Description:

West Bay is what many consider the picture-perfect Caribbean destination:...

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.

Nice beach, The sand is white and you have the opportunity to do snorkeling, kayak and use pads. Is a very calm beach. The only thing I complain is that while you walk there's people that sells you tours, massage, collars, etc. They stop you and start to offer their goods or services. This happens many time and we always... More

We've been to Infinity Bay on the west end of West Bay twice. We come for diving and use Infinity Divers. But one of our favorite casual activities is walking up and down this beach. There are a number of restaurants on the beach, usually associated with a hotel behind them. We've tried most of them by now and have... More

Our wonderful tour guide, Jose, took us to the Paradise Beach resort for a little bit of beach time. This was one of the most beautiful beaches we saw on our whole cruise and the admission price of $10 was a bargain. The restaurant at West Bay Beach that we went to has great food and drinks, and for us... More

This is my favorite beach. The sand is soft. The water warm. There are hundreds of tiny fish in the gently lapping water and larger ones just a few feet out. The snorkeling on the reef is fun and there's plenty to see. There are many places to eat and stay. And the sunsets are spectacular. I recommend early AM... More

Great beach to relax and snorkel at. Lots of restaurants to choice from. Everyone has different specials everyday. Some have live music and even a night time fire dance. There are a lot of merchants walking around selling food, souvenirs, hats, cigars, and massages.

This is a beautiful beach. The snorkeling is wonderful right off the beach near the Infinity Bay Resort. Saw turtles, barracuda, and lots of reef fish. Lots of beach bars and restaurants.

This beach has all that you want to spend a great day, you can snorkel from the beach, there are also water taxis that bring you to West End to do some shopping, and they cost 3$ per person one way. There are tons of restaurants and bars along the beach so you will definitely find a great pace to... More

West Bay Beach is beautiful! No other way to describe it. We stayed in Roatan for a week and went to West Bay Beach almost every day. It gets a bit more crowded on cruise ship days (but not bad at all). The beach clears out between 2-3 and goes back to being you and just a few other people.... More
