Snorkeling Spots - The Bahamas - Morley

One of the greatest things about being a homeowner in the Bahamas Islands is the almost endless supply of beaches, reefs, and underwater adventure opportunities. Whether you're already a snorkeler or have no idea how it differs from scuba diving, you'll find plenty of hotspots near Nassau and Paradise Island homes for sale. To give you a bit of a head start, our agents have compiled a quick list of some local favorites:

  1. Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park
    We're going to start off with a hotspot that many consider the best place for snorkeling in all of The Bahamas. Spanning 176 square miles, the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park is recognizable to many James Bond fans as the backdrop for parts of Thunderball and Never Say Never Again. In addition to snorkeling, you'll also find side attractions, including a 22-square-mile park and the luxurious Sandals Emerald Bay resort.

  2. Andros Barrier Reef
    One of the other most popular diving locations in The Bahamas is the Andros Barrier Reef, which is only accessible by boat. Once you've scheduled a boat tour and arrived at the reef, you'll be greeted with opportunities to view more than 150 species of fish, including the Nassau Grouper, angelfish, snapper, and many others. You'll also be given access to the famous "Tongue of the Ocean," an undersea cliff that starts at 60 feet below the surface and drops to depths of 5,000+ feet.

  3. Goulding Cay ReefNew Providence
    It's sometimes hard to believe that some of the places listed here are even real, and that includes the Goulding Cay ReefLocated less than an hour from Nassau, this shallow reef is perfect for snorkelers of all experience levels. The reef itself is mostly elkhorn coral, and you'll see marine life everywhere you look. It's recognized as one of the most popular shallow snorkeling locations, making it wonderful for kids and adults.

  4. Clifton Heritage ParkNew Providence
    Don't let the fact that part of the Clifton Heritage Park—aptly named Jaws Beach—was the setting for Jaws the Revenge deter you from this gorgeous snorkeling spot. You won't find any dangerous great white sharks here. Instead, you'll find many fish species, beautiful natural and man-made reefs, and even a giant underwater sculpture called Ocean Atlas.

  5. Rose Island Reef — East of Paradise Island
    The Rose Island Reef is also only accessible by boat, but the trip is more than worth it. One of the greatest benefits of this location that's near many Paradise Island homes for sale is that it's relatively remote, so you won't find many people there most of the time. This is another shallow reef that allows both adults and children to easily come into contact with a variety of marine life.

  6. Adelaide Beach — New Providence
    This is another great that never seems to get especially busy. Depending on where you stay, you may be able to walk to Adelaide Beach on foot. If not, it's easily accessible by car or bus. Many people use this beach as a starter location if they don't have a lot of experience snorkeling, making it perfect for family outings. While it's true that it's not the most exciting reef in terms of underwater sightings, it definitely belongs on your list of places to explore.
