As experienced snorkelers, we were very surprised by the variety and beauty of this spot, as it is so close to the shore resort area. Plenty of fish, and gorgeous coral which is well-kept inside of the roped-off area. We saw Sea Urchins, beautiful purple fans, hawksbill turtles, queen angelfish, and even a spotted eel. A great snorkel spot for... More

As Novice Snorkellers we really enjoyed this area. Easy to get to and you don't need to swim out very far to see marine life. It was a little wavy on the day we went so that made it a little tough on us weaker swimmers, but we were still able to see a lot. I will definitely go back... More

Locals rent snorkeling gear at the Reef for $20! A true bargain and worth every penny. The reef is beautiful. Huge turtles, amazing, colorful fish. Perfect spot for beginners or more experienced snorkelers.

easy, walk off the shore to see nice fish and some coral. (Much of the coral is bleached, but still plenty of fish around.)

It is a lovely sight to see. My grandchildren always take their go pros snorkeling and get the most amazing pictures. Everyone loves... More

If you're just a casual snorkelled this is perfect. Not as good as the deep walls around the islands, but probably the best walking straight off the beach.. Stick to the edges to see the bigger creatures (rays, turtles, etc)

Bight Reef is an easy snorkeling spot as you can step right off the beach into the water and the reef is right there. It stays fairly shallow near the beach for beginning snorkelers just starting out. In fast, we saw some of our best fish sightings closer in. Big variety including grouper, puffer fish, snapper, angel fish, eel, barracuda,... More

How can you walk right out of your hotel and go right to a reef and not have a good time? Great snorkeling right there with great sea life. Just don't be one of the dolts that goes in the roped off area it says "Keep out" for a reason.

We grabbed our gear & got a taxi to Bight Reef. They wanted $10 for a beach chair, so we threw our towels down & just enjoyed the beach. Snorkeling was excellent. Spotted rays, turtles, angel fish, parrot fish. A nice variety. My husband & I are divers, but we had several novices with us & they really enjoyed a... More
