There is public beach access at several spots along the road to Princess Alexandra. The best access's are closer to Turtle Cove at Smith's Reef and Coral Garden's. The Coral around this part is rejuvenating but still looks a little beat up. There are plenty of fish to see, turtles and Rays that will occasionally swim by too. The water... More

Lots of public access points. Many restaurants, resorts, and shops in the area. Beautiful beaches. There is a reason this is one of the top beaches in the world!

I started my beach walks from here and headed away from Beaches. It just got more beautiful the longer I walked. Less populated and very relaxed.

less than 10 yards from the beach is a snorkeling "trail" with bouys to follow around a man-made reef, making the snorkeling super easy for all levels. Eels, sea turtles, sting rays and lots of fish.

The reef is right off the beach and roped off so boaters do not come near the snorkelers. It is a large reef with lots of inhabitants. We saw trumpet fish, turtles, and stingray. Had a great time snorkeling with the family.

I love that it is protected and their care about it has been going on for years. It has had some damage from hurricanes but the beach is unmatched.

Fantastic, public beaches that are open to the public with signs for beach access although some have pretty long walks to get to, but all the beaches on TCI are wonderful

Area has plentiful reefs separated by areas of sea grass or sand. Just keep swimming parallel to shore and you will come upon another reef. Look at which way the wind is going and just float along until you're tired then you can swim to shore and walk back instead of swimming against the wind or waves. Also watch out... More

Tis is at the end of Grace Bay and a p,ace for a ice walk on the sand in the open air. Woot too many people so it is really a national park.

Let's all work together to keep the park clean, and help cultivate the native flora - support the local community's efforts to keep the park eco-friendly!
