At T&C’s right now. The reef is small and largely roped off to protect the coral, but you can snorkel around the perimeter. At 1:30 pm: (sun overhead and more people): assorted small reef fish, 1 trunk fish, 1 trumpet fish, several parrot fish, 3 turtles). At 4:30 pm, sun lower and only one other person near by: many more reef fish, 2 turtles (one swam within 10 feet of me), 1 lobster, 2 trumpet fish, 2 trunk fish, saw parrot fish being cleaned by smaller fish. The reef is in then middle of a strip of beach, so will be better early or later in day. Watch the boats if you venture further out from the buoys.

I am not the strongest ocean swimmer and I appreciated how close the reef access was from the beach. You can see plenty of fish and coral right along the shore. The buoys mark the edges of the reef and you can float right around. If you swim a little further out you’ll see schools of fish and more ocean creatures. The reef is also right off the beach for wind song and the wymara so I felt safe to take a small of (sunscreen, towels, etc) and ask a guest to watch it while I did a quick reef swim. The reef stays pretty busy with lots of guests and visitors of all ages and skill levels taking in the sights. This is also a GREAT reef for kids since they don’t have to swim out.

Great day at this beach. Arrived about 10 am on a Thursday and beach was by no means super crowded at that point. No parking probs at that hour. Umbrella and 2 chairs will run you $40 for the day. Snorkeling was mellow saw lotsa fishy’s right off the beach. Waters beautiful, little restaurant on beach was great! Just go!

Right off to left of the Windsong. You can circle the reef in about 40 minutes. From what I could see, most of the coral is bleached out. Some color left in the deeper section. The picture is not quite accurate. You will see plenty of varieties of fish though. I even saw 3 Lion fish together along with a Puffer. They ringed off the reef so do not cross the barrier. Is it the best reef, no. I have been to better. But the water is calm around the reef, you will see fish and the beach is nice. How does it compare to Smith Reef. Unknown. Harder to get to. We did not make it there. Bottom line, my family enjoyed snorkeling around it.

This is one of the best near shore reefs for snorkeling. It's also kid/beginner friendly. When we visited in Feb 2021, the reef was flourishing with tons of corals, fish, and sea turtles. It is roped off for protection, so you swim around the edge, and there is still plenty to see!

A lot of the reef has buoys to protect it (don't go inside) but if you swim out past the buoys, especially at about the 2:00 position as you face out from the beach, there are some good coral formations. I saw an Eagle Ray out there once, and saw turtles every time I went out. Often the turtles are hanging out in the grassy areas to each side of the buoys.

The reef is easily accessible from the shore. I am not experienced as most and was able to enjoy all the reef had to offer. You can rent gear from the resort I stayed at for around $5.00, Windsong. There were so many colorful fish and beauty to observe.

The staff at Alexandra recommended this spot. After checking out snorkel gear from the resort we made the 15-20 min walk up the beach to the reef. Definitely worth it! A few people in our group even saw a sea turtle.

Smith's Reef was better, but we did see some turtles here and lots of fish. The coral isn't in good shape, which isn't uncommon these days. Watch out for boats. People in Provo are not conscientious boaters (we are boaters). I'd definitely take something to appear more visible in the water.

My husband and I paid for a snorkel cruise and we saw more her than on the cruise. We saw a few turtles but one little guy let us hang out with him for about 15 minutes. I was able to get some good photos of him too. We are looking forward to going back to snorkel here more on our trip.

Please stay outside the ripped off area and respect the wild life, don’t touch the coral or there will be nothing left for others to enjoy.
