Not what I expected at all...

Beautiful and secluded, Not far from Negril, but you feel like your worlds away. A little bit of beach, a little restaurant, and a lot of quiet, I loved this spot!

Lovely and tranquil beach where you can chill out on the golden sand. Swimming in the sea is great too.

This was me and my wife's favorite thing we did while in the Negril area. It's a private beach/bay run by Andrew and Tanya, two of the friendliest, most genuine folks you'll ever meet. You can get there from Negril in 15-20 mins. What a lovely respite from 7 Mile Beach! No peddlers - just a private beach with a... More

Sorry, for the cheap shot but that about sums up this place. I came expecting from the brochure to find an eco-sanctuary. Or at least a Bue and Red Macaw. Instead, the only bird we saw was a caged Parakeet. Flouted as 'THE REAL JAMAICA" without those annoying beach vendors, this place was anything but. As for those "beach vendors,"... More

Comes with lunch your standard chicken rice and salad or lobster more than enough,taken on a walk around the small island if you wanted to , more than enough rum to drink if that's what you wanted ,also soft drinks . Value for Monet as it didn't cost a lot .

"Paradise Found!!!" is the message of the colorful flyer for Half Moon Beach: "Sun, Fun & Great Food." Etc. The "short 10-min drive from Negril" is actually a longish, expensive drive, about 30 minutes, from Negil's west end. The beach is isolated, as promised; there are no vendors, except for the in-your-face proprietor of the gift shop, open for business... More

You have a superb trip out on a catamaran to go here, we didn't see any dolphins but we had flying fish for most of the journey. when on the beach and having a few drinks the BBQ was fired up and we had fresh lobster. mmmm mmmm. Drinks again on the boat for journey back, excellent trip. highly recommended.

My husband and I went the other day with our new friends. The four of us didn't really know what to expect and it turned out to be an awesome time!! The owners Andrew and Tania are wonderful people. Very friendly and a pleasure to talk to. Andrew took us over to their new Island Bar by boat where we... More

Tried a new excursion this year at the Sunset at the Palms Negril. Beautiful 6 hour day trip with snorkeling and a lobster grill for lunch. The trip was organized by ScubaCaribe and our captain was Gauntlet Forrester and the lifeguard/snorkel guide/bartender was Jahnaine Jackson. I've been no more snorkel cruises than I can remember but this was so cool... More
