Snorkeling is a hobby people of all ages can enjoy. It’s a great way to explore the underwater world without receiving a scuba diving certification. Plus, there are so many amazing places in the Caribbean that have incredible snorkeling spots, including the Grenadines. Below are the top snorkel spots to try in the Grenadines.
This privately owned island is a gorgeous place to snorkel and explore. You know a place must be good if it attracts celebrities, and many celebrities own beautiful homes on Mustique or visit frequently. Here, you’ll have access to amazing beaches, lagoons, and coves.
There are two particular snorkeling spots around Mustique you can’t miss. For one, Gallicaux Bay is off the beaten path but worth the trek. There will be a breathtaking reef waiting for you. And on the southwestern edge of the island, you’ll find Lagoon Bay. The shallow bay makes it the perfect place for beginner snorkelers to advance their skills.
Bequia is an island shaped like a horseshoe, and it is one of the largest islands in the Grenadines. It’s known for many biodiverse reefs that offer plenty to explore. Make sure you stop at Industry and Spring Bay. The calm waters make snorkeling relaxing, and you can rest on the beautiful beach when you need a break from the water.
And if you’re interested in exploring the island chain’s nurse sharks, you must stop by Princess Margaret Bay. Located only 10 miles from St. Vincents, it’s a great, convenient place to stop. Plus, it allows you to see amazing Grenadine wildlife up close and personal.
Carriacou Island has so much to offer! It has earned the nickname Isle of Reefs, and you’ll soon discover why once you plunge into the warm, Caribbean water. Immerse yourself in a world filled with tropical fish, gorgeous stingrays, and brain coral. You’ll also swim with an amazing array of underwater wildlife.
Ensure you make a stop at Sandy Island. Reefs are directly below the surface at 5 to 20 feet, making it an incredible place to explore. Listen quietly, and you may even hear the sound of migrating humpback whales.
Ensure you stop by one of these snorkeling spots the next time you’re vacationing in the Grenadines. Trust us—you won’t be disappointed!
