We stayed on West Bay Beach for a week. We also drove the entire island. This beach is the cleanest, calmest and most beautiful one on the island.

At the end of this beach where Grand Roatan Resort is, its GREAT!. From what I see the rest of the beach is jammed with peddlers and crowed vacation people. You can find many dive and snorkel merchants everywhere on this beach.
