Whenever we visit Antigua we drop into Smilin' Harry's, the bar/restaurant on Half Moon Bay. Harry and his brother are excellent hosts, the bar a great location and the prices are good.

Half Moon Bay has no facilities, the hotel having been in a state of disrepair for some time. If it wasn't for Smilin' Harry's it just wouldn't be possible for us to linger as long at our favourite beach in Antigua. The bar's restrooms are very clean and close by.

Harry also had a small satellite bar next to the car park by the beach so there isn't far to stroll for a cold beer.

Just back from Antigua and visited Harry's three times taking US and Canadian friends from the resort, couldn't have been made more welcome! Great place to eat, just ask what he's got in and enjoy, two fresh fish and four ice cold beers for $20 can't be beaten. Don't tell anyone else but Halfmoon beach is our favourite on the island.

Harry and his bother are very nice host! Their sister is the cooker. This is perfect to hang around the island and find a quite place far away from tha crazy party bars. Smiling Harry's is a family snack bar and you can't pass this place without atlist smile. They have thousand of stories to share and you really feel like at home. We are travelers and make the turn of the island by walking, using hamacs and when they learn it, they install long char for us to spend a good night. The day after, we go again on the road with one of their bottle of famous rhum punch. It's a place that you shoudn't miss if you want contact with local people!

This is one of the best atmosphere you can find just on the best beach of Antigua Island.
Harry is a kind, polite and has a big hearth. Just go there, take your drink, try local food and chat with Harry.
Around is quite and the beach is amazing.

Forget the rip off tourist bars on beaches - hire a car and explore the island and go for a swim in half moon bay.
Stop off at Smiling Harry's for an experience that you won't forget.
Harry knows everyone and everything about this beautiful island. The last time we went we spent a few hours there drinking ice cold beers and eating his delicious and fresh hot buttered pop corn.
We met a lovely Swedish family who have a house nearby and the only thing that made us leave was that it was getting dark and we needed to drive back.
Take the time to stop and drink with Harry, take him a flag or a bottle of your local beer and enjoy the company of one of life's gems.
See you soon Harry!
