Venture along the powder-soft sands to the water’s edge and immerse yourself beneath the rippling turquoise waves to uncover one of St Lucia’s most mesmerising spectacles. The underwater world that surrounds this tropical island is brimming with multicoloured marine life, rich coral reefs and historic shipwrecks that must be seen to be believed. The ecologically rich waters mean there are many professional diving centres - in addition to exceptional diving staff located in many luxury hotels and resorts - that are on hand to help you learn, develop and perfect your skills during your luxury holiday. So, whether you’re a diving novice or PADI-qualified, remember to pack your underwater camera and head to one of the island’s famous dive sites for your own enchanting diving experience in St Lucia.

Where To Dive In St Lucia
Many of St Lucia’s most popular dive sites centre around the gin-clear waters of the world-renowned Soufriere Marine Reserve. From multicoloured coral reefs to schools of tropical fish, the biodiversity beneath the surface is enough to mesmerise even the most experienced of divers. From bright orange sponges at Superman’s Flight, seahorses at the plunging Piton Wall and Hawksbill and Green Turtles at Turtle Reef in the bay of Anse Chastanet, the wealth of marine beauty is nothing short of staggering. Venture a little further from the shore and you'll find La Roche, a small islet located close to Pigeon Island. Amongst the rippling blue waters of this secluded dive site, expect to spot enormous lobsters and large schools of Southern Senetts as you glide through the canyon-covered underwater landscape.

Learn To Dive In St Lucia
For those who aren’t PADI-certified or desire to dive for the first time, Bodyholiday’s resort course provides the perfect chance to learn. After practicing in the pool and learning the basics with a professional instructor, pursue your newly found passion in the beautiful reef close to the resort, submersing yourself 6 metres beneath the surface. Alternatively, gain your PADI certification by enrolling on the resort’s 2-3 day course – where better than the Caribbean to perfect a new skill?

Luxury Hotels In St Lucia
Situated by a picturesque marina on the Caribbean coastline, The Landings has the perfect setting for unwinding on the soft sand beach or exploring the mesmerising marine life by snorkelling and scuba-diving. Dedicate a day to exploring by hiring a private boat charter, giving you the freedom to explore above water, or retire to the impressive Soleil Spa for some post-diving relaxation. For families, Cap Maison’s PADI “Bubblemaker” experience gives eight and nine-year-olds a taste of St Lucia’s warm waters with expert tuition, leaving adults free to indulge at one of the resort’s restaurants and bars.
