Half Moon Cay was a very beautiful island. It is a private island owned by Carnival and HAL for use by there cruiseship passengers(guests). There are a few Shore Excursions to do; I saw parasailing, snorkeling, I also heard there was a nature trail walk, stringray encounter, horseback riding and a few others.
I didn't choose any shore excursion. Instead, like many others, I just had a relaxing day at the beach, as you see in the photos. The cruise ship will anchor closely off-shore and a tender boat will take you ashore. There are a few gift shops,a replica caribbean stlye church, a large buffet, and pinic pavilions on the island. I had a great time on Half Moon Cay.
By the way, they pronounce the word "Cay" like "Key". So I wonder why don't just spell it "Half Moon Key"?
