* '''East end''', if you are up for an adventure, visit the east end of the island past Oak Ridge to Camp Bay Beach the largest of all the Bay Island beaches.  The road changes from pavement to dirt/gravel mix and continues on to Punta Blanca and Camp Bay.  A 4x4 vehicle is not required for the journey and you'll see many driving compact cars and scooters.  This end of the island is home to many locals and some expats as well as a few resorts, one that needs to be mentioned is Camp Bay Beach Beach Adventure Lodge wich is the only resort on Camp Bay Beach. It is also the home of the Tasty Tarpon restaurant and a place to gain free access to the beach with free parking and a depot for your east end adventure from snorkeling/ diving to fly fishing and Mangrove Forest boat or kayak tours.  There are a few other interesting stops along the way such as Marble Hill Farms where wonderful local jams & jellies are made.  Asylum bar & grill is on a palapa literally over the calm waters in Camp Bay which can sometimes feel like the restaurant at the end of the universe after the long journey of getting there.  Luckily these places always have beer on ice and grilled food which makes the trip worth it.  If you're looking to get off the beaten path and out of the tourist ridden West End, this is it.

Santa Helena located in Roatans municipal of Santos Guardiola, is a small secluded island 12 miles further east of Roatan. This off 'the beaten path' beautiful tropical paradise is a one mile by two mile island that is sparsely populated with indigenous people that still live life as it was in the 'Old Caribbean', unspoiled and uncommercialized from tourist related development, without electricity or government subsidised infrastructure. St. Helene is the epitome of a 'sleepy little fishing village'. Access to Helene is by private boat or passenger ferry service from Oak Ridge.
