The first underwater sculpture park work started in the year 2006 on a sandy ocean in infertile Molinere bay.  Now this area has become favorite place for people to come here and enjoy in water by doing different activities. It is now the most visited area in the Island.  There are about 65 sculpture fixed underwater and the area covered is about 800 Square Meter.  There has been a strong debate over the sculpture as it is said that it was dedicated to the slaves that thrown in water during the journey to America from West Africa.  The artist denied it as said it was never in my attention nor it has any connection to Middle passage.
