We visited Half Moon Bay as part of a private tour around the island. The beach is absolutely stunning. There is nothing there so plan to bring your own chairs & food. However, if you want a private beach to yourself, it's perfect.

Heard about the bay so drove over to check it out. A outstanding beach and swimming. Beautiful sand. Very Calm waters at the far end but worth the walk down there in the luscious sand. Spent several hours here. There are 2 shack styled restaurants here but we did not try them.

This beach is absolutely beautiful, complete with a restaurant that has a wonderful vibe (I also bought some lovely earrings from a lady there). There weren't any lounges when we visited, which didn't bother us, as a towel suits us just fine. The abandoned hotel is quite a beauty to explore (destroyed by a hurricane in 1995), and from what...

Half Moon Bay is a massive beach, with waves and not-so wavey areas. The sand is white and the sea is blue and clear. the perfect beach.

We were glad to find this beach, as at the time we had it to ourselves. Plus this is an interesting beach, with nice pebbles, etc, to look at, Swimming, to the Left, of the bay, there were less waves, and very nice for swimming. Plus further around the bay, For Photos, there are brilliant crashing waves, against the rocks,... More

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
