Why Grenada?

"Why not?"  is what you should be asking yourself!   

 

Grenada is one of the more unspoiled islands in the Caribbean with genuinely friendly people.    Without being one big tourist trap, yet offering enough to fulfill the savvy traveler,  Grenada gives everything from relaxing on beaches to hiking through a rain forest.  Diving on a wreck to touring the rum factories or learning about the spices and our delicious chocolate. 

 

Grenada's eclectic  charm is sure to encourage you to slow down, enjoy life and most visitors always leave, wanting to return.

 

We hope the information below will be of help.

Beaches

Some of our many beaches you may want to visit:

 

Grand Anse Beach is of course the most famous and Eco Dive offers Kayak, Hobi-cat and Paddle Board Rental.  A beach vendor offer "pay E.C. $10 for the day" and get a beach chair.

Morne Rouge Beach - try La Plywood Beach Bar for lunch and drinks.   Also a beach vendor that has chairs for rent.

Magazine Beach - My personal favourite because of the magnificent views and gorgeous colour.   Aquarium Restaurant is right there to get cocktails and food.  Sunday BBQ's and live band are well known.

Bathway Beach - Taking a day trip to the North of the island?  Why not stop at Bathway for a dip on the way.

Levera Beach - Well known for the ongoing protection of the Leatherback Turtles during laying and hatching season.   See our  Turtle watching section.

General Exploration

Conservation Kayaks - Explore some of Grenada's Coastal Shore on a Kayak!      Visit Conservation Kayaks for more info.

Sun Hunters - Enjoy off roading through places you would never see in a normal car?

​Turtle Watching - Between April and July the leather back turtles come to lay their eggs.    An amazing experience!    Specto is the company that you need to organise the actual turtle tour with.   Although their website says you can pay online this facility is not ready yet.   Just email them and they will let you know which days are available.  You can pay upon arrival at Bathway (where you need to stop first to pay and get you permits for the beach).   If you don't think you want to drive yourself, take a taxi/tour bus.   The tour starts at 7:30 p.m. and be aware you may not get back home until 12 midnight.

Zip lining - High in the rain forest by Seven Sisters Falls.   Grenada High Wire.

Spices & Cocoa

Nutmeg and Cocoa is one of our main exports.   Here are some suggestions of places to see if you would  like to learn more about how it is processed.

Belmont Estate:  Take a tour and learn how the cocoa is processed.  Taste the chocolate samples and hot cocoa.

Nutmeg:  There are two processing plants, one in Goyauve and one in Grenville

Rum Factories.  

River Antoine is one of the oldest factories and still produces the rum with the old water wheel.   Don't drink too much of this though!

Clarkes Court Rum have a wide variety of rums and flavours.

Westerhall Rum offer some tasty aged rums as well as their standard rums.

Rainforest & Waterfalls

Concord and Annandale Waterfall are the easiest waterfalls to get to if you have someone in your group that cannot or does not like to go long distances.  

If you enjoy a mildly challenging hike try St. Margaret Falls, one of the Seven Sister Falls.    

Mount Carmel is and easy hike up and down the prettiest fall.  You may get asked if you want a guide to take you down but this is not necessary. Just kindly decline.

​Rainforest

Take a drive up to Grand Etang.    View it from above and hopefully see the Mona Monkeys.    Then drive down and park right by the lake.

There are a few trails in this area that you can explore. 

Mount Qua Qua is a great hike.

 

Flora & Fauna

You will find all of Grenada's Tropical flora all over the island, however if you are an enthusiast, the gardens below may be what you are looking for.

 

The Tower offer garden tours and a little history on the house.

Anne Campbell owns Smithy's Garden and offers garden tours.

Sunny Side Garden   Read about Jean Renwick's love for Gardening.

Bird watching: Anthony Jeremiah can take you - you may even get to see the endangered Grenada Dove.

First Impressions - Whale & Dolphin watching.

Forts and History

With much history through, British, French and Spanish invasions there is quite a bit of old building heritage.

If in town you might want to pop in the museum

Fort Fredrick has amazing views of the southern point of the island and St. George's, great breeze and history as well!

Fort George overlooks the coast, The Carenage and Lagoon.

Caribs Leap/Leapers Hill is  where the Caribs jumped of the edge of of a cliff at the north of the island rather than be taken by the French.

More Facts and Dates on Grenada's History.

Fedons Camp was the base of a French Revolutionary Julien Fedon.      A little harder to get to but if you are interested in a more serious hike with some history thrown in try  Caribbean Horizons

Carriacou & Tobago Cays

Grenada is actually a Tri Island State which consists of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique.    

 

You can take the Osprey Ferry to Carriacou which takes about 1 1/2 to 2 hours but is a scenic trip in the day.  Most days are fair weather but of course cater for the fact that there is a small stretch of open water that may be a bit bumpy.   If boat rides are not for you, SVG Air offer daily flights - the flight itself is only 30 mins long.

Carriacou is a quiet island but a great place to slow down.  Great  scuba diving and a visit to Sandy Island to snorkel or White Island is also worth the trip.

Also just, North of these lies the Marine Park "Tobago Cays"    Take a day trip and swim with the turtles.

Day trip scan be organised from Grenada.   See our Organised Tours section. If going from Carriacou:
