The keys to Island House's successful formula are flexibility and a
Caribbean attitude. Because of the small size and restricted
number of guests, the activities agenda can be customized for the
group or individual. The relaxed, unstructured approach allows
you to do as much, or as little as you would like. Island House is
also a truly "kid friendly" resort which caters to the needs of
families and can provide childcare upon your request.
Swimming / Snorkeling
Dive off the dock into the beautiful Caribbean. The water is warm
and clear year-round, and abundant sea life awaits your discovery.
There are beautiful coral heads an easy swim from the dock, and
the over-the-water bar is ready for you following your swim.
Sea Kayaks are available and free to our guests. The beautiful
Michael Rock beach is a short paddle away. All directions afford
beautiful scenery and easy, protected paddling within the barrier
reef. Whether exploring for a few minutes or all day, there are
plenty of destinations to choose from.
Island House boasts some of the island's most spectacular hiking
opportunities. Guanaja's most beautiful waterfall is located up an
incredible jungle trail, half an hour from the resort. The small
Caribbean fishing village of Mangrove Bight is approximately an
hour's walk down the beach. Numerous trails take you to the upper
reaches of the island, or for the more serious, all the way to the top
- a climb of 1,400 feet!
A trip to the thriving island community of Bonacca is always a treat, as is a day of sightseeing and cultural immersion with Bo. Some folks find that the best thing to do is simply nothing at all!
