West Bay Beach has some of the most beautiful waters I have ever seen. Try to snorkel as you can see 50 feet in every direction with no problem underwater. If beaching, you will be harassed a little bit buy people trying to sell stuff....More

Nice soft white sand and turquoise waters. Turn left and head towards cliffs and tiny rocky island if you like snorkeling for free. Suggest earlier the better for seeing larger fish. Plenty of places for thirst and hunger. Generally reasonable prices but further from beach...More

We went in the "Beaches" private area. Paid to go in and it included beach chairs, umbrella, bathrooms, and ghetto shower. Beach was crowded and not very clear. Very rustic facilities.

Beach is overly crowded on cruise days. Don’t pay for snorkeling if you have your own just dive in. The reef is a very short swim. View is amazing.

If you're looking for a beautiful beach in Roatan then West Bay will not disappoint. The water is warm and calm. Sunbeds and umbrellas can be rented for $10 and there are numerous restaurants and bars. An ideal place to visit.
