Holidaying with Jane McDonald: The Caribbean – Grenada Blog

The Caribbean’s very own spice island remains a quieter yet equivalently sun-soaked destination.  

“There’s no high-rise development here, and much of the island is home to nutmeg, ginger and pepper plantations, so there’s always a moreish hint of spice in the air,” shares Ellie, our Marketing Executive who travelled across the islands with Jane. 

Naturally, given its history with spices, Jane visited both the island’s renowned fish market and spice markets to shop for ingredients with chef Berlinda, before heading to The Tower Estate to create a delicious, traditional Grenadian lunch.

Jane then visited the esteemed Belmont Estate, a huge organic cocoa plantation where she saw cocoa being processed and tried her hand at chocolate-making. (It’s a hard job, but someone has to do it!) This 17th century estate is a must-visit during your Grenada holiday, with its vast gardens, heritage museum, petting farm, and craft cooperative. 

Jane ventured further into Grenada’s hinterland, with a jeep ride to Grand Etang National Park. Jane and team then took the 30-minute hike to the cooling waters of Seven Sisters Waterfalls.

If you’d prefer to explore the azure waters surrounding Grenada then why not dive to the Grenada Underwater Sculpture Park, where you’ll find a stunning collection of figures five metres deep? Off-camera, Jane took a diving refresher course beforehand at the four-star Coyaba Beach Resort, another favourite of Sovereign Luxury Travel guests. 

“Embracing Grenadian culture, we joined Jane to watch the Bélé drummers and dancers at Silversands,” tells Ellie. “Bélé is a folk dance that we were told may be one of the oldest Creole dances and is influenced by African fertility rituals - it was hypnotic to watch.”

Where To Stay

Located right by the white sands of the Grand Anse Beach, Silversands is a luxurious haven that’s popular among celebrities, so it was an obvious accommodation choice for Jane.

This five-star resort has such a great culinary reputation that many non-guests choose to visit for their evening meals and drinks.

What’s more, the swimming pool that Jane swam in is boastfully the longest swimming pool in the Caribbean!

When the cameras weren’t rolling, Jane also enjoyed a unique Quartz massage at the totally tranquil Silversands Spa.

Jane stayed in the Silversands Ocean View Junior Suite on the top floor, which boasted an open plan living and sleeping space with floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as a spacious balcony with an oversized daybed, sun loungers and dining table.
