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.

I really enjoyed this beach. The water is super clear and there are a bunch of people selling knick knacks and things like that. We went snorkeling and it was very beautiful, the problem was that the goggles they gave us made everything extremely foggy. Other than that the water was really nice and there are a bunch of tours... More

Went snorkelling from this beach and spent some time there in the sun. Beautiful sand and clear water but the ridiculous number of water taxis and excursion boats caused an excessive amount of exhaust. It was a bit of an atmosphere spoiler in the air quality and how it detracted form the lovely view. Also a lot of peddlers. They... More

Very busy beach especially on cruise ship days. Liked far end near Grand Roatan. Snorkelled right from beach, pretty good. Great sunset cocktails from a fun bar down the other end near Fosters. Enjoyed a steak at Argentinian resto close by, parking behind the resto - bumpy dirt road :) Try local Barena beer with a slice of lime a... More

Beautiful beaches at the West Bay, great access to snorkeling as well that are accessible from the beach . Can get very crowded when cruise ships are in port so plan accordingly. Beachers offers free lounge chairs on the beach if your a customer so no need to bring one with you.

The beach is beautiful. It is long and pleasant to walk on. Lots of trinket sellers and massages on the beach. The bars at the beach side hotels are only 50 feet away. The best part however is the snorkeling is beautiful and the number of fish terrific. The coral is beautiful and you can just float over it all... More

You have to pay to get onto the beach, there are 6 packages ranging from $10 to $60 each $10 gets you a sun lounger, access to the restroom and the beach/sea. As we got there it started raining so we went snorkelling another $30 each. It was supposed to be for an hour but was more like 45 minutes,... More

West Bay is the premier beach on Roatan. White sand and clear water with a variety of amenities, restaurants, bars, water toys, and beach vendors. Great snorkeling is available less than 75 yards off the beach in many spots - an easy swim out in shallow water to the coral reefs and an abundance of colorful tropical fish. The beach... More
