Wahoo Bay Beach Hotel is the perfect choice for a fun and relaxing getaway.
Wahoo Bay Beach is a favorite beach resort among locals and tourists alike because of two things: its authenticity and its vibrance. Located an hour outside of Port-au-Prince, Wahoo Bay shares the area of Carriès with other beach resorts, but attracts visitors with a charm all its own. With a combination of exotic dining options, an impeccable location, and a lively staff, this resort is sure to have you feel like you could live the island life year round.
Spanning 28 rooms, Wahoo errs on the smaller side and that’s exactly why it feels like a second home to most. Whether this is your last night on the island or you just want a place to spend a peaceful weekend before you head back to the city, Wahoo’s rooms are all equipped with A/C, Wi-Fi, and one of the most beautiful views of the ocean.
For those of you planning a girls’ trip or any group travels, Wahoo Bay also has an apartment with a patio and a half kitchen!
What's for breakfast?
A complimentary breakfast is available when you stay for the night, but if your plan is to arrive early, Wahoo’s restaurant has more than enough options, all of which are under $15. Breakfast options include traditional fares such as eggs, pancakes, french toast, or even crepes.
How about lunch and dinner?
If Wahoo is known for its amazing Sunday fundays in the summer, it’s equally important to acknowledge that no other place does seafood like Wahoo does. Special meals feature their “catch of the day”, meaning that your food is as fresh as it can be. The creole conch is one to try at least once, but if you’re looking for something more familiar they also serve a variety of other plates including pasta (the Haitian spaghetti is unlike any other!) so rest assured, you will find something to eat. With less than $25 you can offer yourself any dish and can even go for a dessert. We highly recommend trying the Pain Patate (sweet potato pie, Haitian style) or Blanc Manger (coconut pudding) which are both traditional haitian delicacies.
Is there a bar?
Spend your afternoon or late night by the beach enjoying a cocktail to complement the creole plate you ordered, or offer yourself a glass of wine from Wahoo’s bar. Whatever it is you might be craving, Wahoo Bay’s got it. With a selection of rum, beer, tequila, and even whiskey, there is something for everyone, including a good time at the bar.
Activities and amenities
The beach is not the only attraction at Wahoo (although the ocean water trampoline is a fan-favorite). The resort offers all sorts of activities such as diving and snorkeling, fishing expeditions, kayaking, beach volleyball, and a cohort of other activities meant to enhance your stay. During the summer, Wahoo hosts Summer Sundayz with a live DJ; it’s when there’s more of a crowd but it’s also when you are more likely to have a taste of real Haitian fun. Lastly, Wahoo Bay also offers different massage packages at its spa for when you come back from that hike or simply for a relaxing evening.
Within a short walk you can find...
An hour-long drive north of the resort, is where you will find Anse-a-Pirogue, one of Haiti’s most beautiful coastal towns. Make sure you take some time to visit this vibrant and colorful city, and most importantly, spend some time in or by the clear blue waters, with some friends and a few Prestige beers.
Need to know (before you go)
Although the resort offers free breakfast to its guests, the options for lunch and diner are only available a-la-carte and not included in the reservation fee. Unfortunately, Wahoo Bay Beach Hotel does not provide transportation from and to the city or the airport.
