“Very nice beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

This is a very good looking beach, even though rain messed up our trip. There are a number of resorts to chose around the beach, you can pay a fee and use all their facilities, including on some, infinity pools. I do not know a lot of beaches in Roatan to compare but this one is very nice. Given the rain I unfortunately did not even snorkel there.

“one of the top 5 beaches in the Caribbean.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Best beach in the World according to me. Great for sun bathing, swimming snorkeling and other activities fun stuff. Sits some of the greatest bars and restaurants in the Country. If you are in an all inclusive environment in Roatan, scape to West Bay for a few hours.

“Tourist-laden beaches!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

If you're looking to rub elbows with island visitors, this is your place. Full of tourists, beach-front bars and hotels all in a row.

“The best beach on the island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

This beach was the best in my opinIon. The water was crystal clear, you could see the fishes swimming around you! No waves to disturb the floor either...wish I was there now!

“Depends on what you are looking for...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

West Bay beach is by far the most beautifully groomed beach we have found on the island. However, it is also packed with high end resorts. It is a wonderful place to be if you are looking for the resort feel with tons of restaurants and bars. If you are looking for a more non-commercialized original Honduran feel it may not be the place for you. Out of a week, we only spent a couple hours here. Nevertheless, still a very nice place to be.
