Activities, Attractions, & Things to Do in Roatan

Enjoy an Array of Exciting Activities for All Ages!

At Anthony’s Key, you can take every opportunity to explore Roatan or just settle back, relax, and take 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 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.

Want to venture out? Spend the day on a private island at Maya Key, with two secluded beaches, epic snorkeling, and a 70,000-gallon swimming pool. Then, take a canopy tour over the lush rainforest.

At Anthony’s Key, you can do it all. Or nothing at all!


Kayak in a Tranquil Roatan Lagoon at AKR

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 a day of diving or snorkeling. Explore the resort with a leisurely paddle in the lagoon.

Stand-Up Paddle

Stand-Up Paddle (SUP) on Calm Caribbean Waters

Try out an above-the-water sport while at Anthony’s Key with Stand-up Paddleboarding. This is a fun way to enjoy the ocean and glide across the water on large surf-style boards and long paddles, achieving a 360-degree view only achieved while standing upright. Stand-up paddling is so comfortable and relaxing that you won’t feel like you are doing a sport!
