The Basics

West Bay Beach is one of the best spots on Roatan Island to spend a day relaxing in the sun or snorkeling. Adventurous travelers can also enjoy a range of water sports, including scuba diving and jet skiing. Those who’d prefer to stay dry can opt for a glass-bottom boat tour above the offshore reef.

Many of the resorts lining West Bay Beach allow visitors who aren’t staying overnight to use their facilities for a small fee. These day passes typically include access to a swimming pool, beach chairs, and showers and sometimes also include a credit for food or drinks.

Shore Excursion: Roatan Paradise West Bay Beach with Lunch
This is my second experience where we were unable to access the transportation from the port to West Bay Beach . Return transportation has always been fine. Each time I couldn’t locate my ride had to pay a cab $30 . Other than that we love the excursion

All Inclusive Beach Pass or Day Pass @ Infinity Bay + Zipline & Animal Sanctuary
Roatan is a beautiful, super friendly island with amazing people and beaches. We went to Gumbalimba Park to meet capuchin monkeys, maccaws and iguanas, and walk the beautiful grounds to learn about the island’s history. Daniel was our personal guide who picked us up at port, was super friendly and easy to contact. He speaks English fluently and was fun to be with as he took us to the park and then to the hotel for our beach pass. We loved hanging out with Daniel, and having pupusas at a local eatery right off the water. This island is similar to Hawaii, and a lot less expensive… great people, lots of activities, including an amazing coral reef for snorkeling. Daniel also showed us the best way to get to the coral drop off to see lots of fish, brain, fan and tube coral of all colors. We will be coming back!
