Half Moon Bay, which is about a 5 minute drive from Freetown, was rated as one of the best beaches in the world. Waters are clear...hardly crowded...good snorkeling...and a beautiful sight to photograph.
During my stay in Antigua, we visited this crescent shaped beach almost everyday. The center of the crescent is most active—people body surf here. The northern end is the calmest point, where people just sit back and relax. Reef is just a few feet away from the shore. Expect to see babies swimming around, tangs, and flounder. I saw a barracuda and quickly swam back to the shore.
By the abandoned hotels is a trail. Didn't get a chance to hike it, maybe next time.
