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.

This beach is amazing in many ways. The water is bath tub warm and an incredible colour. Husband likened it to Tahiti. Snorkelling is easy and decent on the shore side and spectacular seaside. Simply walk out into water and at hip depth sink down and start snorkelling. Unfortunately stupid tourists and a few irresponsible local 'guides' have taken to... More

This beach is beautiful with white sand, shallow water with nice views. There is a wonderful reef on the left side and a number of good resorts and restaurants to choose from.

Simply amazing! Emerald crystal clear water, white sand, palm trees. Not very crowded. If you want to eat cheap local food ask for local barbecue near main road, 5 minutes’ walk from the beach. Delicious food for excellent price, good opportunity to meet locals. One of the best beaches I ‘ve ever seen.

We stayed right on this beach. It's lovely. Very sandy bottom; no rocks. Snorkeling is excellent right here! Bring equipment; it's very expensive to rent.

We stayed on West Bay Beach in a VRBO and it was absolutely fantastic. The water is crystal clear and the beach isn't over crowded.

This was one of the best beaches we ever visited. Nice long enough beach to walk, lots of restaurants to choose from, cheap massage options right on the beach. I will definitely come back.

I've been to Roatan a couple of times now, and we typically stay in West End, but we always make a point to take a water taxi out to West Bay at least one day. For my boyfriend and I, we go for the snorkeling, and what wonderful snorkeling it is! It is easy to spend the entire day in... More

I must admit that I have never seen such beautiful, clean, and inviting beaches and water. My wife and I walked the beaches mornings and evenings and as several others enjoyed the views, the locals, and the water.

My wife, son and I had a port of call in Roatan and decided on spending the day at West Bay Beach. After getting off the ship, we arranged transportation at the port. The price is normally $15 US return per person and you are taken with other travelers in a minivan. A guide also joins you and provides some... More
