Roatan Snorkeling

When you're this close to the second largest reef system in the world, is it any wonder that snorkeling is a big deal? Tabyana Beach is the only place in West Bay where you can literally walk off the beach and hit the reef channel within 70 feet - closer than any other beaches in Roatan.

Whether beginner or experienced, snorkelers can feast their eyes on eels, purple anemone, sea turtles, starfish, and other sea life in warm, clear turquoise waters. In fact, there are 2 adorable sea turtles that visit us regularly, eating grass and other vegetation off the pilings near the beach. Take advantage of our guided snorkeling tours or enjoy self-paced exploration of our beautiful underwater world. We do provide snorkel gear rentals at an extra cost, if required.

Please note that it is against the law to touch or stand on the coral. Reef preservation is important to us, and we are committed to preserving this natural treasure for all to enjoy. Please tread carefully and respect the fragile ecosystem.

Roatan SNUBA & Helmet Diving

Get ready to try out Roatan SNUBA at Tabyana Beach! The best of both worlds, SNUBA bridges the gap between snorkeling and diving and is a perfect activity for children and adults alike, requiring no certification. Explore Roatan's spectacular underwater world via a 20 foot air line connected to a standard scuba tank on the water's surface. The tank moves with you, and you get to breathe underwater without the constraints of heavy dive gear.

Take it one step further, and you can literally walk on the ocean floor without even getting your face wet on a guided Sea Trek helmet diving adventure tour. It's called "helmet diving" for a reason - guests are fitted with an ergonomic helmet that, again, lets them breathe underwater without the need for specialized training. It's kind of like being an astronaut underwater, only without the full jump suit. It might be time to make your dreams come true, under the surface.

Beach Bar & Grill

Step onto our incredible beach to the smell of chicken on the grill. Our menu includes American-standard classics, like BBQ chicken, hamburgers, hotdogs & fresh-squeezed lemonade as well as Roatan Island favourites, such as island beans and rice cooked with coconut milk. No matter your personal preferences, satiate your appetite with delicious, fresh, tropical cooking and libations.

Come experience a one day destination dream with fun, relaxation, & killer views at one of the best beaches in Roatan.
