Half Moon Cay is a tiny Bahamas island located about 100 miles south of Nassau. It’s a private island and Originally it was called Little San Salvador Island, the name was changed in 1997 when Holland America bought it. This means that it can only be reached by cruise.
Fondest memory: Half Moon Cay is truly beautiful… the closest I’ve been to Paradise, in terms of pristine beaches (a crescent-shaped in this case) and turquoise waters. It is only nine miles long and just a small portion of it has been developed – which means a handful of stalls selling pretty ugly t-shorts, a bar, and a food pavilion where you eat surrounded by friendly chickens.
Lay in the SUN all day Long!!
Fondest memory: The beach is long and there are a lot of chairs on the beach. Finding one is not a problem. They have about a dozen covered areas that cover two lounge chairs on the beach. Pam and I snagged one because Pam is so fair skinned. There are a few umbrellas and some shade from trees in the morning, but during the afternoon there is little to no shade.
The MUSIC Entertainment was fantastic!!
