Where is West End in comparison to West Bay....?

Is there a map that shows both of them in relation to each other? Been reading for a few hours today about Roatan and can't seem to figure out if they are on the same side/end of the island......any help would be appreciated. Google earth did not help :(

I can't seem to find the map I really like but this one will do.

Where is says West End that is the village of West End.

Where is says Beach, that is West Bay, aka West Bay Beach.

They are on the same side of the island at the end closest to the mainland, they are on the leeward side of the island with calmer waters inside the reef. They are about a 45 minute walk along the beach from each other or one can take a water taxi for about5 minutes.

Here's another site you can check with not only a map, but satellite view and other info about the island. Cheers.

You will see Tabyana beach marked in between West Bay and West End. Tabyana beach is the same thing as West Bay Beach. West Bay is a beautiful white sand strip of beach where the reef comes very close to shore. West End is a "village" that is geared towards the tourists...little shops, funky little bars, etc...this is where you would go if you want to stay out a little later and party.

Sparky, I was really liking that map til I noticed where they have Tabyana Beach.

I do appreciate the East/West orientation. :) West Bay is a bit more south than it is west. And finally I understand north shore vs south shore. woohoo!

As the crows flies I suppose West Bay should have really been called "West South West Bay" that sometimes has a beach called Tabyana.

From the map I was looking at ... once "West" of Palmetto the whole island "leans" south. Not to worry I am not going to expect people to change the name of anything I just never understood why people insist West Bay is at the west end of the island when you see directly west from the bay..hey maybe that is the reason.

Please Manuel, let us not argue.... the whole the thing is a jest anywho, this would be the reason Sparky suggested ""West South West Bay" that sometimes has a beach called Tabyana."

Laugh and leave it yes? We are all friends having a bit of a go...
