Tabyana beach also called West Bay beach is always ranked in the top ten in the Caribbean. The snorkeling just off shore is exceptional ... A must see destination while on Roatan.

This beach is great for snorkeling! There are shallow spots of the reef so you have to be careful not to touch to prevent getting cut up and killing the corals. If you swim totally across the reef (not really that far) then you can...More

We are going on Norwegian in a couple of weeks. For two people it is $190 from the ship for a day at this beach. We had been thinking of just asking a taxi to take us to a beach with a restaurant and chairs. Any thoughts?

We will be traveling on Norwegian. Is there a separate charge for tide to the Tabyana Beach? Where would we meet bus? Are there scheduled return trips to bus?

My cruise ship, NCL Dawn does not offer this as an Excursion. Is it possible to visit if not booked through the ship? The Tabyana website seems to indicate it is not.
