For some people, the ideal vacation is had by simply relaxing, reading a good book under the shade of a coconut tree on a beautiful private beach, swimming in the clear Caribbean or taking a dip in the pool, and getting a good tan (with or without tanlines). Other people, in addition to the above, add some activities like snorkeling, hiking, scuba diving, sea kayaking, island exploration, hitting some local bars, and so on. No matter what floats your vacation boat, you can find it at Paya Bay!
The phenomenal dive sites of Roatan's East End, as well as the islands of Santa Helena, Morat, and Barbaretta begin minutes from Paya Bay!
At Paya Bay snorkelers are treated like V.I.P.s. Whether you opt to snorkel right from shore or you take the snorkel boat out, you will have many opportunities to explore the reef.
More and more of our guests are coming to Paya Bay specifically to enjoy our au naturel options. The property has three distinct zones for every comfort level. Discover and enjoy this freedom!
The East End of Roatan is still largely undeveloped, resulting in most of this half of the island still being in pristine and natural condition.
As you stroll along the nature paths at Paya Bay, first you will hear their beautiful and varied songs, then you will see them: beautiful tropical birds!
Surrounded and protected by our barrier reef, Roatan is great for sea kayaking. The relatively calm waters inside the reef offer interesting shoreline and beautiful turquoise areas for swimming.
The world of the flats is the world of bonefish, tarpon, permit, mutton snapper, seatrout, stripers, and a host of other prime game fish.
We have a variety of activities, tours, and excursions you can choose from if you would like to add more adventure to your Paya experience.
