After walking 30 minutes from our resort we asked a man walking back with snorkel gear in hand where the snorkeling reef was and he said it was about a 100 yards further down the beach inside a ring of red buoys which I assumed were to mark the reef and for boating navigation. My son and I walked a... More

The snorkeling at Bight Reef is the best off shore snorkeling we've ever done. We saw an abundance of Parrot Fish, Snapper, Grouper, a Puffer Fish, a Lion Fish, some barracuda, and some people we talked to saw a turtle. The water isn't so shallow that you feel like you're going to graze the coral, yet it's not so deep... More

Nice place to snorkel. Too bad that it is closed off where the coral is abundant. This is also a spot where you can snuba. Pick the snuba boating excursion, not much to see here. Water is not too deep.

This beach is beautiful! The snorkeling, however, was not very good. We did not see much and it is roped off so you can only snorkel in designated areas. A little more crowded than Coral Reef but the beach itself is beautiful and relaxing!

We spent almost everyday snorkeling here. We bought swim noodles at the IGA and swam around the protected reef. You can not go into the center circle or the man with the bullhorn will yell at you. There is plenty to see outside the ropes, but everyday people would go into the circle and harm the coral. We saw many... More

We snorkeled at Smiths Reef and about North and Middle Caicos Islands, but we saw the most fish and greatest variety of fish at this reef.

We had a great snorkel trip, but luckily we had been warned about theft, so we brought all of our stuff with us, but my wife put some random bags on our floor mats just to see what happened (doors unlocked, windows opened, as suggested). Sure enough, when we got back, the bags were moved...definitely not a good idea to... More

very cool roped off coral reef area that you can get to right off the beach. tons of different kinds of fish and marine life. we went here several times on our trip and saw different things each time. Make sure you try the restaurant right on the beach with yellow umbrellas, great food and drinks for awesome prices!

Brought my own snorkeling equipment and spent a great morning at Bight Reef. Area was well marked and you could spend as much time as you wanted. Saw some really cool fish.
