Want to get away from the hustle and bustle of West End or West Bay? Then find a place on Sandy Bay Beach. I would recommend SeaDancer Villas.

Came here 3 times but mainly to visit the restaurant Blue Bahia. Didn’t really see anyone using it as a ‘traditional ‘ beach but it is pleasant . Dive school and couple of restaurants which were nice Lovely sunsets

We were here for an afternoon. We rented some chairs and swam at the beach. The sand is beautiful white and the water is a gradual drop off. Centrally located by many things to do.

It's not bad, but not amazing. There are more beautiful beaches in Roatan. But it was still nice to have a rest there. The water was good, but not so clear.

This place truly has some great snorkeling! There is all kinds of sea life that you can see in very shallow water. You need to check this place out if you can!

We were lucky to rent a beachfront homestead sunnySide right on Sandy Bay. The sunsets were breathtaking. We are sure coming back. Close enough to West end but far from the noise. Loved Sandy Bay Beach 🏖

Found a quaint little private house directly in front of the most impressive snorkeling I have probably ever done. The beach is beautiful and sandy and quiet. However, not so great for swimming from the shore. If you can go off the end of one...More

If you can afford a private house or bungalow, this is a great area. You are just far enough out of town to avoid noise, etc. Taxis (Motuts) are very reasonably priced if you do not want to walk.

The reef is about 100 yards off shore all along Sandy Bay. You should be able to swim out to the reef no matter where you are staying. Any where along the reef will be good for snorkling. In many places the water is only... More

Dan is correct, there's not all inclusive hotels, most of them offer breakfast but lunch and dinner is on you.

Have not heard of Spooky Channel. Recently came back from a month at Sandy Bay. It is a long stretch of beach several miles. The sand is not beautiful. Very few people lie in it. Depending where you stay, there may be one... More
