West End (H) - Honduras
West End is situated at the western end on the north side of lush Roatan, the largest of the Bay Islands that lie some 40 miles off the Caribbean coast of the Honduras. It is a tranquil little village on a fantastic bay with magnificent beaches, all part of a marine and wildlife reserve. It is the budget travellers favourite location with many small hotels nestled in the trees within walking distance of the fabulous beaches. Here you can enjoy the superb Tabyana Beach, 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.
