Take a diving tour or snorkeling adventure out into the waters of the Caribbean Sea to discover the 75 works found within the Underwater Sculpture Park’s 800 square meters of space. This park pulls the masses away from fragile coral reefs found untouched by the 2004 hurricane Ivan in hopes they will remain protected for years to come.
The waters of Molinere Bay are rich with interesting volcanic rock formations, leaving it with some of the best-conserved coral reefs in Grenada. If you want to see whimsical creatures like eels, lobsters, and seahorses, then this is the best location for you!
3) Snorkeling At Grenada’s Sandy Island Is Ideal For Beginners
Sandy Island is close to our sister island of Carriacou, so it only takes a short boat ride to access this quiet little island. With sugary soft sand and the marine protected area just beyond shore, Sandy Island is one of the most pristine locations for snorkeling on a Grenada diving trip.
The entire coral reef in this marine protected area is flourishing with jewel-toned tropical fish, sea turtles, and so much more marine life, so it’s a great place for beginners to see amazing sea life without feeling overwhelmed.
4) Flamingo Bay Is Full Of Life
Flamingo Bay is another marine protected area in the shallow waters surrounding Grenada. If you are searching for a location well-known for having lots of stunning creatures to see below the water, this is the diving site for you!
Snorkeling enthusiasts will find thriving coral reefs, sea fans, and a wide variety of tropical fish in the waters of Flamingo Bay. You might also catch a glimpse of the following:
- Sea Turtles
- Flamingo Tongue Snail
- Manta Rays
- Reef Squid and Octopus
- Parrot Fish
5) See Nesting Sea Turtles And More Near Levera Beach
Levera Beach is one of the more popular locations for divers in Grenada, and its lush landscape is the perfect home for nesting sea turtles.
If you want to snorkel from this location, head out through the shallow water to Sugar Loaf Island. This small island is home to loads of marine life but no facilities for personal use. You’ll have to head to nearby Bathway Beach to find facilities after your dive.
Bathway Beach is a lively location with tons of space to share with tourists, watersports lovers, and snorkelers alike. The coral reef is accessible right from the beach and is frequented by marine life like starfish.
6) Snorkeling At Magazine Beach
Magazine Beach is a secluded white sand beach that’s also known as Aquarium Beach. Head to the south coast of Magazine Beach to find the best snorkeling in the area.
The coral reef is found just 150 feet from shore, so you won’t have to venture too deep into the waters to find an abundance of sea creatures and stunning corals to keep you occupied.
7) Lose The Crowds At Morne Rouge Bay
At Morne Rouge Bay, you’ll enjoy all the beauty of this tropical paradise without the droves of tourists. This is another great spot for beginners if you’re new to snorkeling, and the calm, clear waters are the perfect location to spot sea urchins, eels, starfish, turtles, and stingrays.
