Wheatear you decide to stay for life or only stay for a short vacation, there is a long list of activities waiting for you on Roatan.
Scuba Diving: Roatan sits on the second largest barrier reef in the world, the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. In the later parts of the 20th century, Roatan was one of the diving world’s best kept secrets. Boasting a number of fascinating shipwrecks, as well as the incredibly biodiverse Mesoamerican Reef (think hammerhead, nurse, and reef sharks, barracuda, sea turtles, jacks, grunts, tuna, rays, eels), the waters around are teeming with treasure, both literally and figuratively.
Water Sports: With the reef so close, there is amazing snorkeling just a minute or two from the shore. There is so much to see in and around the reef that many visitors prefer the ease of snorkeling versus diving. Paddle boarding and kayaking are also very popular because the sea is so calm on the north shore and the water so clear.
Beachin’ it: Roatan is known the world over for it’s beautiful waters and white sand beaches. From the bustling and convenient Half Moon Bay in West End, to Havana Beach and the east end beaches (including Camp Bay), to the island’s top beach destination, West Bay Beach, there is a warm- and clear-watered, white sand beach for every mood you’ll experience on Roatan. The beaches of West End and West Bay are particularly inviting, where it is only a minute from your water float to a local bar or cafe to cool down with a cocktail and a bite to eat. From sunrise to sunset, the beauty of tropical island setting will melt all your troubles away.
Island Tours: Even though Roatan is a relatively small island, there is plenty to see. Touring the island by boat or by land, visitors get to see and experience the real Roatan. Swing into a fishing village for a mangrove tour. View the lovely jungle hills and valleys across the island. Stop at a roadside cantina for a cold drink with some locals. Visit any of the eclectic restaurants on the island for a true culinary treat. This is a must for those who want to experience the real Roatan. Our Tip: Visit the French Key. Ltittle French Key is one of Roatan’s most interesting hangouts. Little French Key is first and foremost a private residence!, but you’ll never know it. They have a mini zoo, pristine beaches, a nice diving platform. The most photogenic spot on Roatan
Boat Charters/Fishing: Take advantage of the beautiful Caribbean water by getting on it! This is where some of the best memories are made, boating with family and friends. Whether it be a charter to a nearby island, a catamaran party cruise, a private sailing tour or a simple sunset cruise, you can’t go wrong. Visitors will also find deep sea fishing on Roatan a treat. Imagine hooking into a wahoo and finally landing the 40-pound fish after a long and tiring fight. Then imagine your captain fileting it up for you so you can take it to the grill of your vacation rental or the kitchen of the local bar so you can enjoy your own catch. It doesn’t get better (or fresher!) than that.
