Here are 9 brilliant things to do while in the exotic and wonderful Spice Isle...View full article
For heavenly sands to sink your toes into, Grenada delivers it in droves. Grand Anse’s immaculate sands and turquoise water have to be on the check list as do Black Bay’s stretch of silky black volcanic sands. Pink Gin Beach has an off-the-beaten track feel and a stunning vista of St George’s that feels just like paradise.
Mingle with the friendly locals in the pretty town of St. George’s, which has arguably one of the best seafronts in the Caribbean. There are bustling spice markets here, as well as a historic fort, colourful homes, ancient stone buildings and the Carenage natural harbour. With our Grenada holiday packages, you can enjoy a free tour of Fort George, a visit to a spice market and breathtaking views from the harbour. Another of the island’s larger towns is Victoria - here you can hike the cliffs for amazing views of the sea...just beware of falling rocks!
Hire a boat and plan an excursion to the neighbouring island of Carriacou, where you’ll find West Indian life in its purest form. There are green hills just begging to be hiked and pristine hidden beaches waiting to be discovered. Petit Martinique, Grenada’s second little sister, makes a fantastic day trip as well. Here you’ll find an even slower pace and breathtaking, untouched scenery. There’s a small community of locals - this tiny island has less than a thousand permanent residents - but they exude the same hospitality and charm you’ll find on the more developed islands.
Grenada overflows with cultural sights and the capital of St George’s is a great starting point. Visit the 18th Century Fort George and learn about the island’s history while admiring its stunning hilltop views from 175ft above the harbour. The Grenada National Museum, Parliament House, the Roman Catholic Cathedral and a historic market square are all worth exploring too.
Grenada has lots of natural beauty, just waiting to be explored. The island’s interior is covered with dense rainforest and lush tropical jungle. A most incredible place to visit is the Grand Etang National Park. Spend a day trekking through the park, which is home to wild monkeys and exotic tropical birds. Concord Falls is a gorgeous natural landmark you also won’t want to miss whilst on holiday in Grenada.Back to top
