This is a FANTASTIC beach - clean, gentle surf, uncrowded, easily accessible. Whatever you do, take 30 minutes and snorkel Bight Reef. Best thing you'll do all day. Within 5 minutes of entering we saw a stingray, a 2-foot diameter sea turtle (10 feet away), lobster, rockfish, spinefish, puffer fish, and at least 2 dozen more species I can't name.... More

We stayed at the Windsong so we had access to Bight Reef at our fingertips... lol. We Snorkelers there several times a day. I saw an angelfish, barracuda, dozens of Parrottfish, a trunkfish, and many more. The coral was not beautiful but it was adequate. It is a must see!! Snorkeling from the shore is awesome!

Bright reef will not be the place. It is however good for beginners, you will see fish, the guy on the beach sounding the horns when someone goes inside the roped off area is a bit annoying. It is however the spot for beach entrance night dives (20ft depth) Maybe more sea creatures come out at night. :-)

It's a must see. The Reef is 5 feet from the shore and the snorkeling is amazing. You won't be disaapointed. It's the best snorkeling location on the island by far.

Swimmers need to be aware that parts of Bight Reef are in a reef recovery zone that is clearly marked off with rope. Snorkeling is allowed around the outside periphery of the zone, but not inside the rope. Please respect this. The snorkeling is incredible in the areas that are allowed.

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.
