Locals gather here on Thursdays for great conversation, great company, and good pizza. Plenty of drinks and great setting. Accessible by boat only as this is the clubhouse for the Turtle Grass Marina. But hire a water taxi if needed...this place is worth the visit....More

The turtle shack is a great place to grab a bite between dives or for your evening at a really affordable price! Personally I liked 2 for 1 pizza Mondays! Because I took one back to our condo for late noght snacking!

Mark and Lori run an excellent restaurant providing excellent food for a good price. Mark can provide you with some of his locally brewed beer or a lass of pineapple wine...TASTY!

The Turtle Shack is located in Calabash Bight, Roatan Island or "Out East" as some say. It is in a nice quiet area of the old Roatan community that has changed little in the past few hundred years. We have a wonderful view and an enjoyable atmosphere surrounded by the Caribbean Sea and the Bight (Bay) itself with Mangroves, birds, iguanas and our Furry Friends four Spanish Water Dogs. Just off the dock you can see the many sea creatures one of which are Queen Conch. The dining area is screened in for your comfort and there is an open deck to take in the view. The boat trip from Oak Ridge where our parking at Jesse's is a treat in itself. Come enjoy the good food, Micro Brewed Pale Ale (think Newcastle) and a Pineapple wine made on premises along with a Mango Tango wine cooler for those with a taste for sweeter wine.The parking is 20 Lempiras, the boat transport is 120 Lempiras per person or a group rate of 240 Lempiras for three or more (exchange rate app. 19 Lempiras to 1 USD).
