Guanaja offers white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, lush hillsides and waterfalls, and spectacular coral reef. Guanaja has its own fresh water source from the mountain streams and has no roads for cars.
The only city that Guanaja has is Bonacca which is located about half a mile on a small cay.
