Half Moon, Jamaica is a tropical destination, and May is typically a warm, humid month with temperatures ranging from 75°F (24°C) to 88°F (31°C). Therefore, it is recommended that you pack light and breathable clothing that will keep you comfortable in the heat. Here are some suggestions for what to wear:

  • Resort casual attire recommended for all meetings, including lightweight and loose-fitting clothing such as cotton or linen shirts, shorts, and dresses will keep you cool and comfortable.
  • Thursday activity attire based upon your personal selection, including golf, horseback riding, beach, spa, pickleball, tennis, or water activities.
  • Comfortable walking shoes, sandals, or flip flops are recommended. High heels are not recommended as many events will take place on grass.

  • Thursday night’s Award of Excellence will be a “White Night” gala held outdoors on the grass. White or light resort attire recommended. No tuxedos, ties or jackets required.
