Dunbar Rock – 1 female spot open

Private island get-away

Where we are diving

A favorite destination of trip leader Jim Hayes, Dunbar Rock’s reef is a protected marine reserve making it an ideal spot for scuba diving. Part of a volcanic and coral mountain range called The Bonacca Ridge, Guanaja marks the beginning of the second largest barrier reef in the world – the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. You get the opportunity to dive vertical walls, lava tunnels and wrecks including the nearby Jado Trader. Jado Trader happens to be one of the most sought-after wrecks in the Caribbean! There are also more than 300 identified fish species in the Bay Island waters. Scuba divers frequently see Angelfish, Hamlets, Butterfly fish, Creole Wrasse, Grouper, Jackfish, Moray eels, Octopus, Parrotfish and Nurse sharks! The Dunbar Rock dive center is conveniently located just off the docks on the island.


Where we are staying

The Villa on Dunbar Rock is a truly unique experience. This 15,000 square foot property is perched on a cay with 360° views of Sandy Bay, Guanaja and surrounding cays, this unique resort blends beauty and serenity. The villa offers a cardio room, infinity pool, private white sand beaches, pool bar, on call masseuse, and complimentary laundry service. Anything you could possibly want or need is right there on the private island!
