We went on a very quiet day, though I'm not sure if this is characteristic of the area. The few folks on the beach were friendly and helpful. We started at the far west beach and worked our way east. A surprisingly good array of coral and fish very close to the shore. Recommended for a partial day trip (no... More

nice reef with national park lifeguards who keep an eye on the reef, and call out to anyone who gets too close to top of the protected reef area

Make sure you go very early in the morning, as it gets extremely busy the later it gets. We went at around 10 am and it had just started getting congested. The snorkeling was wonderful. We saw a ton of fish, some sea turtles, a couple stingray, and a HUGE barracuda. It was amazing. A little unsettling, but hey...we were... More

This is a great reef for snorkeling that is close to beach and is an easy swim. The reef is roped off to prevent casual snorkelers from destroying the delicate coral growth. Snorkelers can swim around the rope perimeter and see plenty of small, colorful tropical reef fish. Easy for kids and adults to reach. Its on Grace Bay and... More

they have the entire area at Coral Gardens roped off so the snorkeling is limited to just the sides of the reef. I suggest chartering (worth the $) and go off shore in Grace Bay for great snorkeling!

Took a day trip to snorkel and was not disappointed. Tons of fish and beautiful calm, clear water. So happy we went.

This snorkeling spot in front of windsong resort is great for families with children. It's close to the shoreline. There aren't heavy currents. There were plenty of fish and even a couple of sea turtles. The downside is that it does get crowded. Stay outside the roped area.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed walking to Bight Reef in front of Coral Gardens each morning. The water is incredibly calm. We saw sea turtles, Smiley the barracuda, Queen Angel, butterfly fish, parrot fish, Royal Grammas, blue tangs,huge spiny lobsters, etc. There are some amazing beautiful corals and it is very easy to swim around the red buoy's that...

To have a place that you can walk right into the water from the beach and see some great marine life is really a plus. However, this ease of access means that sometimes it can get a little crowded, especially very close to shore. I recommend going out to the deeper waters where there aren't as many small children and... More

This is a 10 minute walk down from Beaches resort to the Windsong resort beach. Signs are up , follow the red floats and don't touch the reef!! My kids loved it!!! Easy entrance from... More
