DIVE WWTake advantage of two Dive Worldwide deals this summer – stay seven nights and pay for six, plus save 10% off accommodation – to maximise the savings on a diving adventure in Grenada when staying at the luxury all-inclusive Spice Island Beach Resort. But hurry as bookings must be made before 30 June 2016.

Located on Grand Anse beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, the Spice Island Resort is a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Accommodation options here range from the superb to the spectacular. The 64 beachfront suites feature exterior terraces and private lawn gardens – 17 of which also boast their own private swimming pool. Facilities include a fitness centre, a boutique, complimentary non-motorised water sports, tennis and bicycles. Guests can also enjoy complimentary green fees at the 9-hole Grenada Golf Club, plus, perfect for families, is the Nutmeg Pod, a supervised play area available for children aged 3-12 years old.

This diver-dedicated resort is also suitable for non-divers.

Grenada is renowned for its large portfolio of wrecks, the most famous being the Bianca C dubbed the Titanic of the Caribbean.
