With its calm waters and incredible sandy beaches, WEST END, 14km from Coxen Hole, makes the most of its ideal setting at the southwest corner of the island. From the beautifully sheltered Half Moon Bay at the northern end of town, a sandy track runs 1km or so along the water’s edge, past guesthouses, bars and restaurants geared towards independent travellers of all budgets. The year-round community of sun-worshippers and dive shops gives the village a laidback charm during the day and a vibrant, party feel after dark.
