What to see and do on your Grenada holiday
Discover some of the most beautiful beaches in the world on your Grenada holiday, with the one and a half mile stretch of sugary white sands that is Grand Anse one of the most spectacular and the most popular. Many of the island’s finest hotels are dotted along its coastline, each looking out over the shimmering blue warm waters of the Caribbean that lap its shore. Away from the culinary treats, Grenada is home to some truly stunning natural beauty and inland, it’s incredible tropical rainforest includes the amazing Grand Etang National Park, where visitors can spot wild monkeys and exotic birds as well as take a dip in natural pools and cascading waterfalls.
A holiday to Grenada wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the Belmont Estate, a famous 17th century spice plantation where visitors can learn of the history of the cocoa bean and the production of cinnamon, nutmeg and other spices. Talking of cocoa, Grenada is famous for its chocolate and even plays host to an annual chocolate festival every May. Take a trip to the Grenada Chocolate Company and enjoy the “bean to bar” tour followed by a rather delicious sampling.
Grenada is also home to a fascinating underwater world, and diving is high on the agenda for many a visitor to the island. Discover the Bianca C shipwreck and underwater sculpture park by Jason deCaires Taylor and enjoy the multitude of colourful marine species in its warm waters. There is plenty of opportunities for adventure activities including hiking, river rapid tubing, snorkelling and diving.
