Half Moon Bay in West End, Roatan
Sun Divers is the only dive center to be located on the beach of beautiful Half Moon Bay in West End, Roatan. We reside in the shade of the palm trees between the world famous Sundowners Beach Bar and the yellow Beach House. A bounty of world-class dive sites are but a couple minutes boat ride from our doorstep.
There are plenty of activities for the family to do if they are not divers. The shallow bay offers an abundance of sheltered snorkeling sites and even a small submarine sunk in the middle to explore. Paddle boards are also available for rent and offer an alternative way to see the bay. Half Moon Bay faces due west and our sunsets are legendary so come dive, relax and have some fun!
