Our second visit after spending the day there last last August as well. $5 entrance per person and another $5 for the round trip boat ride to Calico Jack bar. Beach offers quiet seclusion and beautiful swimming - the end of the Rhode reef is to the left and can be swum to easily. Even saw lion fish! Water is... More

Picked up from our beach near out hotell, Riu Palce Tropical Bay. Great crew on catamaran. We were able to snorkel off the catamaran. Half Moon Bay was very nice and the lunch provided was delicious, the lobster was lovely.

This beach is small but awesome, calming, great for a morning walk. Wake up with the sunrise and stroll.

Have stayed here in a cabin and dined here a number of times. A great place to spend a day or a week. Not luxurious accomodations by any stretch, but charming and rustic, which is how I prefer it. Comfortable cottages with HOT SHOWERS set in what has to be one of the lovliest places on earth. Swim, snorkel, relax...it's... More

We arrived at Half Moon Beach by catamaran and although we did a bit of snorkelling on the way, the rum was already beginning to take a grip! The lobster and jerk-chicken BBQ we had on the beach was first-class and then sadly the heaven's opened. What a shame we had to sit in the bar listening to a superb... More

My boyfriend and I just took a cab there and stayed for the day. We didn't want to go there on a tour and only get an hour there and we are glad we did it that way. It cost $5 for access to the beach and $5 for the boat ride to the private island restaurant Pirates Cove. We... More
