This is a great beach for snorkeling, people-watching, and sitting in the sun. There are quite a few restaurants and hotels on the beach, and you will find a great deal of people selling tourist wares.

If you get tired of lounging by the beach and water activities this is a nice place to shop and eat on the island.

Nice stretch of beach with multiple food, drink vendors and plenty of action on cruise ship days. Nice beach to go for a walk, and sit and enjoy the sun.

Outdoor activities were great, but beware of pickpockets. People are kind; there are a lot of water activities to do, but our camera was stolen at the Paradise Beach Hotel restaurant we had lunch. Even so, it´s the best place for snorkeling and kayaking in the area.

I got a 30 minute message. Had plenty of lounge chairs,rest rooms were clean Had lots of water sports, snorkeling was good. There is a $10.00 per person charge to use the facilities: bathrooms,showers, chairs, and umbrellas. If you don't get a band & pay to use amenities you can't use them. You can swim, snorkel and lay on the... More

We have visited Roatan twice (a week each visit) in the past few years and West Bay Beach is our favorite place on the island. I wouldn't say it gets crowded when cruise ships are in port, just more populated. If you're on extended stay go on a day other than Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday to avoid cruise ship days....
