BARBADOS - diving
THE SOUTH WEST COAST
At approximately 1000m from shore, the bank reef runs
parallel to shore and is continuous with the west coast bank reef.
Further north (off Pico Tenerife), the bottom type changes
abruptly as a result of a submarine canyon. To the north of the canyon
the shelf is terraced and carbonate rich, while to the south there is
more siliclastic material and a gentler slope
