Half moon beach is a lovely idyllic private beach, it's only small but when we went there were very few other people there and it felt like our own bit of luxury! It looks like some of the tour operators go there on day trips so it could be a bit of a lottery if any of them turn up... More

Half Moon Bay is a relaxing half day trip on a catamaran with alcohol, snorkeling, and lobster lunch. It was nice to get off the resort, but still have a beach and ocean day.

We went by boat to Half Moon and had a great day. Lobster cooking on the beach, rum, red stripe, the sun, the beautiful water made for one IRIE day. Perfect place to get away from all the busy of 7 mile.

This is a very tranquil location with great hosts. They have several inexpensive simple cabins that are very private and pretty sweet. Their restaurant/bar is quite nice and their beach is hands down awesome.

I took a route taxi out to Half Moon Beach. I had read about it here on TA so I wanted to check it out. What an amazing opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of the long beach. It was a $5 entry fee, but one I would gladly pay over and over. There were hammocks and... More

I liked that it was off the beaten path. There is several things to do there. Swim,snorkel, boat ride, and a little bar on a little island that you take a boat to get to.

Cutest little bar ever, friendly staff. We just stopped in (our taxi driver was taking us on an "old road" tour).

Spent an afternoon to relax and get away from the vendors at Seven Mile Beach. Was a quiet somewhat cloudy day but perfect for reading a book and taking a nap on the beach. The dogs were friendly and if someone didn't want to be bothered by them the owner scolded them and they left them alone. Really enjoyed playing... More
