Spice of the Caribbean
First things first: Grenada’s beaches. They’re postcard-perfect – all powdery sands and turquoise waters. One of the best is Grand Anse Beach, whose sands skirt the coastline for two kilometres. Its next-door neighbour is Morne Rouge, a gorgeous sandy bay offering up calm waters and a peaceful atmosphere. There are plenty more to be discovered, too – just hit the road (or waters) and skirt the coastline in search of your favourite.
Things get even more fascinating under the water, with an array of marine life and the world’s first underwater sculpture park. Don a mask and flippers and you can float around the eerie collection of underwater statues, which showcase Grenada’s culture and people.
Head inland and adventure is on the cards. Have your photo taken at Seven Sisters Waterfalls or trek the lush landscapes of Grand Etang National Park. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore Grenada’s capital, St. George, one day. The city’s colourful houses cascade down hillsides that surround a vibrant harbour. Look out for shops selling punchy spices – the island is famous for growing everything from ginger and cinnamon, to nutmeg and cloves.
The Grenadians are known to be some of the friendliest people in the Caribbean, always greeting people with a smile. They know how to throw a party, too – you might want to time your visit with one of the island’s festivals, like the annual sailing festival or the Carriacou Carnival.
