With pristine beaches dotting its coast, lush wildlife parks and some of the best snorkelling and diving in the Caribbean, there’s something for every traveller on this diverse island. Vacationers can embrace the local culture and experience the vibrant nightlife in West End while those looking for a more traditional resort experience can soak up the sun at one of the beach resorts. Many resorts offer dive packages for guests to explore dive sites, shipwrecks, underwater caves and the second largest barrier reef in the world.
