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.

The waters here at West End Beach are so cool and clear. The massage for $20.00 was so relaxing right at the waters edge. The girls were very professional and friendly. One has to pay for the beach chairs $5.00 but essential to have if you are spending the day as it is very hot in the sun. Would go... More

Clean, nice beach. Has several local bars and restaurants to eat and drink. You can also find several activities to pass the time and boat tours also. Don't be afraid to ask, people are very friendly and almost all speak english

Beautiful , white, soft, sand. Excellent snorkeling right off the beach.We saw lobsters, puffer fish, a barracuda, plus tons of parrot fish and other colorful fish. Easy access since you literally walk right off the beach. We LOVED our hotel, The Grand Roatan!

Beautiful stretch of beach lined with hotels, bars and restaurants. Very clean and felt very safe as there were armed security guards from each resort that would stand out near the beach. When the cruise lines were in port the beach was bustling. There were vendors trying to sell everything from sunglasses to Conch shells. When the ships left it... More

This little area has something for everyone.. shops with local treasures (especially the Rusty Fish) great restaurants, bars, etc. Half Moon Bay is delightful with very few sand fleas ;-) and about 100 yards off the beach is a glorious, calm reef. Breathtaking!

West Bay Beach is probably one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and, certainly, on Roatan. I have been coming to Roatan and West Bay Beach since about 1992 and have watched its evolution from a really laid-back beach to a really busier, laid-back beach. Yes, you can't ride horses on the beach like you used to be... More

West bay is beautiful. It is like a pool, clear water and no waves. Reef there is healthy and you can see loads of fish. You have to be ready to haggle for beach activities, though.

We recently stayed in West Bay beach for one week. The beach and water are beautiful and there is a reef on one end with excellent snorkeling. The only downside about the beach is the beach vendors.. The sunsets from West Bay beach are amazing!
