Easy shoreside snorkeling. Great for people that are new to snorkeling and experienced divers. Wide variety of fish, turtles are active in the morning. I usually pay to go on a boat ride to snorkel out in the ocean. Going to Bight Reef, I was able to see even large fish within 30 feet of the shore.

After reading the reviews, my daughter ventured to this place. It was surprisingly easy to find. We laid our towels down and started snorkeling. We saw lots of beautiful fish like the parrot fish but her favorite was seeing a big turtle. That made the trip! Must see....

Beach itself not too crowded and you can experience lots of underwater sea life. We saw rays, fish of all kinds, starfish, and I saw the biggest barracuda I have ever seen. Great if you don't want to spend the money for a snorkeling tour. Its free!!

Excellent snorkeling right off the beach. Find Coral Gardens Resort and swim on the outside of the orange buoys.

The snorkeling at Bight Reef is okay, but the area here was a little too crowded for our taste. There is easy access and also decent parking, but we felt Smith Reef was far superior as far as snorkeling. It was also a bigger area and had very few people there as opposed to Bight. If you swim to the... More

We snorkel at Bight Reef every time we stay at Beaches in Turks & Caicos. It is a short 5 minute walk down the beach. the reef is alive with a wide variety of sea life. We have seen an improvement in the number of fish this year as opposed to previous years. A must do when you visit Turks!... More

Drove to Bight Reef. Parked car by free beach access area. Had lunch at Somewhere Cafe and then went to beach to snorkel. East to get to by car. Easy to swim to reef to snorkel. Literally steps from shore! Saw plenty of fish. M daughter even saw a turtle.

A little disappointing in the lack of fish and marine life, although it was easy to get to for my family.....just off the beach. A little too populated IMHO. Nice that Somewhere cafe was right there
