In November, a new water park was added to the main beach, near the tender pier. Called Half Moon Lagoon, there are three water slides on the beach geared to young children (with three more for teens to be added in spring of 2005). Just off shore in the shallow, brilliant teal waters, float a family of giant plastic animals -- including a crocodile, shark and octopus -- which are tethered to the seafloor and perfect for little kids as well as adults to climb on. Not only is the water shallow and calm, the drop-off is gradual and the seafloor ultra soft and virtually shell-free -- inviting to delicate little feet. My boys loved playing here and since Holland America doesn't attract hordes of kids, we had the area virtually to ourselves. Currently, there is no charge to use the water park

Equipment: Half Moon Cay is situated in a protective bay making conditions ideal for swimming in the calm waters. Holland America has one of the most comprehensive water sports programs of the private islands. You can rent a Hobie Catamaran, Sunfish Sailboat, View Boards, Windsurfer Sailboards, kayaks, aqua cycles and float mats. There is even a separate area designated for these activities. There are volleyball and basketball courts, horseshoes and shuffleboard, a fitness trail with exercise stations and nature trails for hiking. On Half Moon Cay you can snorkel, SCUBA dive, jet-ski or even do some bone fishing. Of course, you can always just kick back and relax or have a beachside massage
