Dragon Bay, one of Grenada's Marine Protected Areas, is one of the most popular spots on the island for snorkeling and diving. A series of sand channels provide guidance for divers towards a colorful reef, which features sponges, seahorses, and reef fish.
Located near the heart of Molinere, Dragon Bay is on the West coast of Grenada. You might want to drop by even if you aren't staying particularly close by. Grenada's beaches are hardly known for being secluded, but Dragon Bay is less exposed than the others, which makes it an excellent attraction for those of you who don't want to wander too far away, but would rather avoid the most hectic parts of town.
Dragon Bay slopes into an arch along the west coast. The beach features deep aquamarine waters that wash ashore dark tan sands which are backed by thick green trees.
The snack bar here is the ultimate convenience if you need a cold drink, or something to hold you over until dinner.
You will be able to use a public restroom at Dragon Bay. Happily, the off-shore waters are of good snorkeling quality, so bring along some equipment if you're hoping to find some interesting marine life.
