The best dive sites in La Martinique - The Pearl Islet

 

Located 2,8 km off the coast, Pearl Islet is the northernmost dive site around Martinique. Down the Dominican Channel, off Anse Couleuvre ('Grass-snake Cove'), the Pearl looks like a giant volcanic boulder! In pristine waters, you'll find several drop-offs, ranging from 20 to 60 meters depth, where the fauna has invaded any niche possible... Barracudas, massive schools of jacks / Big-eye Trevalies, turtles, groupers, snappers, parrotfish... and a magnificent flora. Some pelagic fish come cruising by every now and then, along with some dolphins. Less dived than other sites because of the distance from the coast, this site is truly stunning. Be aware that the current can be raging!!
