Shopping in the West End

Affectionately called “the strip,” most of West End’s businesses are located along one main sandy roadway. Stroll along the strip and find the perfect souvenir for your friends and family back home, or simply treat yourself to something special.

  • The Roátan Chocolate Factory
    A local, small-scale chocolate company focused on giving back to the community and protecting the rainforest their cacao comes from. Stop into the factory, bakery, and coffee shop for a special treat.

  • Booknook
    Purchase or rent an enticing read for your stay on the island, or trade in one of your own books for a discount. You’ll also find puzzles, games, movies, and some jewelry and clothing handmade by the Canadian owners available for purchase.

  • BeachKind Boutique
    Don’t worry about leaving your sunblock or swimsuit wrap at home. Grab all of your beach essentials and stock up on souvenirs at this luxury boutique located right on Half Moon Bay.

West End Nightlife

As the sun sets over the island, West End Village comes to life with a flurry of activity. Drink specials and famous island cocktails like the Monkey La La get the party started while live bands, DJs, karaoke nights, and lounge restaurants keep the fun going.

Deliver your best dance moves at an open-air club with the Caribbean breeze to keep you cool, enjoy the ocean beneath your feet at an over-the-water hotspot, or relax with a glass of wine and a Honduran cigar on a patio lounge. Stop by local favorites including Blue Marlin, a bar lounge and restaurant with live entertainment, and The Booty Bar over the water, named for the island’s pirate heritage.

Photography, fashion, folk art, and other handmade items for sale support fair trade organizations and local artist co-ops.
