The Basics

Sleepy Sandy Bay and its white sand beach make for a more laid-back alternative to the busy West End. For a break from the beach, check out the Roatan Museum and Institute for Marine Sciences, Carambola Botanical Gardens, and Anthony’s Key Resort. You’ll also find some of the island’s top eateries and boutique hotels in the area.

Buggy adventures into the interior of the island, popular with thrill-seeking travelers, often end at Sandy Bay Beach with time to relax or go for a swim.

Best Beaches in Roatan

Sandy Bay Beach is a favorite among many travelers to Roatan, but it’s far from the only appealing option. Crystal clear water and bright white sand make West Bay Beach one of Honduras’ most beautiful, while Marbella Beach on the north coast is almost always empty of people. If you’re looking for a bustling beach scene complete with water sports, head to Half Moon Bay in the West End.
