Nartical

Don’t miss the spectacular underwater sculpture park in Moliniere Bay. The waters are home to sixty-five sculptures covering an area of 800 sq metres just a short 20 minute boat ride from Grand Anse Beach, two miles north of the capital. Now part of a designated National Marine Park the artificial structures have provided a new base for marine life and create a fascinating and artistic change from areas of coral reef found throughout the Caribbean.

Splash Out

St_George_Annadale_FallsSitting on the outskirts of St George Annandale Falls is an idyllic waterfall with a 9 metre (30ft) drop, surrounded by a grotto of lush vegetation. If you are feeling the heat after the short yet stunning garden walk, there is also a pool beneath the falls where you can take a refreshing swim. There are usually a few local adventure enthusiasts on hand taking donations in return for a great show where you will witness the daredevils jumping from the top of the cliffs.
