Sadly, this stretch of coral has been beaten down pretty well. We still saw some great fish, especially on the eastern end. Beach was great.

lol.. we went snorkeling in the area with heavy tides, we did not know that there was a "restricted" area, tides took us there but as we know not to "touch, take or step" on the corral it bummed us out that we were told to get out.. we were not in the area on purpose, the tide rolled us... More

More remote even though in Grace Bay.. Loved snorkelling here but Coral Reef was good too. We had a great day at Bight Reef though but it is good swim out to the reef so be careful!

Easy access right off of Grace Beach in front of Coral Gardens and the Windsong Resort. The reef is marked off by buoys and you can snorkel over the top just on the edges. Snorkeling is ok, the reef is suffering.

If you were staying in Grace Bay Bight Reef is a must do. It is so close and so easy to do and we decided to do it twice. We took our snorkel, mask and fins and spent as much time down there as we wanted to. We saw a wide array of fish and coral. We have definitely seen... More

Would have loved to give this a 5 rating but despite hiding my beach bag it was stolen. I am a first time snorkeler and this reef was an awesome place for my "maiden voyage" however having my beach bag stolen was a real letdown after that. I had read reviews warning of theft in the area so I was... More

Reef was easy to access. Water was too choppy to see much. In calm water, it should be a nice reef for beginning snorkeler.

Bight Reef was about a 20 minute walk down from the Alexandra Resort. The reef is roped off with red buoys to help you find where it is while you are walking. It is right in front of the Windsong Resort. DO NOT snorkel/swim inside the roped off barrier. We found the right side much better for fish and coral.... More

a short walk west from Beaches ... this is a fantastic reef to snorkel and see a variety of corals and marine life. Last week I saw grouper, puffer, barracuda, rays, snapper, angel fish ....
