This reef is very accessible and very easy to navigate. It is great for beginner snorkelers and enjoyable for snorkelers seeking a colorful underwater show.

A safe and easy place to practice or learn to snorkel. Just a few feet outside Coral Gardens hotel. There is no secure place to leave items while snorkeling.

Bight Reef is a nice reef that is easy to get to right off of the beach. The area is roped off so you swim around the perimeter. There are several different varieties of fish and some pretty coral. It is very good snorkeling for an area so close to shore.

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!
