You can hire equipment for snorkeling, jet skiing, and parasailing, or enjoy a massage by the beach. If you're looking for simple relaxation, walk the long stretch of sand and enjoy the scenery.

    This beach is magnificent, waters crystal clear and calm, you can snorkel to appreciate its coral reefs and marine fauna. It is a beach very visited by tourists who arrive by cruise ship and holiday, so it can be quite busy some days, but still it is wonderful to be there. You can browse the entire beach in about 15 to 20 minutes from end to end and visit most of the restaurants and bars of the various hotels since they are open to the public. Prices of food and beverages are not as comfortable possibly since it is a very touristy area, drinks could cost above $3 and above $10 food. The best places to take a dip would be in the areas of beach between infinity Bay and Grand Roatan. Don't forget to wear your mask for snorkeling! Enjoy West Bay!

    The beach is small but beautiful. Without waves, it is like a natural swimming pool. THE water is crystal clear and when there is enough Sun takes a beautiful Turquoise color. You can see hundreds of fish on the shore, especially next to the reef at the end of the beach wall. Full snorkeling equipment rental costs $15 for all day. It includes snorkeling, legs of rat and vest. I recommend staying in this area and not in the West End. West End is cheaper but hotels are economic as of the backpacker type and the beach does not compare to West Bay Beach. Also in West End mosquitoes you devour in seconds while in West Bay Beach not me stung once.
