The area is roped off so you can't get real close to everything. This is great so people won't destroy it. There are definite fish and coral to see, but if it is windy and wavy at all the water gets a bit cloudy. If it's your first time it will be awesome, especially if you see a turtle. If... More

Glad there was good parking but the bathroom facilities were locked. It is very worn down and even though we were in the high season there was no access to available facilities.

Not only The Bight reef (also called White House reef and Coral Gardens reef) is interesting, especially for its regular fauna (turtles, barracuda, lion fish, spiny lobsters, angel fishes, box fish) all within easy reach, but The Bight beach is a favorite on the island.

This is a quick walk down the beach from the Alexandra resort (not far past the Beeches). It's very convient to just walk from the beach out into the water and start snorkeling. Very nice!

My family and I were recently in Turks and Caicos and wanted to try snorkeling while we were there. Bights reef was okay but not as nice a Smith's Reef which was much larger, less crowded and had a lot more to see with no restictions on where you snorkeled. We saw a lot more animal life at Smith's Reef.... More

A lot of people everywhere. We didn't think the snorkeling was great, but ok. Would definitely recommend to timid snorkelers, but only for an hour or two... not the whole day.

Once your mid-circle swim straight out, that's where all the goods coral/sea life is. If you just swim around the circle there's not much to see.

Want a chance to see a 6' barracuda? This is the spot. Amazing sea life, beautiful, colorful. Take some time and check it out. I really think it's a great spot.
