Whether you’re after a relaxing beach holiday, outdoor adventure, or foodie-friendly excursion, Grenada ticks all the boxes! This Caribbean island offers an irresistible combo of sandy beaches, warm waters, and rainforest interiors. Go sailing or scuba diving to explore forgotten shipwrecks and colourful coral reefs. This is rounded out with the cultural attractions of capital city St. George’s, which features a bustling little harbour and plenty of stately red-brick architecture. Free from high rises and overdevelopment, Grenada gives you the chance to see the quieter side of the Caribbean.
Many of the island’s most idyllic beaches are tucked away in the southwest corner of Grenada, including sandy stretches like popular Grand Anse as well as a bevy of beach bars and restaurants. Its interior is also well worth a visit with gorgeous sights like the Annandale waterfalls and hiking trails around Mount Camel and Seven Sisters.
Grenada’s often referred to as the ‘Spice Isle’ for its locally grown produce, particularly nutmeg (be sure to try the nutmeg ice cream!). You can even visit a nutmeg factory to learn more about this fragrant little flavour. And for rum fans, why not find out how this popular spirit is made by touring the River Antoine Rum Distillery?
St. George’s is the capital city in Grenada, unmistakable for its brightly coloured buildings and red-brick Georgian architecture lining the harbour. The town’s market features vibrant produce and spices, along with local handicrafts to take home.
Climb up the hill to Fort George and you’ll be rewarded with sweeping views over the coastline. This fort is also a must-visit sight for history buffs, standing tall for three centuries of political turbulence. There’s a full network of secret underground passageways to make it extra thrilling!
