West End Roatan has so much to offer.
You'll find it on the
northwestern end of the island, it's the place to be when visiting this
barefoot island in the Caribbean.
Located along the perfectly shaped crescent beach of Half Moon Bay, the village of West End has plenty of activities I discovered, including restaurants, bars, scuba shops, gift boutiques, and artist galleries.
Here are some of the fun and exciting things I found to do in the West End during my vacation to Roatan, Honduras.
Embrace the Culture of West End Village – Often referred to as the main “strip” in West End Roatan, West End Village is where you can find eclectic shops, fishing charters, restaurants, and scuba diving trips.
Whether you have a sweet tooth or not, you have to stop in at the Roatan Chocolate Factory for 3 reasons.
1. The company's main
goal is to give back to the local indigenous communities and protect the Rainforest where the cacao comes from.
2. Their chocolate has health benefits (100% pure and organic) as it is all hand made in small batches, with no artificial flavors, fillers, colors or preservatives.
The cacao in the chocolate is known to help with things such as: cardiac and stroke protection, ease PMS symptoms, improve brain functioning and just make you feel good.
3. It is the best chocolate you will have tasted in your life.
At night, West End Village comes alive with activity and offers bands and entertainment, restaurant deals, lively Happy Hours, and plenty to keep you engaged throughout the night.
