The stunning locale has it all, from sugar-white beaches near shopping and dining to dense foliage filled with wildlife. Discover it for yourself with a stay in our relaxing West Bay vacation rentals.
Beaches in West Bay
West Bay lies at the southernmost tip of the island of Roatan. Like the rest of the Bay Islands, Roatan is off the northern coast of Honduras, only a quick ferry ride away from the mainland. Of course, with crystal waters and soft white sands, it's hard to imagine that anyone would ever want to leave West Bay!
The area boasts some of the best snorkeling in the Caribbean. With spectacular coral reef an easy swim from the shore, you'll have plenty of opportunities to see the vibrant marine life that call it home. If you're in need of equipment, you can rent it or visit a store like Mayan Divers to purchase anything you need.
When you need a break from the sun, the shoreline is only moments from a wide variety of restaurants and cafés. Grab a cocktail at the Beach Club and enjoy the sunset, or head to West Bay Mall for some shopping.
Jungles, Wildlife, and Adventure in West Bay
If you care to venture from the wonders of the coastline, all you need to do is head a short distance inland. The palm trees that line the beach grow denser as you head north and east, culminating in forest-like conditions near Gumbalimba Park. You can enjoy hiking trails, a fun gift shop, and more stunning beaches, as well as the Hanging Gardens. Exciting encounters with parrots, monkeys, toucans, and more await! If you're ready for more adventure, South Shore Zipline Tours to the east offers a thrilling way to experience the lush beauty of the jungle.
Roatan is full of incredible destinations to discover, and our West Bay vacation rentals are easily among the best. Make sure it's part of your itinerary the next time you're in the Caribbean!
