West Bay is what many consider the picture-perfect Caribbean destination: white sand, clear, calm waters and full service resorts. The variety of water activities include scuba diving, fishing charters, snorkeling and parasailing.

Captain Ray and his crew of Bay Island Adventures made for an unforgettable outing. We were wined, dined and snorkeled with style and personality. He has a surprise dining room! Hope to return someday.

Very pretty beach, particularly at the quieter end in front of Grand Roatan. Warm turquoise water as expected from the jeweled Caribbean, friendly locals and less aggressive vendors than can be found on most tourist beaches. Check when the cruise ships come in if you want to avoid the larger day crowds.

First off, befriending Dave from Roatan Paddlesports (a fellow SUP rental company), was probably the best thing to make this vacation as amazing as it was (and then his wife Anita baked us pineapple cookies-oh, love her!!)

My husband, daughter and I just returned from a 10-day vacation on Roatan. You can find various tour operators as you walk along magnificent West Bay Beach. We had the good fortune of meeting a fellow named Alexis on our first day. Alexis can arrange a variety of excursions for you: snorkelling, fishing trips, dolphin viewing, jet-skiing etc. Alexis and... More

Gorgeous! Clear water with great sand, and snorkeling! The reef is just feet off of the beach. Not crowded, on non-cruise days.

Great time on the beach. Lots of things to do and see. Some vendors selling local items but not very harassing like other places we've been. Plenty of places to eat or grab a drink.

Not extremely crowded. A few small resorts and restaurants on the small 1 mile beach. Water taxis, fishing boats, and tour boats pull right up to the beach.
