Are you looking for a location off the beaten path? Try West Bay, Roatan.
Nothing beats the west shore
It's true that West Bay Beach is one of the nicest beaches on Roatan. And this, of course, attracts a number of tourists and locals alike. So expect to meet other vacationers and experience the local Caribbean culture together. If you enjoy spending time with other folks in addition to your family, look into spending a day on West Bay Beach.
And of course, that's not all West Bay Beach offers. While there, why not take a horseback ride, or catch one of Roatan's picturesque sunsets? If you're seeking adventure, head over to the Bananarama Dive Center, located right on the beach. With a variety of different trips for first-time through advanced divers, you're sure to make your day trip a memorable experience. If diving isn't your ideal activity, Bananarama also offers kayak rentals and island trinkets and souvenirs.
While high-throttle adventure and low-key relaxation activities couldn’t be more different, the ways to prepare for both are pretty similar. Always start with the basics: sunscreen, hats, towels and a bathing suit in case you plan to take a swim at any point during the day.
