Considered by a lot of divers as the best dive on the island, Mary’s Place is a series of deep coral canyons, sheer cliffs, absolutely full of marine life. Unfortunately, seeing as its reputation is that it’s the best of the best, there are a lot of divers waiting to splash their way in, but once you get into the maze it’s well worth the wait. Just think of the soft coral, huge blue fans, green and fold sea rods, feathery looking sea plumes.
Considering how busy West End is, it’s no wonder Half Moon Bay is an absolute hub of activity, considering its located right in the middle. And we’re not underestimating, either. From the scuba diving boats that come in and out of the docks all day, fishing charter and private charters leaving every few minutes, people splashing about in the sea, and a multitude of paddleboarders, snorkelers and divers sharing the ocean, there is literally always something going on.
Sure, it’s not a private beach escape, but not every beach needs to be uber private and quiet. Sometimes it’s good to enjoy in the company of other people, in a fun and vibing atmosphere. Plus, there are tonnes of bar and restaurants to keep you entertained if the beach is a little too hectic.
