In Honduras the beaches are sparsely populated, making them perfect for any honeymoon or private vacation. Enjoy the taste of fresh fish on the beach in Tela, or walk the white sands of Trujillo’s beautiful bay. Tour Omoa’s historic areas, then head to the beach for a rejuvenating swim. Utila beaches provide access to warm water for snorkeling and scuba diving, with plenty of underwater worlds to discover.
Honduras has 470 miles of white-sand beaches, an extensive network of national parks and reserves and more than 700 species of birds, including the Harpy eagle, one of the largest of its kind. Jaguars, pumas, ocelots, giant anteaters, tapir and mantled howler add to the appeal for wildlife lovers. If you need more of a reason to visit, the Bay Islands hold the second largest coral reef in the world.
Here are the most popular beaches to visit in Honduras:
Roatan has many first class resorts right on the beach, or a short walking distance to the pristine, white, sandy beaches that vacationers have come to expect on this island. Roatan is becoming more well-known world-wide, with daily flights from popular destinations.

Snorkeling at its finest. Cayos is surrounded with coral, and teeming with colorful fish and exotic underwater plants. Secluded Honduras beaches abound.
