Swim in solitude

As it shears downhill, Gorda Peak spreads its rocky tendrils into the sea to reveal caves and grottos for the intrepid to explore above and below water.

Yachts approaching the dive site Mountain Point should keep an eye out for two mooring balls in front. Jump in with snorkelling gear and head for the cave in front of you – but beware the surge, which can push the weak and unaware onto sharp rocks and shallow reef.

Feeling brave? Take a deep breath, swim down and into the corridor between the rocks for about three metres, looking for the opening above. Your reward is your own private cave pool: glowing blue, glass-still water framed by sheer walls reaching up 12 metres to a vaulted ceiling and a small opening that casts shards of light. Simply magic and an experience that should be on everyone’s Caribbean bucket list
