Barbareta Island, assigned the status of Barbareta Marine National Park, has miles of splendid isolated beaches, lush tropical forest, exotic fauna and remote hiking trails. It is only three and a half miles long with Bongus Hill the highest point of the island with views all across the different bays. Other sights include Barbareta Beach, a Parrot Reserve, Jade Beach and a small Mayan archaeological site. There is an airport near Pelican Point, Barbareta's south point, but most visitors arrive by boat from Roatan. The only resort on the privately owned island is Barbareta Beach Club, next to West End Beach, which can provide different types of lodging, excellent meals, dive trips and other activities.
Divers that go to Barbareta are there for two main spots. The spectacular 3 miles long Barbareta Wall or Morat Wall is very popular amongst divers; often drifting from one side to the other. Pigeon Cays to the south is the second most touristic spot as the small island if pretty and an excellent location for picnics in between diving or snorkeling.
