A reef-side retreat off Honduras
A mere 40 miles off the beachy shores of northern Honduras in the Western Caribbean lies this island escape—the largest island in the country's Bay Of Islands. Roughly 40 miles top to bottom and three miles wide, it has a storied history featuring pirates, sailors and European colonization. Today, it's a shimmering tropical island getaway where luxury resorts like Kimpton Grand Roatán Resort & Spa dot its postcard beaches. The island's fantastic tropical climate, lush palms and beachy vibe attract travelers looking for paradise personified. And its location along the world's second-largest barrier reef means some of Central America's best snorkeling and diving can be done from its pristine shores.
