Calling All Parents: Do the Kids a Favor and Take Them to Inky’s

by Megan Rodden

This is an important message to all the parents on the Placencia Peninsula: take your kids to Inky’s at Sirenian Bay Resort!  Do the kids, and yourself, a favor and take them to Inky’s for the day, for the afternoon, or even for an hour.  This place is the perfect family-friendly setting to share a couple of hours together and make a few happy memories.  Located midway along the peninsula, Inky’s is conveniently reached from both Maya Beach and Placencia Village.  The perfect day-destination for when your itinerary doesn’t include a caye trip or inland tour.  Inky’s is the top choice, kid-approved, recreation center on the peninsula, and here’s why you just have to check it out.

Miniature Golf- Major Fun

The primary attraction at Inky’s is their beautifully designed and impeccably landscaped 18-hole miniature golf course.  Mini golf is fun for all ages, and families especially love this wholesome activity.  A game of miniature golf always makes me nostalgic for my own childhood summer vacations and I’m so glad I get to share the thrill of the game with my own little one.  Awaken your competitive nature and keep score (I always do) or don’t and just have fun with it.  Play putt-putt by day or under the starlight at night; Inky’s is open until 9 p.m. every evening.

Refresh at the 19th Hole

The open-air, thatch-roof restaurant at Inky’s is the resort’s and recreation area’s primary hub.  Relax and refresh yourself with a cold beverage from the bar; freshly squeezed and natural juices are on the menu for minors, and adults can enjoy tropical cocktails crafted by hand.

Feeling peckish?  Not a problem!  The 19th Hole serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner sure to delight everyone in your party.  Offering traditional Belizean cuisine as well as American favorites and International dishes, the 19th Hole Restaurant at Inky’s caters to a wide range of tastes and is perfect for families.

Splash or Swing

Stay cool by the pool or play a bit of pickleball.  Inky’s newly constructed recreation area features a party palapa, locker rooms, pool, tennis, and pickleball courts.  Perfect for private parties or just dropping in for the day, Inky’s pool is also used for scuba discovery classes.  Little adventurers can register for the popular Bubble Makers Class. It’s a PADI-approved course that introduces kids to the aquatic sport in a safe environment under close supervision and instruction.  For fun above the waterline, try a round of tennis or pickleball.  Rental equipment is available if you don’t bring along your own rackets and court time can be reserved by the hour.  Each Sunday night Inky’s invites you to join them at their outdoor cinema for a movie screening and popcorn under the stars.

Inky’s offers fun for the whole family in a comely and comfortable setting.  With multiple family-friendly activities and a wide selection of menu options, Inky’s is the top spot to bring the kids for recreation on the peninsula.  Be sure to check their calendar of upcoming events for holiday happenings and special goings-on.
