Roatan's East End



An overview of Roatan’s East End.


Roatan’s East End is an island living the way it used to be. The region is sparsely populated and features lush forests, cattle ranches, fishing villages and some of the island’s most interesting and off the beaten path resorts and restaurants. The journey begins just outside the town of French Harbor when you pass through a quaint ramshackle village with represents the gateway to the East End. A well-maintained mountaintop road meanders some 15 miles across the central spine of the island and offers stunning views of both the northern and southern coasts of Roatan. Along the way, you’ll spot signs pointing away to picturesque hamlets like the expat community of Politilly Bight and Jonesville, a small fishing village which was established way back in the 1800s.



Formidable. I’ve stood exactly in that spot and to be honest the image doesn’t do it justice. Guanaja appears much much closer when viewed in real life.


I really enjoy taking friends and guests East. When you hit the top of the ridge the jungle begins to take on a total different island as you overlook the ocean on both sides. Sunday evening at Punta Gorda is a fun way to chill.
