A good days activity was to walk from grace bay to Smith's reef, snorkeling wherever we liked... after the monstrosities of Beaches resorts, it thins out and becomes relatively remote. Roundtrip was Challenging enough to keep the active 17 year old engaged

The place is rather simple, a parking lot, a few benches and plenty of sun, beach and turquoise waters. Come over Thursday night for the Fish fry and a taste of local community.

It's a beautiful beach, a prolongation of grace bay beach. Inside you can fine two points for snorkeling, those are very very lame, are a bunch of buoys connect with a rope and you can't cross it . Some people tell us that they saw a lot of fishes but we did not.

Our cottage we rented was right on the beach of this National park. Smith's Reef was a great place to snorkel and the sands were as soft as powder.

I just love staring out over the ocean and seeing this beautiful sea park. You can gaze where the surf hits the coral reef that lines the island. Very relaxing. If you do nothing else on island, just take some time to take your mind off your worldy problems and give thank you are lucky enough to enjoy the beauty... More

We walked several days of our week long stay along one of the most beautiful stretches of beach in the world that forms a part of Grace Bay and Princess Alexandra National Park. The dazzling shades of blue colours of the water and the powdery soft sand beach were breathtaking.

We went snorkeling at Smith's Reef and had a lot better luck this time than we did a year ago. If you are down by the boat canal area, you have to swim way out to see anything. We went the opposite direction (to the right if you are facing the ocean) and found fantastic fish in front of the... More
