The property is unique to Roatan. Just off the main road to a private beach area. This area is part of the Roatan Marine Park preserve. The reef system parallels the white sand beach of Sandy Bay The closiest swim to a underwater ecologial paradise teaming with tropical fish and corals. This area is a quiet tranquil area of Roatan without high end hotels and condos but close to the tourist meccas.

Beach!!

Be prepared to find on a beach mostly for yourself. Enjoy the view of white sandy beaches and blue water. Perfect place to enjoy a picnic.

Sandy beach is not a crowded area and you get some fantastic areas that one can easily access and have a great day. Some areas of the beach are for private hotels but some are just open to walk. Best during sunset

The waters are calm and clear for swimming/wading. Lots of action here. Soliciting for beach activities and souvenirs. Avoid on "cruise ship days", I've been told.

We really enjoyed the Sandy Bay Beach because it was quieter than the crowded beaches at West Bay. You can snorkel to the reef or walk a long way along the sand. Just an awesome place.

Great beach. Very clean and amazing water. We had no fear of Zika virus as the island is pretty far offshore. $5 beers and food was good.

This is a great beach for snorkeling and is a must do for everytime we go to Roatán. You can access the area around Anthony's key which provides a parking lot. If you do not have a car, you can take a taxi or one of the local collectivo buses (a fraction of the price). Anthony's is easy to spot,... More

I visited this area of Roatan in 2015. This beach was walking distance from our hotel and surrounded by many resorts, eateries and shopping. It's a great beach to hang out get some sun and swim.

We rented a house in this area years ago and the place we stayed was broken in to and the safe where our passports, etc were kept was ripped from the wall and stolen. We have returned to Roatan several times since but have never stayed in the Sandy Bay as as we have learned that this area does not... More

I loved this area to stay in as it is not as crowded as the west It also had a great mix of locals and expats and tourists. If you are not into the nightlife but still want some restaurants with live music this is your place. Great snorkeling area

We stayed on the beach in Sandy Bay and it was perfect - it was away from the activity at West End but close enough to both the airport, West End and other attractions in the area. The beach is very nice and the snorkeling on the reef just off the beach is amazing! Many dive and snorkel boats moor... More
