Just a short visit on a self-drive tour of Antigua. We'd been advised by locals to try Half Moon Bay, and we were not disappointed. Wilder than the west coast, bigger waves, and a perfect beach. Antigua has a number of natural wonders, but this is well worth the trip.

We have visited this beach several times and it is one of our favourites on the island. There is a great bar/restaurant serving good reasonably priced food. If you go on a Sunday in high season it is very busy, mid week is best if you like piece and quiet. There is a hotel which was severely damaged during a... More

Beautiful. Great for swimming. We ate at ocean view restaurant. Our server, Peaches, was awesome. Delicious coconut shrimp and fries that we will return for. Loved this beach- our favorite.

My wife and I have been in Antigua for nearly a week and a half. We have visited several of the beaches on the island, and Half Moon Bay is our favorite. We've made two visits and hope to go back for at least one more before we head home. The beauty of this beach is beyond words. We also... More

We actually took a local bus here, it was worth it but it took forever. Beach was a bit crowded when we went, still very nice! IF its not too windy there is some pretty good snorkeling. There s a pleasant hike along the coast.

Half moon bay is quite the trip, but it is really worth it. Like all the beaches we experienced in Antigua, there are eating, drinking, and bathroom facilities available. Due to the remote location, it's not crowded at all. The water is calm, warm and clear. The beach is clean and expansive. The best part, is walking around the corner,... More

We found Half Moon Bay on a wild and windy day, with a few showers and were struck by it's beauty. The high waves crashing on the shore were dramatic, although the sight of the derelict resort, ruined by a hurricane some years ago was sad. We adjourned to the Beach Bum Bar overlooking the bay and were served by... More

I hate TK write this because now it will get more popular but there you go. On the Atlantic side of the island and featuring a horse shoe shape with ruins of a hurricane-destroyed resort on one end and gentle cliffs on the other (you can walk up these for more great views). It is more East than West facing... More

Facilities are limited .... extremely limited. But what a treat for the senses! Crashing waves, calm blue sea (to the left) to swim in. Lovely sand. An abandoned hotel (to the right). Oh, and one of the best beach cafes on the island. We are lucky enough to visit Antigua every year, and two trips out here for two or... More

Beautiful crashing waves of the Atlantic and yet protected by a natural jetty. The Beach Bum Bar serves food and good wine and drinks. I had lobster grilled. Just ok. Not great. Fish wrap was also unsatisfying in every way.
