You can drive there ~ WARNING! Lots of theft in that area as far as car break ins. Don't lock your vehicle or leave any valuables in the car. You can also take a boat / snorkeling excursion to the reef which will cost you more, but you don't have the hassle of driving or the threat of theft. It's... More

We were so shocked by this amazing reef that we swam to right off the shore! It is beautiful and not crowded at all. For some reason, the people crowd around Coral Gardens not realizing this amazing reef is literally 1/4 of mile down the beach!

This is a great reef for snorkeling from shore. The center of the reef is protected as it recovers from a hurricane several years back. But the rest of the reef is gorgeous. Lots of brain coral, colorful fish, and if your lucky a barracuda or turtle.

We loved how easy it was to park and walk onto the beach. The beach is away from the busier hotel spots (both left and right of the reef), which was nice because there were fewer people to see or hear. My wife and I loved swimming, snorkeling, and resting on the beach.

The best off-beach snorkeling is found here. You can literally walk out into the water and go snorkeling right off the beach. Don't forget your snorkel gear!

Loved this! Very fun to leisurely swim around the reef. Right across from "Somewhere" restaurant. I'd reccommend walking here if you are anywhere nearby! We walked from our hotel, Sibonne.

Although a snorkeling trail is well-marked and it is right off the beach, the water is very deep and choppy. It was ambitious for novices.

It was very crowded at the bight reef. I made the mistake of snorkeling under a rope, and I scratched my back on fire coral. I have never felt such a burning pain. It didn't happen right away, so at first I thought that a giant jelly fish was on my back. In all fairness, I probably shouldn't have gone... More
