Princess Alexandra National Park Princess Alexandra National Park, located at Grace Bay, is home to the Coral Gardens. The Coral Gardens is an area in the crystal clear blue green waters of Grace Bay. The Coral Gardens are clearly roped off.

You will have the beach to yourself. Easy to drive, or bike, to and the clear warm water is great for snorkling.

There are several points along Lower Bight Rd where you can access this beach park. We started at Smith's Reef at the far west end. There was easy, free parking (we had no problems at all on a Saturday afternoon) and the place was basically deserted. There are homes along the beach (and further down there are also hotels) but...

Tasting local fare with an alcoholic beverage listening to local music was fun, fun, fun! Begins at 5:30 p.m. every Thursday evening...recommend getting there 5:30 p.m. to get a seat!

I got the best underwater pictures of my trip here. Highly recommended. There are three points of entry. Avoid the west, because the parking lot is not safe. The other two are by lovely hotels.

The park has beautiful white (swimmable) beaches. The area was touted to have the best snorkeling on the island, but snorkeling was average, at best

So beautiful I cannot being to find the words! You are in the ocean, protected from the waves by a coral reef miles out (and you can see the waves breaking on it!), sand that is like powdered sugar and water so clear and blue. Just Go!

Snorkeling was good. Hard beach to walk on to get to the reef, but otherwise beach was empty. There was a strong wind when we went so had to contend with surf while snorkeling, but we would go back on a nicer day
