Folkestone Marine Park & Museum
OLKESTONE MARINE PARK, St. James
About one mile north of Holetown is the government-run Folkestone Marine
Park. This is basically an underwater park with exhibits, diving and beach
facilities. Folkestone has a good beach, many water-related activities,
along with fresh water showers and shops. There is an interpretive center
and museum with marine and coastal environment displays, exhibits of the
island?s fishing industry and a salt water aquarium.
The underwater park zone extends from Sandy Lane to Colony Club and you can
rent gear for snorkeling around the fringe reef, or secure a boat for
diving. A glass bottom boat also plies the area.
|Just past Holetown, and next door to St. James Parish Church.|
