Half Moon Bay The Hidden Gem of the Turks and Caicos
Half Moon Bay is a pristine, crescent-shaped sandbar that is only one mile from Providenciales. It can be accessed by boat or by other water craft. Along with the signature sparkling turquoise waters and white sandy beaches, Half Moon also offers craggy rocks, limestone cliffs, light vegetation and Casuarina trees for extra beauty. Most
visitors enjoy the seclusion and the abundance of nature found all over the island. Beach walks, picnics, boat excursions, kayaking and stand-up paddle-boarding are all common activities on or around this serene and uninhabited island.
While the beach area, to the north, is lush and beautiful, the south side and interior of the island yields a different kind of landscape. These areas are marshy with sheltered shallow lagoons, low plants and bushes. Indeed, if you get your hiking boots on, you can enjoy the sights of herons, pelicans and iguanas.
Should you wish to spend the majority of your day in the crystal clear, sparkling water, along with swimming you can try snorkeling or diving with the many reputable companies in the Turks. However you wish to spend your day, Half Moon Bay is a special experience and it is not to be missed.
Notes: Half Moon Bay is accessible by boat, kayak or paddle boarding. Please note that should you paddle board over, the return trip may be more difficult due to stronger southeast winds.
