At the ocen front of Windsong resort/ Coral Reef resort you can enjoy an easy access reef for all family. You can see turtles, rays, even barracudas or ocassionaly nurse sharks in between hundreds of fishes. Amazing natural place at hand´s reach from the beach.

Having done snorkeling "trips" while in T&C, I saw more sea life in and around Bight Reef than anywhere. The earlier am outings provided more variety of marine life perhaps due to less people. At times it became more crowded and many couldn't stay out...More

We had a great time snorkeling here. Rented two chairs and umbrella for $40 for the day. Spendy but we needed a place to sit and it was worth it. Hubs saw lots of turtles. We entered at the Somewhere Cafe beach access.

My 16 and 13 year old and I swam just off the beach to the reef. Lots of coral and fish. We saw a huge lobster. Very worthwhile for moderate swimmers.

Hey sorry I missed this. I did see a few rays while I was there right off the beach. Hopefully you saw some cool stuff!

I'm pretty sure the cruise ships all come in over at Grand Turk. This is on another one of the islands. Bight reef is on Provo...so not all that close although they do have a ferry between the islands
