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.

My family and I spent a week on West Bay Beach and loved it! The snorkeling is amazing and the kids loved playing in the sand and water all day! We will be back!

This beach offers calm waters and abundant reefs and tropical sea life for snorkeling. One of the best locations we have been.

After one nine day visit, Roatan has been added to my list of retirement destination options. The snorkeling really is the best off shore snorkeling in the world. There is something truly anyone can enjoy, from the beginner or timid snorkeler to a certified diver. There are various depths. Shallow areas close to shore with some human damage. Shallow areas...

Water is cristal clear, the beach is clean and quite long. At one end the coral reef is very close to the shore and you can snorkel and see lots of nice creatures. Lots of peddlers offering massages, bracelets, sun glasses, tee shirts etc
