Beautiful dives are scattered around the world but nowhere has so many in such a concentrated area quite like the Caribbean, here are 11 of the best scuba dives to enjoy:
1. Champagne Reef, Dominica
Located on the Nature Island of Dominica Champagne Reef is one Jacques Cousteau's top ten favourite dives and it is easy to see why.
What makes this dive so unique is that, as the name suggests, divers get the sensation of swimming through Champagne thanks to the bubbles which emerge from tiny holes in the reef. The bubbles are created by the volcanic activity happening below the surface. As well as the bubbles the reef is also home to lobster, parrot fish and a resident population of Hawksbill turtles.
No boat is required as the site is easily accessible from the shore and for those less experienced the spectacle can also be enjoyed from above the surface with snorkels.
