Serene, beautiful beach below an Antiguan National Park. Avery's Beach Bums cafe is a go to local lunch or sunset dinner. Bring hiking shoes and follow the right ridge (as you look out) to a giant hole in the ridge for a great view.

We visited this beach in early March - beautiful turquoise sea, white sand and a half moon shape (hence the name). Peaceful location, with a beach bar serving a selection of drinks and snack nearby. No shade or beach chairs, but that's a refreshing change...More

Beautiful beach, well protected for the kids. No chairs or service on beach so bring your towels etc. The Beach Bum Cafe was nice, was quaint and food was tasty.

This is a nice enough bay, not as nice as Pigeon Point Beach. The cafe / Restaurant at Half Moon Bay is expensive. The bay had a lot of seaweed when we visited.

There is Smiling Harrys along the road, but we went to the Beach Bum Shack overlooking the bay a couple of weeks ago. Absolutely excellent. Can recommend the grilled chicken strips.
