Located on beautiful Shelter Island around the bay from downtown San Diego, Humphrey’s Half Moon Inn & Suites feels like a tropical getaway with a relaxed Hawaiian style and laid-back vibe.

Resort-like in ambiance, the lush property sits on its own palm-fringed private marina, with direct access to a waterfront walking and bike path that runs the length of Shelter Island. The protected bay is peaceful and calm, making it a prime spot for water sports like kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding. The resort includes a large heated pool, Jacuzzi and pool bar. 

The tropical theme flows through to guest rooms with plantation-style wood ceilings and shutters and tasteful contemporary decor. During the summer, Humphrey’s Concert by the Bay Series hosts a concert series with popular artists performing at the outdoor theatre. Humphrey’s Restaurant -- named for Humphrey Bogart -- offers waterfront dining and a Sunday Champagne brunch, and there's live music nightly at Backstage LIVE, a music and mixology venue on property.
