Beach Options on Half Moon Cay


Island Adventures Await

Half Moon Cay invites cruisers to enjoy balmy tropical weather, relaxation and recreation on a Bahamian oasis with something for everyone.  Be sure and bring your beach towel from your stateroom with you as they are not available on the island.  After tendering to Half Moon Cay you can use your Sail & Sign for most retail transactions on the island.  There is one main beach on Half Moon Cay but there are also some other beach options around the island that are just more difficult to get to.  The beach area closest to the ship is more crowded than the area past the cabanas where the beach areas offer more peace, quiet and seclusion.  Wherever you go, don't forget the sunscreen!!

Lifeguards are on duty along the beach to keep everyone safe in the swimming area. They are available to provide guidance, assist with safety concerns and help out when needed.




At about $319 per day for up to 4 people the cabanas get you out of the sun, if you want a break from it, they include an air conditioned cabana with table and chairs, lounge chairs, snacks and drinks, refrigerator, ceiling fan, misting fan, snorkel equipment, floating mats and your own personal outdoor shower.  Enjoy your own personal space and area to relax in comfort.  You can even opt for an optional butler service for those that want complete relaxation and pampering. Cabana locations along the beach are shown on our At The Port page.
