A tropical paradise, Roatan is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. Whether you are looking for a family-friendly white-sand beach that offers ideal conditions for sunbathing and swimming or you want to explore secluded beaches on the island, Roatan caters to all tastes. Let’s take a look at some of the best beaches in Roatan.
West Bay Beach
One of the top beaches in all of Central America, West Bay Beach is an expansive white-sand beach with numerous diving spots just 70 feet from the shore. The good news is that there are no giant resorts close to the beach as the area has somehow managed to escape overdevelopment. Deep blue turquoise waters and the second-largest coral reef make this place a world-class snorkeling destination. You will find dozens of dive shops along the beach where you can rent snorkeling equipment. There are also shower facilities, lounge chairs, and volleyball nets on the beach, as well as restaurants and bars where you can have a refreshing drink and a snack.
Camp Bay Beach
If you are looking for that classic Caribbean beach with warm water, Camp Bay Beach should definitely be included on your list of beaches to visit on Roatan. What’s great about this beach is that it’s rarely overcrowded and you can easily find a secluded spot. Camp Bay Beach is mostly visited by locals who come here over the weekends to relax under the coconut and almond trees. In case you were planning to have a picnic here, on your way to the beach stop at the supermarket to get the necessary groceries. Travelers who prefer to dine at a restaurant can go for a short drive to the La Sirena de Camp Bay which is one of the most popular restaurants on the island.
Half Moon Bay Beach
Half Moon Bay Beach is located in West End and attracts both tourists and locals who come here to relax and get some sun. Expect to see scuba dive boats and fishing charters coming and leaving from dozens of docks, as well as a number of beginner divers, paddle boarders, and snorkelers on the beach. Vacationers can find some peace and quiet here and travelers who are searching for a beach with numerous activities, bars, and restaurants will wish to never leave Half Moon Bay Beach.
Havana Beach Club
One of the most pristine beaches here on Roatan, Havana Beach Club is located close to the Media Luna Resort and Parrot Tree Plantation. This beach club offers plenty of exciting activities to choose from including kayaking, snorkeling, and even horseback riding. There is an on-site restaurant called Lionfish Louie’s that serves delicious meals.
