On land, Grenada offers visitors a nice mix of natural and cultural attractions to visit – but there is a whole world off the coast that shouldn’t be overlooked. Coral reef systems, ship wrecks, a volcano, and even an artistic museum exist in the waters that surround the island of Grenada. One of the best ways to make sure you get to see all of this, and more, is to plan some time to snorkel.
Grenada has great snorkeling sites on both the northern and southern tips of the main island, plus surrounding Grenada’s sister island’s of Carriacou and Petite Martinique. From the shores of many beaches, like Grand Anse Beach, you’ll have easy access to some pretty amazing underwater sites, but there are a few in particular that you should make a point to visit.
One is the Underwater Sculpture Park near Moliniere Point. It is the first of its kind in the Caribbean, and it both artistic and slightly haunting. The largest underwater ship wreck, the Bianca C, in the region is also located off these shores, and an underwater volcano exists to be explored as well.
If you’re looking forward to exploring below the water’s surface you might enjoy Flamingo Bay. The reef here starts at nine feet then slopes to depths of 30 feet, then ending in a drop off. It is a bit rugged, with its sharp finger corals, but is has been noted as the “critter capital of Grenada” so there is plenty to see. This snorkeling site is situated in Molinere, Grenada.
