Spanish Bay Reef

Named for the old Spanish Bay Reef Resort, Spanish Bay Reef is a very popular shore dive with locals and visitors alike. Just 200ft from the man-made breakwater lies a mini wall running parallel with the shoreline. Diving here during high tide is best as low tide drops the visibility significantly.

You’ll see typical Caribbean life like nurse and reef sharks, possible eagle rays, turtles, stingrays, and lots of fish: snapper, angelfish, grunts, parrot fish, and grouper.
