One of the many things you can do is horseback riding; there are trained horses that take you along an equestrian-only trail up to the island's highest points, where you will be treated to some of the best views imaginable, before descending again and trotting through the shallow depths of the sea along the shoreline.
For those who like to be outside and active, the island also has a biking tour. Simply sign up and you'll soon be pedalling your way through an island that can only be compared justly to Paradise itself. With Half Moon Cay providing some of the most stunning scenery to be found anywhere in the world, discovering it by bike may perhaps be the single best way to do so.
