Halfmoon Bay is a curving 200 m wide southwest-facing rock-bound bay, located immediately north of British Admiral Beach. The bay sides and mouth are sheltered by rocks and reefs, with only low waves reaching the bayshore where they maintain a 300 m long curving reflective beach (KI 57). The beach is backed by 20 m high scarped Pleistocene dunes, capped with vegetated Holocene dunes. The Netherby Road runs along the crest of the backing dunes.
