Need a good beach

Recommended Posts



We decided to take advantage of the great deals and booked a cruise on Carnival Freedom in September. Does anyone have a good suggestion for a beach to relax or even an all inclusive beach.  Also, is a taxi still safe to take? Thanks guys!

There are a number of good beach clubs on West Bay Beach.  Keep reading this sub and you’ll find lots of information.  Taxis are unregulated on Roatan and, while likely safe, may present other challenges.  You’ll probably want to consider options like hiring a guide for the day or just booking at one of the resorts that provides transportation to and from.  Lots of information here about those options too.  I hope your cruise goes out in September.  We cancelled our’s aboard Liberty.  Just too soon for us.

Taxi information here.


Carnival docks at Mahogany Bay.  There's a beach right there. 5 minute walk. Not the best on the island,  but just to let you know it's there.

The ship will most likely have an excursion that goes to Tabayana Beach.  It's on West Bay and the entire stretch of West Bay is open. Great shore snorkeling.

They just had first case of covid-19 this weekend despite lockdown which had just been eased. Lock down again. Island may not open for cruise ships till late fall. My son has home there, no idea when they can go back, were hoping July but now doubt it

We love Bananarama beach. They offer great deals for cruise ships. They pick up and deliver at the pier. Great food, snorkel, and tours. Also great pizza. Google bananaramadive for info.
