Get Wet

Of course there are other ways to get on the water, either taking a sunset cruise or snorkeling at the Molinere Underwater Sculpture Park or even diving on a shipwreck. Our concierge will be happy to arrange one of these water activities for you. Contact us  at frontdesk@laluna.com

Want to keep it simple, just head down to our water-sports and grab a paddle-board, kayak  or hobie cat and explore the many bays that lie along the coastline. Take some pocket change, you may want to stop off at a beach bar that calls to you to enjoy an iced cold local beer. Or just don some of our snorkeling equipment and explore the underwater off our beach, which is considered one the better snorkeling sites in Grenada.

However you do it, get out on or in the water. The beauty of the Caribbean in January is being able to dive into the turquoise waters with your swimsuit without a wetsuit.
