Kiddel Bay
Looking for a real “Off the Beaten Track” beach and great snorkeling?

Frustrated when trying to find parking at a North Shore National Park beach?

Are the waves breaking on the north making for difficult swimming or snorkeling?

If you don’t mind sacrificing a sand beach for a cobblestone and coral rubble beach, an ideal alternative might be Kiddel Bay on the South Shore located just west of salt Pond Bay.

If you snorkel out to on the western shore of Kiddel Bay, you will come to a reef, which extends out off the point. A series of rocks rises above the waterline. Below the surface you’ll find deep depressions, grooves, arches and tunnels full of colorful corals and sponges as well as a vast array of tropical reef fish and sea creatures. The arches and tunnels are about 10 – 15 feet deep and are usually full of small fish. It’s a great challenge for free divers ,who can swim through one or a series of tunnels depending on their skill. For less skilled snorkelers the rock lined coasts on both sides of the bay still offer plenty to see and to enjoy.
