“Diving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

The diving off this stretch of beach is incredible! The warm waters here are perfect and the pristine sand is brilliant white. This secluded beach is prefect for catching some rays or snorkeling the reef. The diving however is even better here with the great visibility.

“Tabayana is the best white sand beach in Roatan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

If you dont mind the crowds and the numerous beach vendors, this is the best white sand beach in Roatan. The snorkeling is great, as it is along the outer reef on most northwest shore of the island.

“My Idea of Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Came here as the second part of an excursion from Princess Cruises. If I'm ever lucky enough to come back to Roatan, I will head here as soon as possible. Beautiful beach, clear water, easy snorkeling for those who are just learning. Comfortable lounge chairs, music with steel drums for that tropical feel. Jerked chicken and other food available, clean restrooms, and best of all - a guard to watch your stuff while you're in the water. There were some locals offering to braid hair, sell you conch shells, etc. but they weren't nearly as pushy as I've seen other places. It was by far one of the best beach experiences I've had in a long time.

“Tabyana Beach Break - Carnival Magic Excursion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Travel to and from was via tour bus. Crowded bus with drive lasting about 40 minutes one way. The beach was beautiful and the snorkeling was awesome. The only thing that I was disappointed in was the fact that you had to pay extra to do any water activities. Snorkel gear, kayak, paddle board, banana ride, the aqua glide, for example, were all extra fees. I guess the initial fee of $45 per person was just for transportation and entrance fee. A few vendors there but they were no problem. Our snorkeling guide was excellent.

“Our favorite beach on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Tabyana is removed from most of the restaurants and located directly in front of the beautiful coral that lines the country. You won't be approached by vendors, the beach is stunning and the water perfectly clear. The fish are active on this part of the beach and will swim right up to you and make sure to wear Cactus Juice to avoid being bit by sandflies but otherwise - enjoy this little taste of paradise!
