Tabyana Beach is one of the nicest beaches I've been to. The water is crystal clear and the snorkelling is amazing! There are lots of activities to do like parasailing, jet-ski rentals, scuba diving, etc. The only downside was the amount of vendors trying to sell you things. It was annoying! Another thing was the food at Tabyana Beach Resort... More

It's true what the reviews say. This beach is wonderful and one if not the best beach I've ever been to. The locals do not call it Tabyana Beach but just simply West Bay or West Bay Beach. The beach is pure white, small grain and the water is heavenly beautiful. The view all around is breath taking. There are... More

Tabyana Beach is a lartge expanse of powdery white sand, chaise lounges either under a tree or in the sun. pristine turquoise water accomodates all types of aquatic activities (snorkelling, kayaking, solo paddling and aquatic jumping castles etc (for a fee). We snorkelled in the warm water and saw a suprising variety of fish - some reasonably large. An excellent... More

Tabyana is the gem of Roatan. Here you can float on calm waters or follow a vast array of tropical fish through the coral. The crystal clear waters makes it easy to see at least 15 (or more!) feet deep. Observers sit atop kayaks assisting swimmers if necessary. My 13-year old son and I agreed to let one of them... More

My family went here on our cruise and booked through Royal Caribbean. A must excursion for a leisurely day at the beach and enough time for shopping at the port! The beach and water is AMAZING!!!! We felt very safe as there were armed security guards. The locals are very hospitable. Facilities: Very clean bathrooms, buffet, live band, shopping with... More

Tabyana is the most popular beach for cruise shippers and it can get crowded on ship days. BUT, it is a beautiful stretch of beach, with lots of nicer bars and restaurants than what you will find in West End. You can catch a water taxi from West End for about $10 pp or you can get land transport from... More

Close to paradise as it comes! Beautiful pristine waters on that beach in Roatan. My wife and I went on a cruise and made that one of our excursions. Glad we did! The people were friendly and the weather was perfect!

We booked this excursion through Carnival. One of the reasons we were on the cruise was to check out Roatan so I knew this beach was reported to have good snorkeling. We had our own snorkels and masks so we just rented the fins. There were changing rooms and bathrooms there. We found lawn chairs under the some trees with... More

Tabyana is a beach club on West Bay in Roatan, Honduras. We went on the cruise ship excursion - it was fabulous. The beach is now crowded with one little restaurant/club after another. But Tabyana is near the end and very nice. I love to snorkel off the beach and this is by far the best place to do it.... More
