|About these ratings|
On Grace Bay in Providenciales, you'll find a footpath just offshore near the Coral Gardens resort. Follow that path to floating buoys that will guide you on your Bight Reef snorkel. A series of signs will help you identify the different species that you find along the way. One TripAdvisor reviewer also offered the following advice: "Be sure to snorkel out to the buoys on the outer edges as those areas seemed to attract different fish."
No matter which of the reef's mini-caves and crevaces you explore, many varieties of colorful fish can be seen poking in and out of their habitat. If you're lucky, you'll even spot a sea turtle swimming nearby. And with water as shallow as 3 feet in some spots and as deep as 16 feet in others, the versatile reef suits all levels of snorkel experience. Recent travelers recommend the spot for kids due to the reef's proximity to the shore. Keep in mind that snorkeling is always better when the water is calmer, so save your underwater adventure for a fair weather day.
