Very beautiful beach. Relaxing atmosphere and they have a decent lunch place there at the beach. This is a beach worth visiting.

It is a beautiful beach with very few people around . The waves are strong so need to be careful with children. We have a lovely time there with friends and family.

Half Moon Bay offers a gorgeous stretch of sand and water that is absolutely delightful! Don't expect chairs to rent or anything fancy. Don't expect a perfectly groomed beach with no seaweed. There is some, but not much. It's called nature. However, do expect to see spectacular sights, especially from the rocks on the north end of the beach as... More

We have been to this beach three times over the years and always go back. Don't expect any 'attractions', the beach is all you need. It's a stunning unspoiled view, very quiet and you can get a bit of shade under the trees. Swimming is beautiful, usually surf, more so when the trade winds are blowing, but be careful of... More

Half Moon Bay Beach is one of many beautiful beaches on Antigua. A bit of a drive to get to, but well worth the trip. While we visited Half Moon Bay twice on our 9 day visit, it was never crowded. There is one small outdoor restaurant at the beach. There is a reef off the beach for some snorkeling,... More

Breathtaking view on Half-moon bay beach when you get downhill, after a good hour driving on Antigua bumpy roads, but that's worth the trip. Facing the Atlantic, feeling the gentle breeze of a February day, what an amazing beach ! On part of the beach you can swim among silver fish and island trevally fish / island jacks which literally... More

Catching a glimpse of the bay from the drive down is amazing. Bit of a drive, ( it took us nearly an hour from Jolly Harbour), but worth it. We went on a Sunday, so it was quite popular with families and groups, but not over busy. Two cafes. Parking. Limited shade in bushes. Lovely sand. Shallow entry to sea,... More

A lovely horseshoe shaped bay with beach around. Lovely fine sand. Some trees offering some shelter. Could imagine it gets busy when the weather is ideal at weekends. Toilet key at beach cafe bar. Parking with friendly vendor felt safe. Snorkelling revealed some partly transparent fish!
