Generally, holidaying in the Caribbean means lounging on a white sandy beach soaking up some much-needed sun. However, the beauty of Grenada’s beaches may even inspire you to venture inland to discover other natural attractions on the island. This is a perfect way to escape the heat and enjoy the nature that the island has to offer.
Our favourite focal point of the island is the Grand Étang National Park and Forest, eight miles from the capital in the central mountain range. Grand Étang flora is made up of towering mahogany and giant gommier trees as well as a multitude of ferns. Draped in lush vegetation, this park is perfect for seeing all the natural adornment that belongs to the island, including cocoa trees, nutmeg trees and turmeric plants.
Sandy Island Marine Park is another attraction which is virtually untouched by human hands, and is surrounded by crystal-clear water. Here, you can not only explore the wildlife inland but also discover the coral reefs which are thriving with underwater marine life.
The natural beauty of Grenada is very vast; Hyde Park Garden is situated in St. George and has been home to the Roberts family for more than six generations. More recently, they've transformed their property into a beautiful garden which gives you the perfect opportunity for a peaceful stop on your tour.
