Half Moon Beach

Great beach the only problem is the locals try to sell you stuff, I like it better at night just walking along the beach, very safe

This little patch of beach land is a great experience from my time in Negril. If you want off the path, seclusion, good snorkeling (for reef not as much fishes) and just a break from the busy 7 Mile beach of Negril. We took a scooter here but get a cab. The ride itself was ok. Had a good time... More

My husband and I finally made it to Half Moon Beach in July. We have travelled to Jamaica since 1992 and learned about Half Moon over the last several years, but just didn't get there. We left the Seven Mile Beach which is a beautiful beach but bustling with people and vendors. At Half Moon Beach it tucked away from... More

Andrew and his family and colleagues helped provide a great day snorkeling for us. Great drinks and food, clean beach, lots of fish in the water, and friendly people here. It's kind of hidden and a little outside of Negril, but worth looking for. If you get a chance, take a boat across to the Pirate Island too.

My husband and I tried a Couple different spots on the island to snorkel and this was the best. The water is calm because it is in a bay. There are lots and lots of fish because it is a no fishing zone . The staff was great . I preferred the frozen rum drink to the regular rum punch.... More

Took family and friends here as part of our wedding weekend. They absolutely loved their grilled lobster and the chicken in the half pineapple shell. Loved the privacy and the ambience! We go every year and will go again in 2016.

Having stayed on Negril's 7 mile beach close to thirty times, it is nice to get away from the riff raff and enjoy a peaceful day nearby. Jamaica's tourism board should have reserved their "once you go, you know" slogan for this private little hideaway. I have spent a day at the beach here, as well as stopped in for... More
