A great, easy snorkeling adventure

A bit challenging to find but a simple swim right off the beach. Two or three main areas to take advantage of. Saw some beautiful fish and even a shark!

The water in front of the Park is simply lovely. Much of the park is secluded with plenty of indigenous greenery. The water of the sea is still the true attraction here.

We went for the "Thursday Fish Fry" so didn't actually go on the beach. We walked over after sunset so couldn't really see too much but it seemed okay.

We stayed at the Sands and there is a natural preserve area between The Sands and Point Grace with signs that say "Princess Alexandra National Park". It's just really nice to see an area that fronts the ocean without buildings on it!! Butterflies, lizards, egrets & sandpipers!! On the opposite side of the Sands we saw flamingos! Just made me...

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!

Kayaking... omg it was beautiful.. As your going across the water you can actually see the different shades of blues. Looking down you can see lots of star fish.. a baby shark, and masses of other fish. I booked thru Blue, my husband did not go so I was solo. They only go by tides so they do not go... More
