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.

We visited this truly magnificent stretch of sandy beach and turquoise waters in Feb 2017. In one word.... 'Paradise' !!!

We visited Half Moon Bay while touring Antigua. The resort that used to be there is now out of business. This has left this huge beautiful beach virtually empty. Half Moon Bay regulatory is listed in the top beaches of Antigua. A don't miss sight.

A really wonderful beach, totally unspoilt and only a few people there. Good waves but also calm parts. Also really good for a walk .

The water was rough the day we visited. Lots of fun jumping in the waves. There is a calm water area also off to the left side of the beach if you are not interested in being tossed around in the waves. Hike up on the left to enjoy the view.
