Calabash Shores - Roatan
Below a chart of the Mesoamerican Reef Eco-region
The Belize barrier reefs an overnight trip from Roatan for most vessels, making the natural harbor of Calabash Bight an ideal base to explore the regions
For more sophisticated services, such as airport, doctors, attorneys & business, etc....it is a 20 minute ride to French Harbor or 30 minutes to Coxen Hole. If you don't have a vehicle, there are cabs at BJ's. Much of the time we coordinate a ride with one of our neighbors.
The neighbors in Calabash Bight are all very friendly & helpful. There are several American homeowners, at least 2 Canadian homeowners & everyone kind of looks out for each other. One couple runs a tourist/cruise-line-driven business w/ their 2-50' catamarans, from the bight.
There is amazing fishing, snorkeling, diving & spear-fishing right outside the entrance to the bight. Fishing licenses are not required for shore-line, flat or deep sea fishing. It is common to go snorkeling on the reef & have local Caribbean lobster for dinner.
