  • Perfect beach for snorkeling! Several sellers, if you're not interested you say no and they continue on their way.

  • A lovely beach but full of boats ready to carry tourists around and then a great smell of fuel if they continue so soon will be a total disaster ...

  • This is the best beach I have ever been to! Great for activities and family; it is like a big swimming pool. The snorkelling and diving is exceptional! Bliss² condo ( by the mall) was a great stay!
  • Love the park and beach Cory was the best guide for snorkeling I ever had,went on the Norwegian Escape october 1 2017.
  • Beautiful beach with white sand and clear sea. You can also watch the colorful fish swimming next to you.
  • Roatan Bay, Honduras is a great port for DIY shore excursions. Here, you can take local transportation to one of the most gorgeous beaches in the world with some of the best snorkeling, West Bay Beach. Thankfully we found out how to avoid the crowds too!
  • Love the West Bay Beach, the hotels are like a minute walk from your room to the beach and they're clean, clear, have white sand and the water feel great, you can walk all around the beach with no issues, plenty of restaurants and bars, the local people are great. I've been to a lot of tropical beaches but what separates this one is that If you want to disconnect and just relax without no one breathing down your neck then this is your beach, we walked on the beach at sunrise and we had no issues at all, I suggest you go to the West Bay Beach area, you'll thank me, I promise.
