Utila is a fantastic  destination for your family vacation! Divers enjoy wild dolphins encounters almost daily along with wrecks, reefs, rays, whale sharks, big boils of tuna and over 130 different species of fish just off the house reef. Utila is truly a multi- generational family dive vacation.

Getting there: You can book your flight into SAP (San Pedro)  and we will book the private charter over to Utila for you at a cost of $240 pp which will be paid on island at the end of your week.  You can arrive into RTB (Roatan) and we will book the private charter over to Utila $200pp, or you can book regular scheduled air on one of the local carriers, such as Island air or Taca.  There is a ferry service, but we don’t recommend it as the crossing can be quite rough. Give Margo a call and she will be very happy to assist you.
 Diving: An incredibly friendly staff, Trevor and Troy Jr., Captain, Waggy, Josh, Devon and Edith will treat you like family. Captain Kerri will take you to his mom’s house on the key each day for homemade snacks between dives and find dolphins for you to jump in and swim with along the way. The kids enjoy daily horseback riding on the beach and diving with new found friends each morning. The favorite activity is diving as a family every afternoon.
Adults and kids can enjoy photographing the seahorses, just off the dock, and volleyball on a beautiful white sand beach outside of your room. There is something for everyone as non divers and divers can participate in Yoga classes on Tuesdays and Thursday afternoons.
Lucy, from the Utila Whale shark foundation, gives a fantastic whale shark presentation. Margo Peyton enriches the week with photos and videos that every family will enjoy. Don’t miss out on this exclusive, hidden jewel, tucked away and unassuming, it is the perfect island getaway for families.
Welcome to Laguna Beach on the island of Utila.

Utila, located in the Bay Islands of Honduras, is a true treasure. I have been diving here since 1997. Laguna Beach  is owned and operated by Troy Bodden & family.

Troy is a loyal friend, a great dad,an accomplished diver and an amazing visionary. He is environmentally conscious and has worked hard to make Laguna Beach a divers paradise. This resort maintains  a high quality of service with a strong focus on safety and education.Troy’s efforts and influence are clearly visible within the resort and throughout the local community of Utila.

The three mile by seven mile island of Utila is set between a fringing coral reef and a 2000 feet deep continental shelf. Utila sits on top of the second largest fringing coral reef in the world. The positioning of the island makes it a Mecca for divers. Utila is also famous for its frequent whale shark encounters, which occur throughout the year. Utila offers pristine snorkeling, fishing for tarpon and bone-fish and horseback ridding.

This elegantly designed property is set on a palm fringed peninsula, dividing a tranquil mangrove lagoon and the warm Caribbean Sea. This quaint resort provides an abundance of privacy with bungalow style accommodations nestled on the lagoons edge and situated for a perfect view of Utila’s tropical sunset. The beautiful ocean view restaurant and bar, built from natural woods, continues the resort’s rustic theme that compliments the island ambiance Utila is famous for. The outer banks are home to dolphin and more than the occasional whale shark.

We invite you to explore our tropical paradise . . . where nature abounds.
