We are beginner snorkelers, but we loved this reef! We saw a ton of fish, big and small, and even an eel! The reef is roped off because humans were destroying it, so don't go inside the ropes and be careful with your flippers. We came down here 3 times to look at the fish and always saw something new....

this beach was amazing!!! The nicest place to snorkel there was a walk but it was a beautiful walk there was white sand everywhere and there were little tide pools with colorful fish, crabs, sea stars, and much more!! The snorkeling was also incredible. As soon as you stick your head under water there were so many colorful fish. We... More

We enjoyed snorkeling at The Bight. There were a good amount of fish some schools. The water visibility was not great a little cloudy but we really enjoyed the day. My sister in law was fairly new to snorkeling and she found it easy to get around , the water was not to rough. We saw a small Manta Ray... More

Good off shore snorkeling, but crowded, with morons who apparently could not read well enough to follow the very clear instructions to stay OUT of the preservation area. Very irritating and leading to everyone else yelling and gesticulating to convince them to get out of there. Recommend taking a snorkel trip with Dive Provo or Caicos Adventures instead.

Bight Reef is right off the beach on Grace Bay (about a 10-minute walk from the Beaches Resort). You can snorkel around the edges of the rope that protects the main part of the reef and see a variety of colorful fish feeding off the reef, which extends out beyond the roped-off area in spots. We even saw a 4-foot... More

The reef is a few feet off the beach by Coral Gardens Hotel. The hotel has beach chairs and umbrellas for its guests but their kindly staff felt sorry for my wife and let us use the chairs. I assume they were expecting a tip but as I did not bring any cash with me to the beach, I told... More

This was such a fantastic reef, and right off the shore of Grace Bay. It's a great place for novices, but we saw fish we had never seen, and we have dived all over the Caribbean. We saw cow fish, blowfish, grunts, spiny lobster, huge parrot fish, as well as the usual suspects.

Saw a barracuda and turtles along w/ lots of beautiful fish. We rented snorkels and fins for $20 for two hours. My daughter got burned by the rope and the gentleman rushed to get her fresh aloe to relieve the pain. It was almost one hour walk from our hotel, but we saw a lot and it was worth it.
