The reality is even better than the dream. Roatan forms part of the Bay Islands of Honduras, a Caribbean archipelago located off the North coast of Honduras, where there are actually three major islands: Roatan, Guanaja and Utila. There are also two smaller islands, Helene and Barbareta, which are located off the east end of Roatan, in addition to 70 smaller cays and atolls. The Cayos Cochinos or Hog Islands also form part of the Bay Islands, but are located closer to the Honduran mainland.
The islands are enveloped by a spectacular barrier reef and warm waters, and have long been an international scuba diving destination for shallow diving, snorkeling, and also wall diving and deep diving outside the reef wall. Roatan, the largest island, is about thirty miles long and two miles across at its widest. A mountain ridge runs through the center of the island with the tallest peak rising about 800 feet. The rolling hills covered by lush foliage offer spectacular ocean vistas.
