On a recommendation of a neighbor at our villa at Palmetto Bay, we booked a full day trip to the east end of the island, a location many tourist fail to visit. Big mistake. With its deserted beaches and untouched reef, it is heaven. SunSplash tours picked a group of six of us up at Palmetto Bay and took us on a half hour ride to Oak Ridge where we would meet the boat. Along the way, the guide pointed out many sights and gave us the history of this end of the island. Once at the dock in Oak Ridge, we met with James, one of the owners of SunSplash, and the boat's captain. Once we and the coolers of food and drink were loaded on, we were off. James, a native of Roatan gave us the history of Oak Ridge, the Venice of Honduras, as we cruised the beautiful aquamarine waters all the way to Port Royal.
