Sandy Bay Things to Do

    This is a small garden with some tropical trees like banana, teak etc... They also have 2 trails, a jungle trail which can be covered in 10 minutes, and a mountain trail which is a bit harder, but which gives great views over the shore (including Anthony's Key). Overall, I really recommend a visit if you are really enthousiastic about flowers and plants and an awesome view

    Entrance is 3 US$ pp.

    This is the view to the East from our little bit of beach. Sandy bay is a protected little area on the North West part of the island and is where most of the sand is on the island.

    Sandy Bay is not the best beach on the island but it is peaceful and the water is very calm most of the time.

    You can find fruit trees like mango, papaya and many different types of banana trees around the area. We are lucky enough to have 10 to 15 banana trees and 2 mango as well as some cashew trees.

    Most homes are built above the ground to protect it from bugs, weather and stuff like that. It is nice to know that if the waves come in they will go under the house and not through it.

    As with any place in the world there is always crime.
    Remember to lock you door at night and to secure your money and credit cards in a safe place.

    DO NOT leave things out in the open for the chance theif. Remember crime is everywhere and no place in the world can escape it.

    Favorite thing: The climate is warm, usually in the '80s. The dress for the entire island is very casual.
    Comfortable cool clothing, shorts, and lightweight pants are recommended.
    Even in the evening at better restaurants, the dress remains casual.

    There are mosquitoes and sand flies, but, if you use repellant, you should not be bothered.

    Hurricanes are few and far between, and Honduras is generally not in the path of large storms.

    Roatan enjoys tradewinds the majority of the year, which make the climate even more comfortable.
