Roatan snorkelling is easy! There are over 100 dive and snorkelling sites around the island and several places are accessible directly from the beach. Just a few metres offshore you will see fan coral, brain coral, sea turtles, sting rays, moray eels and dozens of colourful fish. In fact, every time you slip on your flippers, you’ll likely see something different! The calm, protected, shallow waters around West Bay Beach and West End and Half Moon Bay are ideal for first time snorkelers. Rental equipment is available in West Bay Beach and West End.
Travel Tip: Always be mindful of the reefs and check with the Marine Park Office for ways to minimize your impact on the coral. Also see reef etiquette and tips.
