We went to Half Moon Bay during our stay as it was recommended as the best beach on the island, to be honest we were disappointed, yes it was quiet and the beach is good but there is no facilities, one guy renting umbrellas but no beds. Didn't return to this beach preferred others

Not many visitors make it to this beach as it is away from the touristy areas. It was very quiet, only about ten people on the beach, but beautiful sandy beach and relatively protected from the winds, but not much shade from the sun. There is a small rustic but authentic beach bar selling drinks and food. We stopped for... More

My wife and I went late on in the day to the bay. The view is magnificent and although the wind was up and the waves were breaking off the sides, the beach is really pleasant. We went on either a quiet day or when it was late as there were no shops open and we were the only people... More

We drove here as a family for the swimming.We were not disappointed.It was very quiet despite the sunny day but I suppose every date is sunny here. The bathing seemed safe and the water beautiful. There are two cafes to eat at.We used the one on the beach.Staff were friendly and hard working . The food did the job nicely... More

My only regret is that we didn't have more time to spend on this beautiful beach. No chairs or umbrellas here so bring a towel. Snack shop behind the beach. Was the site of a category 5 hurricane in 1995 and wiped out some of the shore and an old, now dilapidated hotel. Don't let this stop you from visiting... More

I would agree with the accolade of being one of the best 10 beaches in the world. This is a wonderful location. I loved walking around the beach from headland to headland and then over the rocks to view the beautiful Atlantic coastline. The waters were calm and warm, although be careful as there are some undercurrents which did drag... More

Beautiful Half Moon Bay. What can you say to such a stunning place. In a bay all on its own.. take a picnic or buy a snack for the local bars there. Not much shade but just for an hour even to take photos or longer if you like to bathe in blue water. No loungers so take a towel... More

Best beach on island. About 45 minutes from dickerson bay. Great snorkeling. No chair rentals. No watersports. Small beach shack with drinks and food. Very rustic and unspoiled. If coming from cruise ship, i would rent a car and a gps as it is impossible to find with map. I probably would not recommend if only here for a few... More
