The island is located close to Caribbean's largest barrier reef (also ranked world's 2nd largest) - Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. Roatan is Honduras' main cruise ship, scuba diving and eco-tourism travel destination. Island's economy is heavily based on tourism, followed by commercial fshing.

Isla Roatan is served by Juan Manuel Galvez Airport (international and domestic flights) and by the Galaxy Wave ferry (460-passenger fast catamaran offering twice a day service to La Ceiba). Roatan Airport connects to mainland Honduras (La Ceiba, San Pedro Sula), Costa Rica (San Jose), Panama City, Belize City, Grand Cayman, Canada (Quebec City, Montreal, Toronto), USA (Miami, Houston, Atlanta), Guatemala (San Salvador, Guatemala City).

The island is popular for its beaches (West End, Camp Bay), crystal water, all-year sunny weather, clear blue skies. Discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1502, Roatan was famous for housing over 5,000 buccaneers (pirates), the most popular of whom were Captain John Coxen and Sir Henry Morgan.

Roatan Marine Park is a community-based, non-profit organization, established in 2005 by local businesses and dive operators to protect the surrounding coral reefs. Roatan Institute for Marine Sciences (RIMS) was founded in 1989 to preserve the island's natural resources through research and education. RIMS is in Sandy Bay and features over 50 km (30 mi) of barrier reefs, mangroves and seagrass beds. All reef systems throughout Bay Islands are protected by the government and helped by charitable donations.
