Roatán, Honduras-port

Warm Caribbean waters with excellent diving, white sand beaches, and tropical sunsets are some of the attractions of the Bay Islands. Roatan’s major source of income is tourism, particularly because of SCUBA diving attractions. The underwater environment is rich and extensive with reefs surrounding the islands, often within swimming distance of the shore. Caves and caverns are a common feature, with a variety of sponge and the best collection of pillar coral.

Big French Key Beach Escape

Light Activity /Walking

Duration: 4 hours

Tour Code: ROA-014

Relax on the beach at Big French Key, a lush private island lying in the shadow of Roatan, where you will be free to enjoy the tranquility and beautiful blue waters.

After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a picturesque drive across slender Roatan to French Key dock. You will see idyllic Little French Key and Big French Key beckoning just offshore. A short ride across the turquoise waters in a motorboat takes you to the larger of the private islands, where you will spend several immensely relaxing hours at the beach.

Big French Key hasn’t changed enormously since Christopher Columbus explored the surrounding Bay Islands in 1503 and described them as “incredibly green and fertile.” While a few buildings are scattered about Big French Key, the nearly 12-acre island remains a lush, beach-rimmed paradise caressed by gentle trade winds.

Life here revolves around the sea, and you are free to enjoy it in whatever way you wish. You might take a refreshing dip in the crystal-clear water, meander down the beach as the waves gently lap the shore, or do nothing more ambitious than sunbathing in a beach chair.

Palm trees and other tropical foliage provide plenty of shade, where you can read or listen to island music from the outdoor bar. There is also a restaurant, where you may linger over lunch and a cool beverage on your own.

After a few hours relaxing, you will retrace your route back to the pier.

Please note: Walking on this tour is mainly at the guests' discretion. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach, and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Swimwear under a cover-up; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; towel; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Those participating in any water activities do so at their own risk and responsibility. During certain times, the surrounding water currents may deposit seaweed on the beach.
