We visited the reef 3 times this visit. The time we arrived at 7:30 am we were the only ones there. The sheer volume of beautiful fish and coral was amazing. It's a national treasure just 15 yards from the shore. There is a man that works for the lodging places who can help you with snorkel gear if you... More

We arrived at 9am today so my husband and boys could explore the reef, we ended up staying the full day. The chair rental fee from the beach attendant was totally reasonable for two chairs and an umbrella. This provided a nice bit of shade so I could read and relax while they snorkeled, sam, played ball etc. Breakfast at... More

You can definitely see a variety of fish at this reef, great considering you don't need to pay and take a boat tour. Some in our party claimed this was just as good as the one we saw on the boat tour but was better because it was free. The difficult part is that the area leading up to the... More

Snorkeling Bight reef was great. Lots to see but cost to rent chairs and equipment on the beach was expensive $10 per item and cash only operation. Also lots of warnings about not leaving valuables behind on beach. We didn't have an issue because the attendant at the beach wiped us out:) All good overall. I would go back better... More

The best part is you just walk into the water and start seeing things. It is not the best snorkeling we ever experienced, but it is easy to access, there are descriptive markers, and there were a lot of pretty fish. We did not see any rays or turtles, but other claimed they did.

COuldn't ask for better beach snorkeling. 3 kicks away from the reef with wide array of tropical fish and corals. Turtle grass nearby hosts Hawksbill and Green turtles regularly plus occasional visit from eagle rays.

It is a great place to start snorkeling. Literally walk off the shore to the reef. Our 9 year old had no problem accessing the reef. Lots of fish to see. Check it out.

I took my 10 year old with me to Bight Reef for a snorkeling trip. In another TripAdvisor Review someone recommended working "counter clockwise" to work with the current. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT if you are with children or someone who is not a good swimmer. We brought lifejackets, fins, masks, snorkels and an underwater camera with us. Initially, we... More

Great place to snorkel, clear water and lots of fish to see. Also turtles and stingrays. You can just walk in the water and start snorkelling...no need to get there by boat.

Considering how close to the shore this reef is and how accessible it is, we couldn't believe how good the snorkeling was. It definitely deserves the hype. Saw a beautiful turtle, a ray, and tons of beautiful fish. Such a great spot and well worth a visit for snorkeling! And the food at Somewhere's is solid too!
