Baron Bliss Lighthouse, Belize City

3.2
Baron Bliss Lighthouse is a lighthouse in Belize City. Established in 1885, it has a focal plane of 16 m (52 ft) and is painted white and red. It is named after one of Belize's greatest benefactors, Baron Bliss, who is known to have never actually set foot on Belizean shores but was impressed with the people's warm hospitality. He was a sailor and fisherman who traveled the world aboard his yacht the "Sea King". On March 9, 1926, Baron Bliss died leaving instructions that he be buried in a granite tomb near the sea, enclosed with an iron fence with a lighthouse built nearby. This is why this monument was constructed (in remembrance of him) and also at the location where it stands today.
The lighthouse, among its main purpose of serving as a traffic warning for boats travelling nearby, has also been used for advertisement purposes as well. It is featured on one of Belikin's most popular alcoholic beverage named "The Lighthouse lager". This in return has placed the lighthouse image on billboards, coasters, cups, mugs and other promotional items around the country of Belize. It is also a major tourist attraction in Belize when it comes to sight seeing and it was listed at #20 of top 53 things to do in Belize on tripadvisor website.

  • One of Belize' s most historic land site! A true beauty placed at the very edge of our land mass. Placed for the captain's whom would be lost at sea, a land mark to help guide them home. Named after a great man Baron Bliss. Whom helped in the development of Belize.
