So much more natural and less commercial than seven mile beach. We loved this spot the BEST! We came on a Sunday when they had live music, soaked in the sun and swam in the ocean... read more

Not many people here made a peaceful afternoon go by soaking up the sun. We took a short boat ride out to the island and had a few drinks with a bbq lunch. I spent an hour snorkeling around the island. Half Moon beach wasn't fancy, but it was very relaxing.

The swim area is very small, and when the boats bring people to Half Moon Bay, the area gets even smaller. Only 4 beach chairs. The place is VERY primitive. The bar/restaurant is more than disappointing. It’s expensive, and they are out of half of what they offer, plus I am not convinced that they even cook the food there...I... More

So much more natural and less commercial than seven mile beach. We loved this spot the BEST! We came on a Sunday when they had live music, soaked in the sun and swam in the ocean all day - without ever being approached by a solicitor. Took the boat ride out to Calico Jack's before sunset and watched the sun... More

Our driver, Ashton Pitt, brought four of us here for an afternoon. The beach is cute but we took the boat over to the island bar, Calico Jacks. We did this instead of the two hour drive to the Pelican Bar. We enjoyed the bar. We were there too early for sunset and we were the only guests. The PA... More

This is a small beach about 30 min. outside of Negril. It's worth the trip for an afternoon. They have the best jerk chicken I've had in Jamaica. Served of course with rice and peas. Not much else on the menu though. Drinks are reasonable and the snorkeling is great. The beach area is not cleaned like the 7 mile... More

reef is very close to the beach making it easy for non-swimmers to take a look at the coral and marine life.

My family decided to go to this beach since it was private in December 2014. We definitely made the right decision. We hung out at the beach, ate at the outdoor, restaurant, snorkeled with a local guide and then went to their private island Calico Jack which can be seen from shore. We were prepared dinner and watched the sunset.... More

A wonderful place to relax and get away from it all. Located just miles outside of Negril Jamaica, Half Moon Beach is a small resort that has seven cottages built on scenic plots of land located on on side of the property, secluded from the beach and bar areas. All cottages have a wonderful view, natural wind (no AC), decks... More

This was a nice quiet beach, no vendors here which was a treat and very quiet! We went about noon for the boat ride to the island bar for lunch! Our pontoon driver was kind of rude but we had a good time once we got to the island! As is common in Jamaica they weren't really ready to feed... More

Great location way from the noise of Negril, super beach. A great spot to do dive trips from as the reef nearby is really good. However you need to arrange that on your own as they don't offer that. Basic facilities, but a great spot for an afternoon.
