Owner description: 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.

Beautiful sand and water, plenty of places to eat, good snorkeling too. Water taxis are plentiful to take a ride to West End.

“Penelope's Island Emporium”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Penelope's Island Emporium is a professionally managed and attractively arranged store for jeweleries. Ms Penny Leigh displays a great deal of good taste and knowledge on the jewels she offers. There are many in every price range. She also actively supports artists on Roatán Island, among them a collector of plastic garbage on the beaches. After cleaning his finds, he weaves very colorful and original purses from these raw materials. You will not regret a visit of her store.

“Nice beach but very busy and commercialized with a lot of street vendors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

This beach is beautiful and nice to visit but I definitely would not want to stay at one of the many resorts located on the beach. There are street vendors, bars and restaurants lining the entire beach which is fun, but there would be little or no quiet time to enjoy the scenery. Unfortunately the weather was not great so we did not get to experience the snorkeling, but we did hear that the snorkeling was great.
