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.

Busy but beautiful

This beach is beautiful and most of the resorts are set back and hide by palm trees. Great snorkelling right of the beach. There are lots of venders but their not pushy!

There are a lot of vendors walking up and down the beach but depending on which bar and grill your at the staff will ask them to stay away.

A great way to spend a day! We took A very inexpensive water taxi to west bay beach, relaxing town that is a mix of locals and tourists. Great shopping, restaurants and bars overlooking the water! Bought a hand made table runner that is stunning! Will definitely be back!

Kind of a crazy ride to get there, but the beach is beautiful. Water is clear, sand is soft. Not many people harassing you to buy things, like some places. Definitely a good to place.

We stayed in Sandy Bay where there is a lot of turtle grass so we came to West Bay Beach a few times. The water is post card turquoise for sure! Be prepared for crowds and vendors. It can get windy. We were supposed to sail out of here for a sunset cruise, but it was too windy to even... More

great beach with plenty of activities. $21 per person to para sail. $275 for 2 people in Florida. All beach chairs in a nice shaded area under palm trees with drink and food waiters. Bars and dancing close by. I gave up on beach vacations years ago after traveling from Louisiana to Florida every year and just became really bored... More

Best beach in Roatan. Clean and plenty of room. The biggest drawback are the vendors constantly asking you to buy something or get a massage. Some of the best sunsets you will ever see.

About a 20 minute cab ride from cruise terminal. Beautiful beach and cool little town. Lots of things to say and some great snorkeling right off the beach.

I stayed at Infinity Bay Resort on West Bay and the waters were breathtakingly clear! There were so many beach activities to choose from! The vendors on the beach made this a one stop shop! I did not have to leave the beach to purchase all of my souvenirs!!!

This was by far the best snorkeling right off the beach I have ever seen in the Carribbean. The reef is vibrant and well protected.
