This is a private beach, where you can stay the entire day with a complimentary boat tour to another small island for only 5$. The owners are really nice, and it is way more quite than the 7 mile long beach. There are 5 guard dogs that are really friendly and come to you if you want to play, they... More

Wonderful, quiet day at a private beach. Or bring all your friends and have a private beach party! The food is great and proprietors, Andrew & Tania are lovely. Always a good time.

Took a taxi here for a day. The beach is beautiful. We paid $5 for the boat trip across to the island and had a couple of drinks there, then came back to eat. We had an amazing lobster meal, the best meal of our stay. The bar was great fun too. Lots of tourists visit this beach, but there... More

Our second visit after spending the day there last last August as well. $5 entrance per person and another $5 for the round trip boat ride to Calico Jack bar. Beach offers quiet seclusion and beautiful swimming - the end of the Rhode reef is to the left and can be swum to easily. Even saw lion fish! Water is... More

Picked up from our beach near out hotell, Riu Palce Tropical Bay. Great crew on catamaran. We were able to snorkel off the catamaran. Half Moon Bay was very nice and the lunch provided was delicious, the lobster was lovely.

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
