Truly the Unspoiled Queen - This little island was made for divers - There are no beaches so no over crowding by typical tourists. No casinoes/shopping malls/diamond stores so not a popular cruise ship stop. What they do have is some of the best dive sites in the Caribbean. Under water you will find an abundance of marine life - turtles, nudibranch, octopus, eagles rays, sting rays, sharks, squid, sea horses and more. Above water you will find a welcomeing islanders, safe surroundings, comfortable hotels, great food and ability to escape the ordinary.
