If I am not mistaken, they now have a "ski lift" type gondola thingy that can take you from the port to the beach.
From Johns Blog...
" Just a quick follow up to a question about Isla Roatan and Mahogany Bay. A blogger had asked about a place where guests could go snorkeling on their own and the shore excursion manager on the Carnival Legend
has told me the following: “West End – is a touristy village with two beaches, West End Beach and Half Moon Bay Beach. Half Moon Bay is a great place for snorkeling. 15 Minutes from the Pier and $25.00 a person approximate taxi fare for round trip. ”
There you go, and don’t forget if you are going to Isla Roatan not to miss out on one of our excursions to Gumbalimba Park. You must see the monkeys and the wildlife and soak up the spectacular scenery. The park also has hundreds of parrots that although wild, will come and shit………..sorry…………..sit on your head."
