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.
