Half MNoon Bay Beach - Apple Maps

Half Moon Bay Beach is considered to be one of Antiguas showcase beaches and is an impeccable venue for sunning and swimming. Though it’s not undiscovered, it’s often very quiet. Half Moon Bay will offer you peace, quiet and solitude. Charge the camera, pack a picnic, grab a towel and some water shoes then go see the most beautiful, unspoiled, undeveloped beach imaginable. Since Half Moon Bay is a national park, you’ll find touring families, couples and singles enjoying themselves along the shoreline. Keep in mind that certain water conditions make swimming dangerous for young children and inexperienced swimmers.

Bring your own equipment to snorkel close to the beach over the coral reef. Walk out to the rocky point where youll discover aquatic life such as crabs, urchins and snails. Poke around in an old hurricane worn hotel, adventure up rocks or walk around past the private yacht club, Mill Reef.

For a taste of Italy under the Caribbean sun, set your sights on Harmony Hall Restaurant as well as The Bay Restaurant, which serves Caribbean and international cuisine.. Youll want to enjoy food and drinks during the day since Half Moon Bay sleeps with the sun, offering you evenings of quiet and relaxation.
