If you want the beaches and the ocean views, but you’re also a passionate foodie who loves to try new flavours, cinnamon-scented Grenada could well be the place for you. Twelve degrees north of the equator, this is a sugar and spice island on which to spend lazy days in a hammock sipping on a nutmeg-infused rum punch. Life here is mellow, unrushed and fragrantly seasoned. 

Less developed than many of the other Caribbean islands, Grenada bewitches with low rise boutique hotels, laid-back living and a lush rainforest interior that opens out onto beautiful white beaches and the indigo waters of the Atlantic and the Caribbean. It’s home to heady hot springs, vividly scented markets, spice plantations, volcanic crater lakes and the striking Seven Sisters Falls.

See the island

Seven Sisters Falls

Take a rewarding hike to the Seven Sisters Falls, set high in Grenada’s Central Mountain Range. The trails take you through beautiful rainforest scenery where you’ll see plentiful bird life, and you may even spot an occasional monkey. The hike is well worth the effort, as you’ll get to enjoy a refreshing swim in the natural pools at the base of the falls.

George and Frederick

Visit historic Fort George and Fort Frederick, where you’ll get a glimpse of Grenada’s colourful past, as well as a panoramic view of St George’s, the island’s capital. Carry on to the National Museum and Parliament House, and end your day at the Westerhall Rum Distillery, with ample time to sample the delicious rum!

Take the hydrofoil to Carriacou

Many people won’t know that two smaller islands (Carriacou and Petit Martinique) near Grenada make up this spicy trio. Take a day trip over to beautiful Carriacou and enjoy some snorkelling off Paradise Beach and lunch in a local restaurant.


You’ll taste organically grown cocoa, strong local rum and a medley of cuisine infused with nutmeg, bay leaves and ginger. And whilst the resort restaurants offer elegant fine dining, the local restaurant scene is low key, mostly made up of informal eateries with fantastic views, the menus augmented by the mouthwatering spices and fresh fruit available at every market.

Grand Anse

If you’re simply looking to while away days on beautiful sun-soaked beaches, the iconic bay at Grand Anse is a huge draw, lying on the western side and perfectly sheltered from high waves and strong winds.

Underwater sculptures

Grenada is also the site of the world’s first underwater sculpture park, where British artist Jason deCaires Taylor has carved a series of haunting cement and steel sculptures that lie at the bottom of the shallow waters of a marine park just off Moliniere Bay.
