YACHT CHARTER GRENADA
Grenada is called the “The Spice Island” and this island is bathed in the soft fragrance of tropical spices. Small and perfectly shaped, this Caribbean island has beautiful 45 beautiful beaches, shaded by palm trees and is set in a glorious blue ocean. Grenada is a quiet, relaxed island! There is a thousand of reasons to visit Grenada, but for those who love diving, Grenada offers one of the more exciting diving spots.
One of our most popular snorkeling sites is an underwater gallery of sculptures in our Molinere Beauséjour Marine Protected Area, that very much reflect Grenada’s culture. As artificial reefs, these sculptures are proving highly successful so far in attracting a stunning array of varied marine life. In doing so and attracting visitors, they have indeed fulfilled a role in easing the environmental pressure on other reefs in the locality. Molinere Bay Underwater Sculpture Park was the first of Jason deCaires Taylor’s underwater gardens. It was widely acclaimed as the first of its kind. The site is now listed as one of National Geographic’s 25 Wonders of the World.
A circle of 26 life-size hand-holding figures cast from local children linked by holding hands. The ring symbolizes the concept of life’s ongoing cycle and the ability of children to adapt to their surroundings. Of the many sculptures within the park, ‘Vicissitudes’ is perhaps the most recognizable.
The Lost Correspondent
A man working at his desk and typewriter, the desk covered with historical newspaper cuttings including some documenting Grenada’s involvement with Cuba. The work draws attention to the changes in how we communicate and depicts the lost correspondent as a relic in today’s society. This sculpture is located in 7m of water within the protected surrounds of a natural gully in the reef which very much affords the sense of being in an office.
16 female forms lie across an extensive sandy area within the reef. Exposed to the will of the seas this is a dynamic and evolving sculpture. At times the figures are hidden and at times they are uncovered and indeed rediscovered. The sculptures lie at a depth of 4m and are cast in concrete from a Grenadian lady, reflecting her elegant form.
