West Bay is what many consider the picture-perfect Caribbean destination:...

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 is such a beautiful beach with restaurants, bars, rolling ice cream carts, and great Snorkeling. I love this beach and each time I visit, it feels like "vacation." You can't do Roatan without visiting this beach.

This beach is amazing but on the days that cruise ships arrive becomes crowded!!! We went to this beach on a Monday and it was very crowded, specially during the morning. We went there on a Thursday and it looked like Paradise!!! It has very good snorkeling!!!

Stayed at Bananarama. Walked to the end each day, best snorkeling around. Fantastic!! Snorkeled lots of places, even took a day trip to Old Port Royal....however felt West Bay (down in front of the Grand Roatan Hotel was better especially for snorkeling). Awesome reef! Phenomenal fish but you have to go out where it drops off. Amazing!! Totally worth doing.... More

We came here for one of our shore excursions we booked on our cruise and really liked it. It's a beautiful beach with beautiful water and we got to snuba right off the beach. The staff was great and it's a beautiful place to spend your time. Roatan in general is very beautiful. The only thing I didn't like was... More

Great beach, only thing - visit it in the morning or earlier in the day if possible. It's very windy in the later part of the day.

We found Karla on our last day and were so impressed with her and Marco's designs. I didn't expect to bring back any souvenirs or jewelry but these handcrafted original pieces were too beautiful to resist. It might be a bit hard to find because it is just a table on the beach and isn't always there, but it is... More

I've had the pleasure of going to Roatan once a year for the last 3 years. Every time I visit, we stay in West Bay and spend our time at the beach. It... Is... BEAUTIFUL!! Growing up, my parents took me on cruises and I was able to see beaches all over the Caribbean. This is by far the best!... More
