So much natural wildlife! It's amazing to see what marine life can sustain in the protected area, versusthe unprotected area surrounding it- what a footprint us humans can leave! Make sure to bring your own snorkel, goggles, and fins if you can as there isn't anywhere around to rent.

Beautiful as can be - too bad the rest of the island does not share the same natural beauty as the beaches.

We visited Smith's Reef, part of the National Park, because I had read great snorkeling reviews. We actually took directions right off of several other posts here on Tripadvisor to get to the right spots for snorkeling. It did not disappoint and we liked this area better than Bight Reef because there are not many people around and you see... More

Princess Alexandra National Park, from my understanding, is all of the 'public' parks, at least all of them along Grace Bay. So it isn't just one specific place. All of the designated park areas we visited were very clean, had plenty of parking, i.e. they made it very easy to enjoy the beautiful beaches!

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 aren't allowed to snorkel in the enclosed roped area, only the outer edges. This was initially disappointing to... More

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...

We dove for conch here in the shallow extremely clear water. It was unbelievable! Our guide made us conch salad which was fresh and delicious!

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!
