West Bay Beach Tours

star-3.5

West Bay Beach
With a coconut palm-lined stretch of white sand and a colorful coral reef just offshore, West Bay is one of the most popular beaches on Roatan and among the prettiest in all of Honduras. The area around the beach offers a wide range of accommodations as well as restaurants, cocktail bars, and shops.

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. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • West Bay Beach can get very crowded, so arrive early to stake out a space in the sand.
  • Don’t forget to pack a bathing suit, a beach towel, and reef-safe sun protection. You may also want to bring an umbrella for shade, if you’re not planning to use a local resort’s facilities.
  • There is no fee to access West Bay Beach.
  • Visitors can rent snorkeling equipment at beachside outfitters.

How to Get There
West Bay Beach is on the west coast of Roatan. To reach the beach from West End Village, you can take a car or water taxi, both of which take about 10 minutes. The beach is roughly a 30-minute drive from Juan Manuel Gálvez International Airport and the Port of Roatan cruise ship terminal.

When to Get There
The best time of year to enjoy the beaches on Roatan, including West Bay Beach, is between March and May. Avoid the area when a cruise ship is moored, as it can get overrun with passengers.

An Evening in the West End
For a romantic evening out in Roatan’s West End, start with cocktails and dinner at one of the restaurants at West Bay Beach, where the sunsets are often spectacular. Afterward, take a water taxi to West End Village, a popular spot full of restaurants, bars, and lounges, where you can enjoy live music, karaoke, and dancing.
