Paradise for the Active and Laid Back

Get your adrenaline pumping or kick back and relax. From breathtaking beaches and glistening blue bays to thrilling adventure activities, The Beach House has something for any desire.

Scuba Diving

The scuba diving opportunities are exciting on Roatán for both the novice diver and the advanced explorer. If you are not a certified diver, we highly recommend that you consider a “discover scuba diving” experience. If you fall in love with the great blue, the cost counts towards your PADI certification.  It is just a half day, and you will not be disappointed!

If you are looking for a great local dive shop, we highly recommend Roatán Divers or our great neighbors Sun Divers. Here is a little about both shops:

Sun Divers is located right next to The Beach House, so you can wake up, walk-out your door, and GO DIVING! With this amazing crew, you will feel like you are diving amongst friends. They are truly committed to making your experience a great and personalized one with exceptional teachers and their laid back, casual vibe. You will be sure to have some thrilling adventures with them! Go and check out their amazing reviews on Tripadvisor. If you are interested in diving with SD, please let us know and we will get you in contact, or you can book directly with them at diving@sundiversroatan.com

Roatán Divers are a truly boutique-style dive shop, focused on top quality service, personal attention, safety, comfort and environmental responsibility. Roatan Divers are a quick five-minute walk along the beach in Half Moon Bay from the hotel. They boast some really amazing reviews as well! If you would like to contact them in advance to make arrangements for your diving, please let us know and we can get you in contact, or e-mail them at info@roatandivers.com


Half Moon Bay–literally just steps from The Beach House–boasts some of the best snorkeling in Roatán.  Part of a protected marine park, our guests regularly see rays, sea turtles, eels, lobsters, crabs, barracuda, seargent majors, and more. Some have even been lucky enough to be enjoying drinks at The Dock Bar and see a school of tarpon just off of the dock.

Cost:  Free!  Bring your own gear, or if you prefer, we have Mares gear at The Beach House available (in various sizes) for rent for USD$5 per day.

Dolphin Encounters

There are various types of interaction with the dolphins.  You don’t need to be able to swim, and the activity can include people of all ages.  You will be taken to dolphin’s island, home to a large family of Atlantic Bottlenose dolphins.

Where:  Dophin’s Island in Bailey’s lagoon (a short trip from The Beach House).

Cost:   From $89 per person.  Transportation included.

Deep Sea Submarine Adventure

Roatán is home to the world’s deepest tourist submarine. Built and piloted by Karl Stanley, “Idabel” takes up to two passengers to over 2000 feet below the surface–there is literally nowhere else in the world that you could do this.  In this cold, pitch-dark space you’ll meet some of the strangest creatures ever seen by the human eye, including the six-gill shark.

Where: The Idabel is located in Half Moon Bay, within sight of and just as short walk from The Beach House.

Cost:  Starting at $500 per person.

Sailing & Cayos Cochinos

There are a number of catamarans, fishing boats and yachts that can be chartered for the afternoon, a sunset cruise, the day–or even longer.  Most trips include food, alcohol and snorkeling.

One popular option is a day sail to Port Royal, a historic site located on the east side of the island.  Another is a trip to Cayos Cochinos (literally, the “Pig Islands”), a group of islands between Roatán and mainland Honduras that offers unique opportunities above and below the water, including the opportunity to visit with the local Garifuna tribe that resides on one of the small cays.

Cost: From $180 per person; less for sunset cruises and shorter excursions.


Roatán is well-known for its fishing and is home to one of the largest annual fishing tournaments in the world.  In addition to deep-sea fishing (wahoo, mahi-mahi and black fin tuna are frequently caught, and more occasionally yellow fin tuna, blue marlin and sailfish are seen), flats fishing excursions are available for those more interested in bonefishing.

Where:  The deep waters offshore or the shallow “flats” located in various areas around the island.

Cost:  From $350 for half day.


See the island from a different perspective!

There are a number of options, most just a short ride from The Beach House.

Cost:  From $50 per person.

Mangrove Tours

Take a trip to the east side of the island (we recommend doing this in conjunction with an island tour), where you can jump on a panga and paddle through the mangroves, which provide a vitally important ecosystem for the island.

Where: Oak Ridge.

Cost:  Roughly $20 per person; haggle for the best price (but keep in mind that this is how people make a living).

Golf at The Black Pearl

What: an 18-hole, par 72, 7200-yard champtionship golf course offering stunning vistas of the Caribbean from every hole (one of which features one of Dye’s signature island greens).  The Black Pearl includes a driving range and a putting green.

Where:  Pristine Bay.

Cost:  Beginning at $65 for 9 holes; $105 for 18 holes.  Club and cart rentals available.
