Beach Break Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Just took a taxi to Paradise Beach. $15 cab ride for 10 minutes, $2 per person for a lounger at the beach and a GREAT, warm, clean pool to rinse off in. Great sand for young kids to play in, sandy beach entrance for kids, with a little drop off, but still safe... surf got a little choppy in the afternoon, so we hit the pool.

Stayed on ship. Didn't book an excursion and that seems to be the only reason you'd get off here...there were no attractive enough excursion options for young kids.

Mahogany Bay / Roatan - this has to be a family favorite. You can go cheap and stay at the lovely beach right beside the ship, or take a taxi / tour to the West Bay Beach and see a little of the island. We have done both, but this time we spent $80 on a tour / taxi to West Bay. You can get there cheaper and take a basic taxi, or you can do a personalized tour and pick and chose what you want to do. We ended up personalizing a tour but we loved our first stop at west bay beach so much, we stayed there all day and didn't bother making any other stops on the way back to the ship. For families with small kids, the Mahogany bay beach is a GREAT option, but if you want a "little" adventure, go to West Bay beach, it an interesting drive and the beach is the nicest around!

Do NOT stay at the pier area...although it is lovely, take a taxi to Majahual / boardwalk area. Its easy, fast, cheap and safe. If you are unsure, just take a quick 5 minute cab ride to the town and spend an hour on the beach / restaurants and return to the pier when you want. You probably will choose to spend more time on the beach than one hour, but it doesn't cost much money and time to check it out. We have always returned to spend a few final minutes at the pier area shops, pool and bar.
