Overview
More
The property is unique to Roatan. Just off the main road to a private beach area. This area is part of the Roatan Marine Park preserve. The reef system parallels the white sand beach of Sandy Bay The closiest swim to a underwater ecologial paradise teaming with tropical fish and corals. This area is a quiet tranquil area of Roatan without high end hotels and condos but close to the tourist meccas.

We were lucky to rent a beachfront homestead sunnySide right on Sandy Bay. The sunsets were breathtaking. We are sure coming back. Close enough to West end but far from the noise. Loved Sandy Bay Beach 🏖

Found a quaint little private house directly in front of the most impressive snorkeling I have probably ever done. The beach is beautiful and sandy and quiet. However, not so great for swimming from the shore. If you can go off the end of one...More

If you can afford a private house or bungalow, this is a great area. You are just far enough out of town to avoid noise, etc. Taxis (Motuts) are very reasonably priced if you do not want to walk.

Sandy Bay Beach offers a quiet, calm alternative to the frenetic hordes of Cruise Shippers and Resort Goers at West Bay and the more laid-back but still busy West End. There is a big resort with activities (Anthony's Key) at one end but they largely...More

We went here for snorkeling and the reef fish are plentiful but the beach itself is not the best for swimming.

One of the best beaches on the island. Has boutique resorts. Low key, not as crowded. Reef is a swim 200 meters away with some of the best fish. Restaurants on the beach.

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
