Adventure Description

Adventure Description

Pro Contributor

Half Moon Bay, located within Roatan’s West End, is a beach area that offers the ideal island experience: snorkeling, diving, kayaking, submarine rides, floating docks, beachside bars, and more. Since there is no fee to access Half Moon Bay, you will find a mix of local islanders looking to simply cool off and international travelers that have come for the world-renowned scuba diving. Even if you are not a scuba diver, the destination is a must see on the island, as the extensive list of amenities offers something for family members of all ages and levels of physical activity.

In addition to the activities in and around Half Moon Bay, this is a great location to catch a sunset because it is on the west side of the island. Also, the various bars and restaurants along the beach light up once the sun goes down, and Half Moon Bay transforms itself from a diving and snorkeling base into a lively night scene. 

Roatan Logistics

The island of Roatan is most commonly accessed by a flight from mainland Honduras or from Houston, Texas. There is only one airport on the island, so any visitor that is not arriving by boat will start from this centrally located point. Because the island is small (less than 50 miles from end to end), taking a taxi from the airport to your residence is likely the most efficient and cost-effective option. Popular destinations such as West Bay and West End will have options for vehicle rentals at a reasonable price.
