Bay Islands holidays

Lying in the Caribbean Sea off the northern coast of Honduras, the Bay Islands comprise three main islands, Roatán, Utila and Guanaja, and numerous smaller cayes. The islands offer palm-fringed sandy beaches and superb snorkelling on the reefs, which extend south from Belize. The original population of these islands declined after the Spanish conquest and the islands became bases for pirates such as Henry Morgan. Today, the population is culturally distinct from the mainland and is largely made up of Garifuna, descendents of English-speaking freed slaves from St Vincent
