When the waves are gone on the North Shore it’s time to explore the reefs! Backpackers is situated right at Three Tables Beach and only a short walk to Sharks Cove, which are two of the best places to snorkel and S.C.U.B.A on the island. Explore the hundreds of underwater caves carved within the reef and experience the famous “blue room”.
The reefs out front are home to many green sea turtles who graze for seaweed. Just one of the many marine acquaintances you will encounter if you venture out into the water. Both reefs are protected as marine sanctuaries, which means its always teeming with life. Grab some snorkel gear from the Backpackers stash or talk to us and we will get you set up with a trained S.C.U.B.A guide with our friends at Deep Ecology.
