Grenada

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.

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 Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. It’s home to heady hot springs, bustling markets, spice plantations, volcanic crater lakes and the striking Seven Sisters Falls.

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

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 of the island and perfectly sheltered. The lesser known but equally beautiful Morne Rouge, lined with sea grape and almond trees, is a great place to swim and sunbathe. And if you’re after a true slice of isolated Caribbean life, charter a yacht to nearby Carriacou and play shipwreck for the day on Paradise Beach.

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.
