This was our favorite stop while cruising the Carribean. West Bay Beach is awesome. At the end of the beach, near the rocks, is the best snokeling. It was better than some of the paid excursions to take you out snorkeling. This spot is right on the beach, just have your own mask and snorkel. There are vendors and plenty... More

Bananarama was a lot of fun! Had a pizza there which was good. Parking is very limited though. Be sure to verify where you park is o.k. The guy at the entrance let us park there free since we were staying for food & drink. So nice of him! GREAT BEACH Views!

We visited this beach daily. Lots of delicious restaurants and bars on the beach. There are some sand flies that come out after the rain.

This beach was gorgeous. The water was clean with the perfect water temperature. My small kids were able to sit in the water without fear of a wave pushing them down. The inflatable water slide and trampoline is a lot of fun! We love it there.

Nice powdery white sand with crystal clear warm water. The reef is very accessible and offers spectacular snorkeling. Schools of fish, large and small, sea turtles, etc. Highly recommended.

I love West Bay beach. But because the local businesses go out and feed the fish on the reef the fish now are getting aggressive. I actually got BIT twice in 2013 out in front of Infinity Bay as I was swimming away! If you area tourist encourage the local businesses that take tourists out snorkling NOT to FEED THE... More

West Bay beach is a pretty good place to swim and a fairly descent place to snorkel. But the water and the sand are only a part of the attraction of this place. West Bay is also a great place to hang out due to the huge selection of bars and places to eat that ring the beach. All of... More

As beautiful a beach as you will find in the Caribbean. I have visited a couple of times. Once on a week long trip to Roatan where the beach was very uncrowded. My first visit was a part of a cruise ship excursion and I expect if you go there when the ships are in port you will find things... More

This is the "touristy" part of Roatan. I never thought I liked doing "touristy" things but it is absolutely beautiful here and I had a great time. Abundance of aquatic life in the reef for snorkelers to enjoy and is right off the beach. aka- no paid excursion required.

actually surprised when we got a little farther out that the coral was alive and good. It is a very very beautiful and quiet beach during the slow season!
