Diving#5 in Best Things To Do in Grenada
- 0.0Food Scene
If you're spending your Grenada getaway above the surface rather than below it, you're missing out on some truly spectacular scenery. More than 30 dive sites can be found off the coasts of Grenada Island, Carriacou, and Petit Martinique, including shipwrecks and coral reefs. One of the most popular dive sites, the Bianca C Ship Wreck, sits near Carriacou's shores. The Bianca C—a cruise liner that sank in 1961—has earned the nickname "Titanic of the Caribbean" due to its massive size. Meanwhile, Flamingo Bay's vivid coral and abundant marine life make for a more colorful dive.
For a unique underwater experience, avid divers recommend visiting the Underwater Sculpture Park. Resting at the bottom of Moliniere Bay in St. George's, the Underwater Sculpture Park's subsea art installation depicts scenes from Grenadian culture and folklore. Although some divers describe the park's iconic "Ring of Children" as somewhat eerie, one TripAdvisor user writes that "If you want to get surprised about finding something new under water, this is a great way to achieve it."
Numerous companies offer guided dives to the islands' underwater attractions. (Previous visitors highly recommend Dive Grenada and ScubaTech Grenada.) Times and prices vary depending on the company you choose and the experience you wish to have. To learn more, visit the Grenada Tourism Board's website.

#1 St. George's
Many travelers that have wandered the narrow streets of St. George's say that it's almost like walking through an oil painting. The vivid, brightly painted houses exude an aura of colonialism. In fact, Grenada's capital city—located on Grenada Island's southwestern shore—has earned the unofficial title of the most beautiful harbor town in the Caribbean.
Devote an hour or two to exploring St. George's marina (known as the Carenage), where you'll find plenty of restaurants serving up local cuisine with a side of spectacular views. But there's much more to this city than its postcard-worthy appearance. St. George's serves as a great place to get a whirlwind introduction to Grenadian culture. Discover the islands' colonial history at Fort Frederick and Fort George and learn about local spices at Market Square.
