We travelled over by car from Montego Bay and really wanted a quiet beach experience away from Negril itself. As such, Half Moon Beach is ideal. Blink and you'll miss the narrow turning from the main A1 road, which takes you down a narrow track towards the beach. On arrival we were greeted warmly - "Are you coming to spend... More

Nice place to lay on the beach! Grab a drink or some great food. Jump in the sea and go for a swim. You will love it there.

This was a lovely stop on one of our tours....think is was Bob Marley and Negril tour from Riu Palace in Montego Bay. We were supposed to go have lunch at the shack on the ocean but couldn't because it was too windy. They really accommodated us and made us feel very welcome. Beach was awesome. Got most of my...

Before our trip I noticed the reviews of this location and hoped to visit Half Moon Beach. We finally made it the last day of our trip. This beach is just a little bit north of Seven Mile Beach so our taxi ride from the West End took about 20 minutes. When we got there around 9:30 it looked like... More

do not go on catamaran here. we were all bored and wanted to leave and return to our resorts with better beaches. it is almost like you are being held hostage there. they will not take you back until they decide. whether it's raining or not. you sit and wait.

So glad my daughter and I visited Half Moon Beach and their Captain Jack's Pirate Shack island! It was a great way to spend the day! Not overcrowded, secluded, all the amenities you need! The food on the island was good and the drinks were cold! The snorkeling was nice! For $10 a person ($5 for the beach and $5... More

This tiny beach is relatively far away from most everything, which is a blessing because it is quiet and unspoiled. It's picture-perfect: a small bay with a shallow sandy beach and an island in the middle. The soft sand and the long shallow stretch made it perfect for our 2-year-old daughter to splash and run and learn to swim. On... More
