats, vegetables and drinks; the kitchen is well stocked with everything else. Transportation from Placencia to and from island is included. Some fishing equipment is on the island; as to snorkeling equipment though there is some on the island, it is best to bring your own and can be rented locally. There are kayaks and float tubes in the island. Also a local phone, WiFi, and BBQ and many other amenities.
The island has a new main house at one end and a separate cabana on the other. It is surrounded by wadable, extremely shallow crystal-clear waters; you can snorkel, swim, wade or take the kayaks and cruise the entire nearly mile-long atoll or nearby islands.
It is a perfect setting for either a romantic get-away for a couple, a family or a group of friends. The island also tend to have exceptional weather, always cool when mainland starts to become hot and humid by early April. You will rarely see any of the notorious sand flies or mosquitoes in Bird Island found in the mainland, it was hand-filled with fine river sand to achieve that objective.
Want to get-away from it all, even for the shortest of time, with your love one or group of friends, then this is the place. Want to go swimming or snorkeling in crystal clear water in a beautiful unspoiled reef, you will be surrounded by one. Want to grab a fishing rod and cast to cruising feeding fish, the atoll around the island is considered one of the best for it.
Spending time at Bird Island, even for the shortest of time, you will feel like you have done something special.
