A pier extends into the Roatan Marine Preserve. It's great for just laying back in hammocks while sipping cocktails in the ocean breezes. Relax and watch the day go by! The upper level can be used for private sunbathing. Each night, from the dock you can enjoy spectacular sunsets. Have you observed the green flash just as the sun sets?

There are many activities just for relaxing or for the most active tourist. As one walks down the beach shells can be found. At the end is a large lagoon. Kayaks can be rented to guide you through the mangrove waterways or to view the crystal clear waters of the reef. The mangrove waterways lead to fishing flats areas excellent for bone fishing. Bring your fly rod and we'll point you in the right direction to our secret fishing holes or use our fishing guides or rental boats.
