With white sand beaches, azure waters and lush rainforests, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d stepped into a Caribbean postcard on arrival into Grenada. The scuba diving here really delivers too, whether learning to dive or already being a seasoned underwater enthusiast. There are a number of excellent hotels from which divers can base themselves, and a range of dive sites to encompass sloping reefs, wrecks and even an underwater sculpture park. Diving holidays in Grenada are ideal for couples, solo travellers and families as there is something for everyone here, and the warmth and generosity of the locals leaves a lasting impression.

Casting off from the perfect crescent moon talcum powder Grand Anse beach, the country’s best dive sites can be reached within a 20 minute speedboat journey. Sloping reefs are teeming with clouds of purple Creole wrasses, populated with hiding reef octopus and surveyed by hawksbill turtles who dip in to nibble at sponges. Beds of seagrass carpet the floor and a careful explore amongst the waving tendrils will expose longnose seahorses, with green turtles grazing on the grass. Diving holidays in Grenada are great for those keen on wrecks, with 12 local wrecks to explore.
