Such a lovely place! The bay is so beautiful and calming compared to the 7 mile beach. However, there are ugly rabid looking dogs running around, lots of little bugs and crap in the non powdery sand. Still worth it.

This place gets better every time I go, now it has the coolest bar on an island off the island. Good snorkelling. Eco friendly and really yummy food! Spend 4-6 hours there or book a place overnight...I will next time! T

Half Moon beach is idillic, crystal clear waters, white sand and a bar and food shack. It's heaven particularly if you get there under your own steam and avoid the tourist excursions which arrive just before lunch. It's like starring in your own James Bond movie, providing you don't catch sight of relality in a mirror! Can't recommend strongly enough.... More

Booked a bamboo raft tour, was awesome. $50 for 5 hours for 2 people. Jungle was our guide, I cannot say enough great things about him. Was great to talk to and knew a lot about the ocean and the area. Great sense of humour and super relaxed, top bloke! We rafted out to a small reef and went snorkelling... More

easy to get to especially if you're on the lunch cruise. Stop for snorkelling, then to the beach for awesome buffet and frolicking!

We love this little gem. $5 to get in and you are on a small private beach. No music or higglers. Very good food at the restaurant. There is a bar sitting out in the water they will take u by boat but water was too rough the day we were there. About a 15 min car ride from Negril

Went to this beach for the day to get away from the 7 mile beach. It was a friendly welcome. No seats so we had a shade then we found some seats. Early afternoon. There was a old man and a young woman sitting naked, which I found offensive. It was a rocky start to going into the water and... More
