The property is unique to Roatan. Just off the main road to a private beach area. This area is part of the Roatan Marine Park preserve. The reef system parallels the white sand beach of Sandy Bay The closiest swim to a underwater ecologial paradise teaming with tropical fish and corals. This area is a quiet tranquil area of Roatan without high end hotels and condos but close to the tourist meccas.

I love sitting watching the boats, watching and talking scuba divers about what they saw while looking underwater and most of all the beautiful sunsets while dining in the grill each night.

The beach has a lot of seaweed and trash following a storm that preceded our arrival. The water seems clean but there was a hundred yards of seaweed in the water you,d have to swim through. The sand is not something I would lay out on a towel on. This is a third world country but Sandy Bay Beach should... More

There is nothing expectacular about that beach to spend time. The only thing it was the fish on the water

If you are looking for the stereotypical lounging beach, this is not your best option. My family and I recently rented a house on Sandy Bay beach, and we were delighted with the snorkeling. The beach itself had a lot of trash, serves as a road, and has a great deal of foot traffic. The snorkeling: The reef is a... More

It is so quiet and peaceful here right now. Few tourists, boats and not too many insect issues. Snorkeling is good on both sides of the reef which is a decent swim even if you are starting at the end of a dock. If you are an inexperienced snorkeler, you would probably be more comfortable inside the reef. The beach... More

Small beach, great snorkeling, unfortunately it is also a road (albeit lightly used). Blue Bahia is great beach bar, do the pulled pork (only brick smoker on island).

At times we never saw another person on the beach. We were at Sundancer and noticed that the cruise people are now using the area in front of it for their snorkel trips which was not happy for us. Sometimes there were up to 9 snorkel boats. The beach is always in need of cleaning. The beach is so much... More
