With the average 30 to 45 minute dive session burning over 500 calories a go, there’s no such thing as over-indulgence on a dive holiday.

Divers with a sweet tooth will be spoilt for choice on the Spice Island of Grenada. Visit between 18th and 24th August 2014 and join in Grenada’s first ever Chocolate Festival.

Alternatively, for those looking for world class cuisine then Bonaire, which is also widely regarded as the Caribbean’s top shore diving destination, is the ideal offering.
