Half Moon Beach Club


We got married at the half moon in 2000 but havent been back to sarasota since. We hoped to go back for our 10th anniversary next sept. Ive been told that the half moon is gone. Can anyone confirm? Im gutted if this is true!

If it is, does anyone know whats now in its place? If we did go back do you think we could walk near the bit of beach where it was (and where we tied the knot)?

Thanks for your help

Unfortunately, the Half Moon was replaces by condos:

(old article):

U.S. Assets has had similar results at Orchid Beach Club, a $110 million, beachfront condo project on Lido Key.

Although construction on Orchid Beach's two 11-story towers won't be completed for months, only three of 54 units remain unsold. One penthouse recently sold for $4.9 million.

As with the rest of its portfolio, Brown believes the emphasis on amenities -- Orchid Beach will contain a private pool, fitness center, billiard room, spa, library, media room, resident bar and concierge service -- sets the project apart.

"It's the culmination of all we've done," Tallman, 49, said of the condos replacing the Half Moon Beach Club hotel, which U.S. Assets bought for $22 million.

You can still walk Lido Beach, which was renourished this year. ~SRQgirl
