7 Best Beaches in Roatan 

When visiting Roatan, your cruise ship will stop at either Coxen Hole or Mahogany Bay. Many restaurants and shops accept United States currency, and although the island’s official language is Spanish, many people speak English, especially in tourist areas. But beyond exploring the towns, you’ll surely want to explore the island’s beaches, which are like no other.

Here are seven beautiful Roatan beaches you can visit on a Windstar cruise.

Sandy Bay Beach

1. Sandy Bay Beach

Are you looking for a place to relax away from the crowds? If so, Roatan’s Sandy Bay Beach is the ultimate destination. There are plenty of opportunities for sightseeing on Sandy Bay Beach, from galloping along the sand to soaring above the treetops. Sandy Bay is located toward the western end of the island and features miles of pristine beaches. Plus, the beach is just a short swim to the living coral reef. 

Part of the Roatan Marine Park Preserve, Sandy Bay Beach is a quiet, tranquil area of Roatan close to the tourist meccas without the high-end condos and hotels. Enjoy a day of snorkeling, ziplining or adventuring at Sandy Bay’s monkey-sloth park. The beach also offers buggy tours, guided boat tours and an opportunity to swim with dolphins. Sandy Bay Beach is home to some of the Caribbean’s best restaurants, including Carambola Botanical Gardens and Trails and Blue Bahia Beach Grill.

2. Maya Key

Whatever your expectations in Roatan, you’ll find them in Maya Key, an 11-acre oasis of relaxation and fun. With two secluded beaches on the island, Maya Key is an excellent destination — especially when you’re looking for diving opportunities.

Would you prefer to spend your time at Maya Key on land? Try taking a stroll through the island’s expertly maintained gardens or heading to the animal sanctuary to get a peek into the local wildlife, including Honduras’ jungle cats, such as ocelots and jaguars, and exotic birds like monkeys, parrots, toucans and macaws.

3. West Bay Beach

West Bay Beach is one of Roatan’s finest beaches. The shoreline has everything you want and more from a Roatan destination — diverse underwater fauna, vivid scenery and multicolored corals. Enjoy the mesmerizing sounds of palm trees after a refreshing dip in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean.

West Bay has something for everyone. Whether you want to indulge in the catch of the day, relax in the shade or ride the surf, West Bay Beach is a Roatan beach destination unlike any other. What’s more, the beach has several diving outfitters, both resort-affiliated and independent, that can set you up with a memorable diving or snorkeling experience in the world’s second-longest reef system.

4. Tabyana Beach 

Enjoy a vacation at Tabyana Beach, one of Roatan’s most acclaimed beach spots. Soak in the extravagance of brilliantly colored coral and crystal clear waters at a place where the jungle meets powdered sand. A private section of West Bay replete with papaya and palm trees, lounge chairs and warm, inviting waters, Tabyana Beach is your go-to Roatan beach for snorkeling in the reefs. 

Revel in all the wonders of a place where almond, grape and coconut trees stand amid the turquoise waters of the Caribbean and an endless white sand beach.

5. Little French Key

A private and secure island, Little French Key is one of Roatan’s hottest island attractions. The remote island hosts a range of activities and is situated on the Bay islands of Roatan. Available water sports include paddle boarding, kayaking, diving and snorkeling. On land, you can enjoy horseback riding, a visit to the exotic zoo or a day of relaxation under your palapa.

6. Palm Beach

Palm Beach has all you could ask for — crystal clear water, a beautiful beach and all kinds of recreational activities, including horseback riding. Once on the beach, you’ll find fresh coconut huts to quench your thirst and plenty of seating. A friendly waiter from The Beach Club is always around to take your order.

Try the tastiest tropical drink on the island while basking in a hammock amid mango trees and a bird’s eye view of a lush tropical rainforest. During your visit to Palm Beach, you may catch a glimpse of island-famous three-toed sloths, capuchin monkeys, yellow-neck parrots or scarlet macaws. It’s worth bringing a camera so you can capture stunning photos of your surroundings.

Camp Bay Beach

7. Camp Bay Beach

Camp Bay Beach is a hidden gem — and the locals know it. Away from all the resorts and ports, Camp Bay Beach is the longest natural beach on the island, with more than 1 mile of turquoise water and white coral sand coastline.

Take the road less traveled to experience gorgeous crystal blue waters framed by white sand beaches. Enjoy organic, local island foods and drinks and scuba diving and snorkeling excursions that are never too far off.
