Swim out past the rock and you will find the best snorkel spot!!! Eels, octopus, barracuda, tons of fish. Plus we had the reef to ourselves each time we went.

We stopped and ate at Blue Bahia (I think it is called). The food is great and the little resort looks lovely. The beach here is in a beautiful bay and would be a great place to hang out. But you are trapped there unless...More

Not so great beach. The only benefit is if you have a kayak, you can get out to the reef system. But for the most part, it is sand fly ridden and full of trash, with raw sewage run off going straight to the ocean....More

Want to get away from the hustle and bustle of West End or West Bay? Then find a place on Sandy Bay Beach. I would recommend SeaDancer Villas.

We were here for an afternoon. We rented some chairs and swam at the beach. The sand is beautiful white and the water is a gradual drop off. Centrally located by many things to do.

It's not bad, but not amazing. There are more beautiful beaches in Roatan. But it was still nice to have a rest there. The water was good, but not so clear.

The reef is about 100 yards off shore all along Sandy Bay. You should be able to swim out to the reef no matter where you are staying. Any where along the reef will be good for snorkling. In many places the water is only... More
