Owner description: The property is unique to Roatan. Just off the main road to a private beach area. This area is part of the Roatan Marine Park preserve. The reef system parallels the white sand beach of Sandy Bay The closiest swim to a underwater ecologial paradise teaming with tropical fish and corals. This area is a quiet tranquil area of Roatan without high end hotels and condos but close to the tourist meccas.

Bring a beach umbrella...no shade here! Spooky Channel was like floating in the sky! It was surrealistic. Biggest parrot fish we ever saw. We named him Henry Leavey, after an elderly grounds keeper we met at the children's learning center!

This review does have good information. The Sandy Bay beach area is different than the West Bay beach area. Indeed West bay beach is the most beautiful beach on the island and the most populated. Sandy Bay beach is a long shore line beach with some areas shoaling low water sand ,other areas teaming with Marine life along the beach side. Just beyond the grass areas is the beautiful coral reefs. Just in front of Hobbies Hideaway is some of the most beautiful shallow reef area
At the head of the beach way up at the end are palm trees and many other shade trees.Also at Hobbies it is surrouinded with beautiful coconut bearing f palms on the open beach front
For a nice morning walk start at Hobbies and walk toLlawsons Rock swim out to Spooky channel,just down the beach from Hobbies and then to the prominent Anthony's key Resort.
This strech of white sand beach is awesome

The beach is not busy but there are sand flies and an occasional car driving through. Because there is not much distance between the beach edge and the water you would need to move every time a resident drives along the beach.
