Nice beach

Great public beach. Not too crowded due to the distance from the cruise port. Roughly a 40 minute taxi ride from Mahogany Bay (Carnival) cruise port.

Beautiful beach. It is the best beach to visit in Roatan. I highly recommend as a day excursion for cruisers.

This beach is pristine! The water is as clear as any you've seen. There's plenty to do, lots of activities available within walking distance and almost any kind of restaurant you might like. It does get a little crowded on the days when cruise ships are in port, but still so worth the stay or visit!

West Bay has the feeling of a quaint community. Not too many hotels, and was wonderful in the slow season (Aug. 2015). The ocean couldn't be more beautiful. The sand is wonderful. The snorkeling is amazing. Beach vendors tend to be annoying but all in all it was a terrific spot.

Very safe and family friendly atmosphere. No bug problems on this beach since they rake for sand flies. All activities are very accessible including several dive shops, parasailing, island tours, fishing, cruises, shopping, and plenty of good restaurants. Family friendly but for several hours on Thursday, cruise ships bring in a large crowds for a couple of hours. No high... More

This was the most beautiful beach that I have seen in all of Central America. Loved the vibe, the waters, the reef, the restaurants, the little shops, and cute resort along the way.

Great beach and with the reef 50 feet from the shore it can't be beat. Less people walking around trying to sell you things would make it more enjoyable.

É simplesmente maravilhoso! A água é transparente, morna. No costão esquerdo é maravilhoso para snorkeling. Tem até sinais no chão para os mergulhadores seguirem. It is wonderful. The water is cristal clear and warm. On the left coast is perfect for snorkling. Even there are sinals on bottle of the sea for the divers follow them.
