Once you arrive into Belize City International Airport your stress-free vacation begins. Our guides in Belize will pick you up and transfer you to the dock where our boat departs for our island every Saturday and Wednesday. Upon arrival your bags are taken to your cabana while you sip on a refreshing cocktail and briefed on your stay by our dynamic island manager. After the briefing is complete, get settled in your cabana and head over to our Palapa Restaurant where you will be greeted by our incredible staff and served exquisitely-prepared Belizean cuisine for a delicious dinner. Here is where you and other guests will become fast friends as you each share stories of your days’ adventures. Breakfast and lunch are served buffet-style in a casual atmosphere. Happy Hour each evening, bonfires, karaoke, Caribbean Night or a spontaneous game of darts add to the uniqueness of Blackbird. At night don’t forget to look up to the sky as you exit the restaurant and be amazed at the millions of stars that surround you, or perhaps you will be greeted by the moon rising up from the horizon.
3 daily dives and 2 daily snorkel trips are offered at Blackbird. Our professional crew of dive masters and snorkel guides will take you to their pick of over 70 sites which are mere minutes from our shores. We are the closest resort to Lighthouse Reef where the Blue Hole and Half Moon Caye is located. Simply a must-see for divers and snorkelers alike! Abundant, bountiful, vibrant and diverse sea life exists in our virtually untouched seas, which makes for an amazing encounter that is awe-inspiring. The beauty and charm of our resort is the ability to mix and match your activities so you can set the pace. Try some kayaking, paddle-boarding, beach volleyball or relax and soak up the sun at our infinity pool overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Read a book in the hammock of your private screened-in porch while a gentle sea breeze kisses your face. Grab a snack or a cocktail at our friendly and fun hang-out, the High Tide Bar and be ready to do it all over again the next day. It’s your choice, it’s your vacation.
