The Bay Islands

Ideal length

Transfer time

Located in amongst the second longest barrier reef in the world the Bay Islands are, for many, the main reason for visiting Honduras.  Its spectacular coral-reef systems are home to some 96% of all species of marine life known to inhabit the Caribbean!  Clear and calm waters with an average temperature of 28 degrees make viewing easy and pleasant.

OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN THE BAY ISLANDS

WEST END

This is a lively area of the island where a large number of restaurants and bars are situated. There is a small area of beach here at Half Moon Bay and the hotels here are more mid range/economy. Guests can drive or get water taxis from here to West Bay

SANDY BAY

Just up the coast from West Bay and West End is Sandy Bay. This is the quietest area where hotels are spread along the coast, thus enjoying a more private and remote location away from other hotels.  The beaches here are quiet and less populated

WEST BAY

A large, beautiful beach area, lined with hotels and restaurants. It is quieter than West End and tends to be more resort hotel orientated. The drawback is that it can get very busy with charter flight groups and cruise ship passengers.
