Imagine sand so soft that it feels like your stepping on warm butter. And water so crystal clear you can see every tiny fish that swims by. When the sun hits the ocean it's hard to determine where the water ends and the sky begins. Yup, that's Half Moon Cay.
We wanted to take advantage of this island and opted to get off on a tender boat before the line got too long. This place is worth waking up early for.
Once our feet hit the land we took the quick stroll to the beach, found some lounge chairs and just soaked in the sunny goodness we had been craving.
After some floating in the ocean it was time for lunch. One of the positives of visiting a private cruise island like this is that you can enjoy a fabulous day for FREE! Lunch was buffet style and similar to the ships food.
We then strolled around the island to explore and realized it was quite large and saw everything from beach contests to a volleyball game. Everyone was enjoying this paradise so much that they wanted to soak up every last minute. And that is what they did. Which led to ridiculously long, hot, sweaty line to get back on a tender to the ship.
So is this island worth it? Absolutely. But if lines aren't your thing plan to get off the ship early and head back at least an hour before last call. And of course, enjoy the slice of heaven that is Half Moon Cay, Bahamas.
