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 probably the prettiest beach I've ever been to. The water is gorgeous and clear. We had a great time spending a couple hours here while in Roatan. Next time we hope to spend all our time at this beach while on Roatan.

Don't miss snorkeling here, or just enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches around.. if you are just there for the day on a cruise stop, I would suggest visiting with Cleves tours !

This is one of our favorite beaches, it is kept clean and the people on the beach are kind. Ya, about every 20 minutes some one is trying to sell you something. But you can ignore the. It is a very nice beach nonetheless.

we came in on NCL and we paid $30 for the two of us round trip. go to the tour guide stand and not the taxi stand. the tour guides wait with you and take you back when you're ready. the taxi is twice the price and don't wait.
