We came here for the day off a cruise ship stop and it didn't seem overcrowded or bothered by the folks selling stuff. The water was the perfect temperature, the beach was very clean, and the snorkeling off the rocky point was surprisingly good. Good visibility, saw many varieties of fish, large and small, and the coral heads were healthy.... More

There was nothing really wrong with the beach. We spent the day there just because. Hotels/Motels/bars line the beach edge with vendors trolling the sands. Some of the vendors would honor your no but others could be quite persistent. If you like standing in waist deep water with 50 other people then this is the place to be. If you... More

The snorkeling was very easy here. No waves, warm water, reef and fish as soon as you hit the water.

We loved all of West Bay Beach and staying at Infinity Bay was amazing. Very safe and secure and they have their own dock. Going out on walks at sunset was terriffic!

Protected by the reef, this beautiful oceanfront is the closest thing to actually being in a fish aquarium..water is completely clear. fish are huge and colorful. We absolutely loved this place!

Loved W/B beach. The snorkeling was outstanding ...if you are going here please don't stand on the coral or touch it. The sand is soft, and white and a nice stretch for walking. We enjoyed a variety of restaurant's along the stretch of beach.

This is a must stop for avid snorkelers where one can easily snorkel a few meters away from the beach. White powdery sand with gentle waves and gradual slope make it also good for swimming for young and old. It can be crowded with vendors peddling anything but that is part of the appeal of West Bay......a good stop for... More

The barrier reef snorkeling starts right on the beach - no need to rent a boat to get you to the reef. If you like kayaking, great place to try it. Park your kayak in front of the many restaurants on the beach, and try an ice cream, or Imperial Cerveza. I always look for "long term" boat parking as... More

We stopped here for a short visit while visiting Roatan on a cruise ship. We all agreed that we would like to come back and stay for a week on West Bay Beach! The waters were warm and very calm, with a gentle slope into the water. The sun was hot and the beers were awesome!
