Shallow you can see lots of fish on a sandy bottom large coral hands but even more fun are the properties you can see when looking at the Shoreline that you don't even know are there from the landside. The reef is maybe 1 k off shore and I suggest getting close to it it and feeling the waves break... More

No parachutes, no jet skis, just the roll of the waves, the occasional pelican and the beauty Mother Nature has provided.

A good spot for island snorkeling and viewing local aquatic life. Unless you're staying at one of the luxury homes on the beach, you'll need to approach the reef's point from one of two beach accesses...one near the Turtle Cove marina entrance (west side of the point), down Coconut Road) or the second on the east side of the point...

13 miles of heaven :) The colour of the waters here is just as the pictures depict it. I hope the park keeps protecting such a priceless treasure.

If you enjoy coral and wish to go snorkeling directly from the beach, Smith's Reef is your best pick! Use preferably the West access (at the tip of Turtle Cove) and walks 300 meters (300 large steps) towards the East. This is the best place to enter the water. Look around, since this part of Smith's Reef is indeed a... More

The all inclusive hotels have their own chairs on their beaches but the Princess Alexandra National Park trails and beaches are open to the public. We were there in "high season" and we never encountered large crowds of people.
