So you're going to Grenada?
Grenada is the Spice Island of the Caribbean, famous for it’s rich history in nutmeg and cacao. A Tri-island State alongside the tranquil islands Carriacou and Petit Martinique, Grenada has largely escaped the tourism boom, providing you with an authentic Caribbean experience. Visit Grand Anse beach and expect to relax on the long stretch of pristine white sand. Spend a day snorkelling or scuba diving coral reefs and local wrecks, or exploring the green lush interior and waterfalls of the island.
During our Grenada travels, we explored as much of the island as we could in a week. We started with the isolated and picturesque Levera beach in the north, before moving down to the colourful and bustling capital, St George’s in the south. Don’t miss a visit to Grand Etang National Park, with it’s many waterfalls and hiking trails – the Seven Sisters Waterfalls was a personal favourite of ours! Check out our Grenada travel guide to find out the best things to do.
The most popular time to visit Grenada is November through to April as the days are dry and full of sun. If you’re looking for one of the best parties in the region, Carriacou hosts a carnival at the end of February and start of March, where bright costumes and dancing is the norm. If you still want some sun but crowds aren’t your thing, prices are typically lower during the shoulder month of May.
