  • Since all of the hotels are there the beach is very very clean. The hotel offers some tours through the best parts of the island. 
  • West Bay Beach is in my opinion the most beautiful of Roatan.Chaque merchant cleans his little piece and it's perfect, very clean. Of course, we must respect the prohibited places of bathing because there is the back and forth of water taxis and excursions yacht. It is the most popular beach of people who descend from cruise for a few hours. For snorkel fans, just to swim a few meters and you are in a huge aquarium very diverse! The best place for this sport is at the end of the beach, from the hotel Infinity to the end of the beach of the Gran Roatan.En 14 days Roatan, we made do with the snorkel has this place 12 times, with a chance to see new fish every opportunity. Leaving our personal in our bags back along the rocks, never problems, effects all people, tourists and locals are nice! The top of the snorkel for us.
