Mahogany Bay is a resort area that Carnival Cruise Lines has developed on Roatan, strictly for the enjoyment of its cruise passengers.Of course there is the usual array of shops at the port, but I did notice some good prices at the Duty Free Shop there. There is a chair lift that will take you from the port to the... More

We traveled to Roatan on the Carnival Glory on August 20, 2014. Even if this beach is man made it is beautiful and free. You have to disembark early to get a chair. The site is very complete but too small. Bring your snorkel gear and go on the left side (end of the beach). Nice nature trail (don't take... More

Our cruise ship docked right next to Mahogany Bay. You could take a chair lift to get a bird's eye view but it is a very nice walk. I hear lots of birds and saw a green hummingbird. Lots of Lounging chairs, get there early to get one in the shade. We brought our own snorkeling gear and had a... More

I stopped here while cruising on the Carnival Glory and it was my favorite stop! The boat docks very close to the beach and we didn't have to be back on until about 5:30PM, which gave us time to board the boat for lunch and go back to the beach! The water is beautiful and clear and the sand was... More

This beach is okay if you enjoy a man made beach with tons of people and murky water and algae. Take the time to book an excursion before you take your cruise for this port.

This beach was very near to the port so getting there and back was a breeze. There are many activities to do on the beach. I wish that we could have seen some of the island, but the safety advisories changed my mind about that. The beach can get crowded, but it was clean, safe and convenient. The chair lift... More

We stopped here while on a cruise, and didn't find it to be anything too special. While the beach is very close to the port, it isn't the nicest of beaches, especially compared to some of the other stops on the cruise (Cozumel, Grand Cayman, etc), and it got super crowded within an hour. One thing that was cool about... More

During our trip, there was only one ship in port. We had reserved snorkeling gear and a clam shell. I highly recommend the snorkeling gear (they hold your ship card while you rent the gear). With a short walk down the pier, we were immersed in a reef and lots of tropical fish! On many occasions, the reefs are so... More

This is one of the most convenient ports to get to a beach. Most of my visits have come by way of Carnival Cruise Ship. The ships actually dock at this port within a short walk from the ship.Depart your ship early and take the time to walk down the beach a little way and this will result in a... More

I missed out on getting one of the packages to the beach at Mahogany Bay, but the desk told me just to walk on over - it is about a five minute walk. I didn't get a "Clamshell" with two chairs, but I got a free beach under the shade of lovely palms with a free chair. This is a... More
