Fodor's Expert Review Half Moon Bay
This natural ribbon of sand linking two uninhabited cays is only inches above the sparkling turquoise waters. Only minutes from Provo's eastern tip, Half Moon Bay is one of the most gorgeous beaches in the country. There are small limestone cliffs to explore on either end where rock iguanas sun themselves, as well as small, sandy coves. Most of the island's tour companies run excursions here or simply offer a beach drop-off. As an alternative, rent a kayak from Big Blue Unlimited and venture over independently. Amenities: none. Best for: solitude; swimming; walking.
