Have stayed here in a cabin and dined here a number of times. A great place to spend a day or a week. Not luxurious accomodations by any stretch, but charming and rustic, which is how I prefer it. Comfortable cottages with HOT SHOWERS set in what has to be one of the lovliest places on earth. Swim, snorkel, relax...it's... More

We arrived at Half Moon Beach by catamaran and although we did a bit of snorkelling on the way, the rum was already beginning to take a grip! The lobster and jerk-chicken BBQ we had on the beach was first-class and then sadly the heaven's opened. What a shame we had to sit in the bar listening to a superb... More

My boyfriend and I just took a cab there and stayed for the day. We didn't want to go there on a tour and only get an hour there and we are glad we did it that way. It cost $5 for access to the beach and $5 for the boat ride to the private island restaurant Pirates Cove. We... More

Gorgeous beach with coral reef and pirates bar island right in front! Simple but very atmospheric cabins/bungalows located on the rocks right at the ocean!!! And very cheap as well. Chill out. Disconnect. There is no wifi.

We have stopped here a couple of times on our way to Negril now, because it's so worth it. A great place to sit back and have an ice cold Red Stripe, and just relax by the water. The owners are so friendly, we wanted to stay longer but the beach was calling. Thanks to Norris at Real Jamaican Tours... More
