Pigeon Cay, a tiny patch of land, sits on the reef that nearly encircles Roatan and Isla Barbareta, and is found less than 2 nautical miles off the southeastern shore of Barbareta. Despite the fact that the name contains a specific bird family, the White-crowned Pigeon is likely to be found on nearby and larger Barbareta and its national park.
The cay, which is barely 150 meters long and less than 50 meters wide, has a pristine white sand beach on its western side, while the eastern side has more shrubs and a handful of palm trees. The waters around Pigeon Cay are a snorkeler’s paradise. The barrel sponges, colorful gorgonians, and brain coral formations, as well as the different reef fishes and a 30m visibility should guarantee an enjoyable underwater experience. The shallow water next to the cay and the areas where slopes go down into deeper waters show a stunning assortment of blue hues.
