Activities, Attractions, & Things to Do in Roatan

At Anthony’s Key, you can soak up every opportunity to explore Roatan. Or just settle back, relax, and drink it all in. Whether you’re an athletic explorer or a sedentary sojourner, we have an activity for you. If you wish to stay close to your home base, glide around our tranquil lagoon in your kayak or stand-up paddle to nearby Bailey’s Key and enjoy lazing on the sequestered beach. Enjoy local music and cultural dances during our Island Fiesta Night or sample signature cocktails at the Frangipani Bar. Blissful treatments at Ixora Spa and lounging poolside are other onsite diversions. At Anthony’s Key, you can do it all. Or nothing at all!

Things to do At Anthony’s Key Resort


We offer any combination of Scuba courses desired to meet your personalized training needs and schedule — from Discover Scuba to Instructor! Additionally, as a PADI Career Development Center, we offer vocational-oriented and continuing education training, preparing individuals for dive industry careers.

Swim With Dolphins

Dolphins seem to top just about everyone’s “favorite animal” list, and it’s no wonder— these gentle mammals are friendly and intelligent and are known for their agility and playful behavior! While in Roatan, you’ll have the rare opportunity to interact with Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins in a natural sea-water environment.


The waters inside the resort’s lagoon are calm most days of the year, and kayaking is a great way to spend an afternoon after diving or snorkeling. Explore the resort with a leisurely paddle in the lagoon, or head over to Bailey’s Key for some time on a cozy beach.


Try an above-the-water sport at Anthony’s Key with Stand-up Paddleboarding, or ‘SUP’ for short. This fun way to enjoy the ocean allows you to glide across the water on large surf-style boards and long paddles to enjoy a 360-degree view only achieved while standing upright.

Kayaks and stand-up paddle boards are included in all stays at Anthony’s Key Resort and can be used during daylight hours.


Explore quaint Bailey’s Key, a prime spot for snorkeling along its serene western shores. Dive into a unique encounter at our dolphin lagoon, home to friendly and intelligent dolphins. Freshwater showers, changing facilities, and restrooms are centrally located for your comfort.

Enjoy OUr Fresh-water Swimming Pool

At the center of Anthony’s Key is our 30′ x 60′ in-ground swimming pool, hidden among towering palms and a short walk from stilted bungalows on the perimeter of the secluded eight-acre island. The four-foot-deep freshwater pool is perfect for swimming laps or relaxing after a day’s adventure. Sit and soak in the pool’s built-in perimeter seating or lounge chairs at the pool’s edge.

MAYA Key Private Island

Relax under a coconut canopy, enjoy a delicious picnic lunch, and tour the animal sanctuary. This beautiful key also offers two secluded beaches, excellent snorkeling from a scenic pier, a 70,000-gallon swimming pool, 5,000 square foot lounge deck, and lush garden paths bursting with indigenous flora.


Enjoy muscle-soothing massages and be invigorated with other exquisite treatments when you book a service at Ixora Spa: massages, full-body wraps, miraculous facials, and the most luxurious spa pedicures and manicures. The spa features two massage rooms, a facial room, and a nail-care lounge dedicated to spa pedicures and manicures.


During this tour, you’ll ride through Sandy Bay and wave to the locals as you pass through. Then, enjoy an exciting gallop along the beach, where you’ll have the opportunity to try a few trots. This ride is all about enjoying the scenery and being in the saddle. Join us for some amazing riding!


An amazing adventure awaits you in the natural rainforest of Gumbalimba Park. This fascinating trip through the canopy rainforest allows you to see the island’s natural flora and wildlife. You’ll have a blast on this exhilarating and ecological zip-line adventure above the canopy of Roatan.
