Bight Reef snorkelling great for beginners

The reef is small and easy to navigate - the calm clear blue waters make it easy to view many forms of life. We saw stingrays, coral and blue tang.

Its right off the beach at Grace Bay. A nice, easy snorkeling with decent fish and coral - its marked and well worth it! The beach is just perfect and the water is perfectly clear.

Can walk to this right from the beach! We saw tons of fish and a sea turtle swan right up to us! Nice for a quick snorkel trip.

We visited Bight Reef in late February, having visited for the first time three years ago. The reef provides a great opportunity to see lots of interesting underwater life without having to book a snorkelling or scuba tour. Great for families and others who want to try snorkelling without investing in a longer experience. It is really quite amazing that... More

Highly recommend especially for novice snorkelers. Excellent snorkelling just steps off the shore. Roped off area to protect the reef that takes about 30 mins to navigate around. Color, size, and quantity of fish and also coral is excellent. Regular turtle and Ray sightings as well as lots of parrotfish, triggerfish, snapper, damselfish, etc. Great off the beach snorkelling!

When we went to bight reef (also known as Coral Gardens) the visibility was poor and the water was choppy with a bit of a current so it was difficult to really enjoy the small reef there. Although this spot is closer to the hotels on Grace bay, if you are serious about snorkeling, you must take a 20 minute... More

This is a blast. Offers a local fare, great food, a break from the high prices, and a party atmosphere.

I was here on a windy day, yet managed to snorkel several hundred yards from shore. Hard to find in the AM being there isn't a lot of snorkelers or signs. This was much more alive the Coral gardens, with a bunch of great fish/coral/ etc. to see. Had a great experience except for drinking a few waves along the... More

Nice reef but being rebuilt and is roped off, you will still see some great coral and fishes. Take your time and go around it a couple of times, I saw a Manta the second time around. There is a bar/food joint right on the beach in front of the reef. Good food, great drinks.
