Scuba diving is a passion for many people around the world. Scuba enthusiasts are willing to travel to the most secluded distant places around the planet if they are sure they will enjoy an exclusive dive, which is the case of Pink Gin Beach in the beautiful Caribbean island of Grenade.
Pink Gin beach which original name is "Pingouin" is said to have been named after a very popular and fancy cocktail from Great Britain that is made with Gin and a dash or two of Angostura Bitters. That is Gin the British way.
Diving in Grenada is one of those experiences no diver wants to miss; all the necessary services are available. Excellent hotels of different categories are located at short distances from the beach making it very easy to start your day early and enjoy the most of it.
Pink Gin beach is quite famous for its coral reef which homes hundreds of marine species. Grenada combines impressive wrecks like King Mitch and Shakem, a colorful Caribbean reef and nowadays the island features an underwater sculpture park which by itself could be a reason to dive here.
The complex of statues portrays men, women, folkloric characters from the Grenadian culture and many other elements that represent a common day to day scene that could take place anywhere. En route to the underwater statue display you will come across abundant schools of reef fish, gorgonians, hard coral and moray eels.
On a sandy bottom at around 4.5 m depth you will find the most celebrated sculpture in the underwater gallery, "Vicissitudes" a circle of 26 life-sized figures holding hands.
Pink Gin beach has many convenient features that make it an ideal spot for divers, it is next to La Source hotel, which covers 40 acres of tropical grounds in the south west of Grenada and very near the picturesque island‘s capital St George's. Another element that keeps this spot in the radar of divers is its close proximity to the famous Bianca C wreck.
La Source has become one of the best selling hotels. The spa, staff, food, drinks and activities all receive excellent reports, all this together with the marine bottoms and attractions has made Pink Gin one of the most attractive diving holidays in Grenada.
