Start your holiday to Grenada:
Grenada is an island country (132sq.miles) in the West Indies, and made up the islands of Carriacou and Petit Martinique and smaller islets…perfect for a spot of island hopping! It is known as Spice Island, because a range of spices are grown here, such as nutmeg, mace, cinnamon and ginger.
There is a wide choice of accommodation, from luxury all-inclusive hotels to lavish villas and more affordable self-catering apartments. With white sand beaches and stunning natural scenery, it’s the ideal place to get away and relax or take part in the wealth of outdoor activities. Experience authentic life on this Caribbean island by immersing yourself in Grenada’s vibrant and colourful culture, and discovering its fascinating history. A warm Grenadian welcome is assured!
Our top 5 reasons to visit Grenada:
1. Sensational beaches
There are 40 white sand beaches …many quiet and secluded. Grande Anse beach has 2 miles of sand and shallow falls, and bars and restaurants alongside. La Sagesse beach is quieter, with greyish/white sands and watersports. Sheltered Morne Rouge beach is quiet with shallow falls. On Carriacou Island, scenic Anse La Roche beach is quiet with no facilities.
2. Stunning, diverse natural scenery
Waterfalls, rivers, rain forest, mangrove swamps, lakes & hills. Annandale Falls has cascades with a 30 ft drop…swim in the pool below!
The Grenada dove is unique to the island. Look for the Mona monkey, originally transported to Grenada on slave ships from Africa.
3. Range of watersports and outdoor activities
Swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving, sailing, yachting, kayaking, SUP and sport fishing are all popular. The Molinere Underwater Sculpture Park, opened in 2006, was the first underwater sculpture park in the world. Accessed by divers and snorkelers, it has over 65 ecological contemporary art sculptures (mainly human forms) designed to simulate an artificial reef.
Try river tubing down the Balthazar River, from the mountains and through the rainforest. Some of the kayaks for rental are transparent, so you can see the abundant sea life and coral through them! Bird watching and hiking is popular in Levera National Park.
