Golf // Fore! Play!
Only minutes away, and a free shuttle ride, is one of Pete Dye’s newest golf courses.
Roatan’s only course, The Black Pearl is a jewel awaiting discovery. This 18-hole,
par-72, 7200 yard championship golf course starts at the ocean’s doorstep, rises
into the island’s rolling foothills, then takes golfers on a wild ride back to the seaside
It features one of Dye’s signature island greens, and 14 holes offer
stunning vistas of the ocean and the Meso-American Barrier Reef. The Black Pearl is
not only a haven for golfers, but for the vast wildlife on Roatan as well. With more
than 100,000 plants and trees, the golf course is one of the largest sanctuaries of
plant and animal life.
