Le Rocher du Diamant / Diamond Rock

Diamond Rock is, without a shadow of a doubt, the most beautiful dive site in Martinique, and one with a strong reputation all over the Caribbeans! This immense volcanic rock towers over 175 meters high and stands about 5 km from the coast. Depending on your dive certification and your experience, you can enter the site differently: to the north, a sheltered cove is ideal for first timers; for experienced divers, a beautiful drop-off plummets down to 40 meters along the rock. To the west, a breathtaking cathedral-shaped crack starting around 16 meters actually pierces the whole island from side to side! You can get access from an arch through which you can observe some light rays... The diversity and abundance of marine life are astonishing, matching the dramatic geological features: a lot of different tropical reef fish, turtles, moray eels, Spanish mackerels, lots of crustaceans (crayfish, shrimps and crabs) hidden in the crevices. Check out the flora, also surprisingly diverse: gorgonian fans, soft corals, sponges, anemones... A truly unmissable dive site that deserves several dives to grasp its true beauty!
