Grenada

Grenada

Grenada is a very special island. Off the well-trodden Caribbean path, it is unspoilt and not over-developed, yet remarkably refined. The beaches are fabulous and not crowded, the rainforests are havens of nature and make for great trekking, the waterfalls are fun, the stores are good, the roads are smooth (by Caribbean standards!), the restaurants are varied and excellent. The people are warm, gracious and welcoming. Grenada is one of the safest and friendliest islands you can find. Renting a villa here is one of the ultimate way to get the most from this beautiful and memorable island.

With less than 110,000 inhabitants and only 133 square miles of land, the tri island state of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique appears almost invisible on the world map. Despite its size, the island is widely known for its abundance of spices, unspoilt beauty and friendly people.

It has often been questioned though, how an island so tiny, can possess a people with such great character and huge hearts. In 1961, when the Italian cruise liner, the Bianca C caught fire and sank, hundreds of Grenadians rushed to the aid of those onboard, feeding, sheltering and clothing them as needed. Today, a statue known as the ‘Christ of the Deep’ still stands on the Carenage in the town of St. George as an expression of gratitude for the great acts of kindness to the people of Grenada. This was not the first time Grenadians created a buzz because of humility and acts of kindness. In 2005, Lance Corporal Johnson Beharry VC; a Grenadian British Army Soldier was awarded the highest military decoration otherwise known as the Victoria Cross for saving the lives of members of his unit on two occasions. To date, he is the youngest recipient and first man to be awarded the Victoria Cross since 1982.

Sports and nature

Sports and natureScuba diving & Snorkelling
With over 30 reef and wreck sites around the island there are plenty of diving opportunities for both experienced and novices divers. Serious snorkellers may want to explore the spectacular sights of the deeper reefs, and boats run regular trips from Grand Anse to places such as Moliniere Marine Park.

Hiking
Lush mountainous interior rainforests are havens of nature and make for great trekking. Waterfalls provide stunning wild swimming opportunities.

Yacht charters
Private yacht trips can be arranged. You can choose your own itinerary and enjoy a wonderful day on the ocean with stops for snorkelling and swimming.

Turtle Watching
While in Grenada you may be able to see the Leatherback turtle or the smaller Hawksbill turtle. The season begins on 1st April and runs through to the end of June. Tours run nightly, in season.

Whales and dolphins
Go on a sea safari for the chance to see whales and dolphins – the success rate of such trips is astonishingly high.

Sea Kayaking
Appreciate the natural beauty Grenada has to offer and access places that can only be visited by kayak. Every trip is its own adventure including deserted islands, gliding amongst the coral reefs and mangroves, and seeing beautiful flora and fauna.

Cycling in Grenada
Experience Grenada by bike!  Bicycles, including mountain bikes and cruisers can be hired and bicycle tours for all levels and cycling abilities are also available.

Sport fishing
Well-organised sport fishing trips are available on a tailor-made basis to suit the client. Go in search of marlin, tuna and sail-fish.

Cricket
The brand new National Stadium is fast becoming a major cricket venue and it will play host to many major matches each year, including one-day internationals.

Nightlife

NightlifeThere are plenty of option party and relax, or as the locals say 'lime'. From small family owned bars to the larger bars and clubs in St George's where there is live entertainment at most restaurants and hotels.

Restaurants in "the Caribbean kitchen" are known for their spicy dishes, exotic fruits and the most delicious array of sea food. A culinary diversity of French, Spanish, Indian and African cooking, makes for an unforgettable dining experience.

Grenada's music nightlife is not as well known compared to other islands. However, there are a few hot spots where visitors and locals alike, can party till the early hours. Music is varied with a choice selection of Calypso and Reggae which give them that distinctive Caribbean feel.

Culture & history

Culture & historyThe names of our villages, architecture in our towns and dialect spoken throughout Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique bear reference to Grenada’s intriguing history of South American and European settlements. If you’re a traveller who likes to engage in the history of your destination as much as basking in the sun, then come and discover our journey from colonialism to democracy, which reveals a captivating course of events.

Our charming culture is an interesting fusion of old traditions and new generations. In our Carnival, influenced by African slaves and French colonisers, is the prominent presence of the Jab Molassi. Commonly referred to as ‘Jab-Jab’, revellers covered in oil march through the streets to the rhythm of their own drums, alongside the newer addition of revellers covered in colourful paint. This is a unique aspect of our Carnival and showcases the creativity in our culture. Other displays of our culture can be found in performances showcasing our folk tales and folk dances, the work of local artist and craftsman and the sounds of calypso music.

Notable attractions include the stunning Underwater Sculptures where you can combine scuba diving or snorkelling with groundbreaking art. Explore underground tunnels and breathtaking sea views at Fort George. The Belmont Estate is an authentic 17th century plantation showing workings of a fully functional historic plantation.
