Lush Roatan is the largest of the Bay Islands that lie some 30 miles off the Caribbean coast of Honduras. Roatan is 40 miles long and 4 miles wide and offers a friendly and laid-back setting. Here you can enjoy the superb Tabyana beach at West Bay, the beautiful Half Moon Bay, ‘Dolphin Encounters’ at Anthony’s Key Resort and snorkelling and diving amid the Western Hemisphere’s most spectacular underwater reefs. The underwater environment is rich and extensive; reefs surround the islands, often within swimming distance of the shore. Caves and caverns are a common feature, with a wide variety of sponge and the best collection of pillar coral in the Caribbean. Several parts have been proposed as marine reserves.
