The best diving is primarily along the west and south coast,
where the Caribbean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean and, as such, the
variety of diving available covers a range suitable for everyone.
The Bubblemakers can take their first plunge in warm waters, the
inexperienced can explore the colourful coral gardens and shallow
reefs and the experienced can enjoy adrenaline fuelled drift dives
and deep wreck explorations. Speaking of which, the Bianca C
resides here and, due to her size, is considered to be the
Caribbean's titanic so we fully expect all you advanced divers to
float to the bow and flay your arms back in true DiCaprio-Winslet
Above the waves, the soft-sand and near empty beaches are reason
alone to visit. The island is also famous for its spices (all hail
the nutmeg) and annual carnival. In 1783 nutmeg replaced sugar as
the main crop after the British took the island from the French and
today the island supplies approximately 20% of the world's market.
As for the carnival, this lavish annual affair occupies ten days of
the year in August and sees a medley of colour, music and ancient
traditions paraded through the streets creating a party not to be
missed. All in all Grenada is the perfect Caribbean destination for
beach bums and aqua adventurers alike.
