The north coast of Roatan in the Honduras Bay Islands in Honduras, is shadowed by the world's second longest barrier reef and is surrounded and hugged by beautiful, tropical coral reef beaches. Roatan's Island beaches are clean, expansive and uncrowded, and West Bay Beach, is considered Roatan's best beach. It is a mile of shimmering white sand, palm trees and clear turquoise waters. Its waters are calm and ideal for swimming and snorkeling. At one end of the bay the coral reef comes to within a few yards of the shore and is excellent for snorkeling among the vibrant marine life and brilliantly colored tropical fish.
For your holidaying convenience, and within a minutes walking distance, you will find diving shops, snorkeling tours, kayak rentals, and restaurants offering either local island fare, often seafood dishes and international cuisine.

This end of the beach is where the reef comes closest to the shore.
