West Bay is what many consider the picture-perfect Caribbean destination: white sand, clear, calm waters and full service resorts. The variety of water activities include scuba diving, fishing charters, snorkeling and parasailing. Scuba diving and other outfitters leave directly from the beach so starting your water-based activities is easy and convenient.

Excellent for diving and snorkeling!!!

West Bay is excellent beach for diving and snorkelling. Diving sites are very close to the beach. You could just swim out to do snorkelling, boat not necessary.

If you like swimming, diving, snorkeling or just sunning on the beach this is the place to go if your visiting Roatan. Oh, did I leave out fishing. All of these are within easy access to this area.

Great beach! We purchased a day pass (only $15) from Paradise Beach Hotel which allowed us access to beach chairs, the hotel pool, showers, restrooms, and most importantly, the hotel cabana (bar). From here you could access the many beach activities ( jet skis, parasailing, snorkeling, or diving).

Beautiful beach with astounding snorkelling steps into the water. The beach bar/restaurants are good but the snorkelling is amazing. Don't waste your money on a snorkelling tour, just get in the water and your right where they would have taken you anyway

What an amazing beach day! The water was cool, refreshing, & crystal clear. From the port pier, the taxi ride was $20pp round trip and there was a $10 beach entry fee as it is a private resort location. Taxis were able to be obtained from the marketplace vendors at the pier. There are other options (higher fees) for also... More

We stay at the Infinity Bay Resort. We love to just walk into the ocean and snorkel to our hearts content. The beach is always well manicured and well taken care of. No sand fleas for all the 4 years we have been there.

One the most beautiful beaches I have visited and with one the most amazing coral reef just a few footsteps from the beach. Care must be given by local government to enforce cleanliness and garbage rules.

The beach is beautiful and the water is clear and warm. About 82 degrees. Great snorkeling. There is s lot of cruise ship traffic in the last few years that has taken away from the atmosphere. Many vendors walk the beach selling their wares to the point of annoyance. But all in all it's a nice experience. But one must... More
