“Great snorkling”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

We went to the Bight Reef a couple of times during our visit to the Turks. It is the best reef snorkling I have ever done right from the beach. There were lots of coloured fish and coral. It is protected in the middle but you can see lots from going around the outside. Great for kids learning to snorkel as it is not too far from the beach. Turn on to the road for the Coral Gardens hotel and there are some spots to park on that road. There was a partially built hotel on the left and we use the beach in front of the hotel for our stuff. Great place:)

“Snorkeling off the beach”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

The only(?) place to go snorkeling directly of Grace Bay Beach (area), but small reef with few fish (compared to the big reef).
Good for those who can't or won't go on a boat trip and those with small children, but not a great experience.

“Awesome”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

Just grab a mask and a pair of flippers and you are set. The most amazing coral and fish there, by the beach, no need to get a boat, you just dive and its there. Managed to see a barracuda there also.

“Easily accessible, basically at the beach”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

The coral garden is protected by the so called trail marked with buoys and you should not swim inside the buoy circle. They have a guard which we found great. The system is working as there is plenty of fish and we even saw a large lobster. There is a great bar looking over the reef, it's called Somewhere.
