This was the best from shore snorkeling we found on the island. There are a number of reefs in the shallow areas and out deeper. You need to go far enough down the beach to get to the reefs . We park at the end of Coconut road and walk about 1500 feet to the right just past the bend.... More

Just keep swimming, just keep swimming!! In this national park on grace bay you will see many sea animals! Turtles, lobster, color fish with bright colors, squid and even the little mermaid if you are lucky! Go in the morning when less people are around scaring the sea animals with their screams of excitement!

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.

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
