The Basics

Oak Ridge is sometimes called “The Venice of Roatan” for the canals that double as its streets. While there’s not a lot to do in the town itself, it does serve as a jumping off point for adventures on the east end of the island and its isolated beaches and mangrove forests—an area known for its top notch fishing, scuba diving, and birdwatching. Guided tours of the Oak Ridge area often include a stop at the single bar and restaurant for a drink and time to soak up the relaxed atmosphere.
