Go for a walk, bike ride or drive to Brig Bay for the most local activity. Fruit/veggie stands, the very busy wharf (also where you catch the panga to Little Corn Island), as well as clothes shopping, hardware stores, liquor store, and great economical restaurants!
Got your kids with you on vacation? Make sure to visit Parque Rodrigo Campbell, aka “the kids park” in South End. There are lots of options for the adults to sit in the sun or the shade while the kids play. There's also free wifi!

They offer certifications and always come back from their dives with great photos and fun stories!
There might not be a better way to take in the Southwest Bay sunsets than enjoying the views from the new Bit Coin Island Floating Bar.

Little Corn Island's charm and character will change your world.
Seriously. It's magical here.
Many places around Big Corn Island rent motorbikes, as well as scooters, golf carts and bicycles too! It's a great way to see the island on your own schedule. (You can't do this on Little Corn Island since there are no motorized vehicles allowed.)
While we won't make the exotic magazines with our wildlife, our birds are pretty unique.
This one's name is Ani :) as in a Smooth Billed Ani, and these birds make a lovely little whistling noise.
We also have Great Grackles, which are large blackbirds with a long narrow beak and loud alarm system that sounds like a wind-up toy!
Down at the wharf there's always something to see, even if it's just a glimpse of the gorgeous harbour.
Relaxing massages and alcohol-free mocktails are available at Sea Star Spa Dry Resort. There are very few "dry" resorts in all of the Caribbean and this one on Big Corn Island (South End, Long Bay Beach) is sure to impress!
Bring your swim suit because you'll want to take a dip in their incredible pool, too!
Sundays are the only day off for most islanders, and they know how to do Sunday Funday right! Usually games start around 8am and the music is cranked up, food and drinks are sold ALL DAY LONG and you can watch the games till the sun goes down.
The big show on Big Corn is usually Saturday nights, often with teams coming in from Little Corn as well as the mainland too!
It's definitely a great place to hang out at for the evening.
It's not just their name - they often get to see and swim with wild dolphins, as well as sea turtles, and other caribbean marine life including reef sharks & hammerheads!
These guys pack each trip with fun, education, and fish. They have a great time on and off the water, so come for some fishing or just stop in for a beer and say hi!
Aqua Boy starts their tour at either at 6:00 a.m. or at 2:00 p.m. and trips last about 3 hours. They go for Barracuda, Kingfish, Snapper, Jackfish and the local guides will make sure you have a memorable time out on the water!
The highest point on Big Corn Island is Mount Pleasant, and is best done in early morning when it's cool out and you can watch the sunrise. It only takes about 20 minutes to walk to the top but is not an easy stroll!
How to get there:
Across from Casa Canada is a cobblestone road heading up the hill. Walk until you reach the kids' school, then keep right and walk the rest of the path all the way to the top!
The Soul of the World is located on the 2nd highest point of the island, in the center of Quinn Hill’s playground, with a beautiful panoramic view of the sea and jungle canopy.
Commonly known by the locals as “the pyramid," the sculpture was built in 2006 by the Spanish sculptor Rafael Trénor and his team. It represents the corner of a cube that is (theoretically) positioned inside the sphere of the Earth. After various investigations and analyses, the team found that Big Corn Island was one of only eight points in the world that connected the corners of the inner cube to land. Isn’t that incredible?
In case you didn't think Little Corn Island was cool enough as it is, they are now saving endangered sea turtles too.
Life doesn't get much better than this! Lounging in a hammock overlooking the caribbean ocean is something you will never tire of.
