Butterfly Garden Butterfly Garden Exquisite butterflies from around 20 species flit around in an enclosed part of the Butterfly Garden. This is also home to stunning hummingbirds, parrots and toucans. A short 5 minute walk from the main entrance to West End Village.

West Bay Beach West Bay Beach At the very western tip of Roatan, about a mile past West End, lies West Bay Beach, a long curve of fine white sand. The beach has amazing coral reefs just 30 yards offshore for fantastic snorkeling. Alternatively try out water sports such as sea kayaking, scuba-diving and sailing. There's a small selection of restaurants and bars. Be prepared for large crowds on cruise ship days.

Gumbalimba Park Gumbalimba Park Gumbalimba Park is an exciting mixture of animal preserve, botanical garden and beach. Play with parrots and monkeys, ride a zip-line through the jungle, kayak the stunning reef, eat at a pool-side bbq, or relax at a lounger on the beach. Gumbalimba Park is located near West Bay.

Mahogany Bay Beach doorstep attraction (easy walk or less than 5mile-8km taxi/bus ride from port)(Carnival) Mahogany Bay Beach <i>(Carnival)</i> About two miles east of Coxen Hole lies Mahogany Bay, a purpose-built cruise resort (Carnival ships dock here). A chair-lift whisks you from the cruise terminal area to nearby Mahogany Bay Beach (or you can walk in about 10 minutes). The beach makes a great place to chill out for the day. If you want to venture further, access to public transport requires a walk out of the resort area up to the top of the hill to reach the impromptu taxi rank.
