What to do in Grenada


Discover the Grenada Underwater Sculpture Park

While several Caribbean islands can claim to be a diver's paradise, Grenada is one step ahead of the other islands. In the bay of Molinière awaits you a real underwater museum! Its flagship work, created by British sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor, is entitled "Vicissitudes" and represents 26 men and women holding hands in a circle. The installation pays tribute to the slaves who lost their lives at sea. This striking artwork can be admired just a few meters below the surface, making the site accessible by scuba diving or snorkeling.


Enjoy the beach at Grand Anse

If you are booking a room in a luxury hotel or an all-inclusive resort on the island of Grenada, chances are it is close to Grand Anse. This long creamy-white powdery sand beach is the most popular beach on the island. A large selection of bars and restaurants makes it a very lively spot that attracts locals and tourists alike. This should be put on top of your list of places to see if you visit Grenada.


Swim at the Seven Sisters Falls

At the end of a moderately difficult hike, during which you will gradually descend to the depths of the rainforest, you will reach a charming basin overlooked by two waterfalls. A refreshing swim is a must before going back up! Other beautiful falls, called Honeymoon Falls, are also accessible if you keep walking, but be careful as the area, beyond this first basin, is more challenging. Take your time to observe the lush flora of the area, and be sure to put on good walking shoes!


Smell of nutmeg in the air

Grenada is famous for its many fruit trees, including the nutmeg trees from which the nutmeg and its lovely fragrance is extracted. The island has traded in nutmeg for many moons. The first nutmeg trees were planted by the British in 1843. You can visit the Gouyave Nutmeg Processing Station in Gouyave, a fishing village located on the west coast of the island. For a small fee, you can take a guided tour of the premises and observe the process of sorting, washing and packing nutmeg.


Sail to Carriacou

Located northeast of Grenada, Carriacou Island is accessible by boat or plane, but the seaway will allow you to take full advantage of the clear waters. Considered by many as one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean, Carriacou offers breathtaking views of Grenada and the surrounding islets. You will find countless beaches and paradisiacal lagoons, as well as picturesque fishing villages. Paradise Beach is a must stop - and lives up to its name very well. We bet that once you've settled on one of Carriacou's peaceful beaches, you won't want to leave anymore!
