Relax and unwind on this paradise island

Sleepy Grenada, affectionately known as 'Spice Island', offers a tranquil, off-the-beaten-track alternative to the region’s bigger islands. It's famous for spice plantations, beautiful mountains, untouched rainforest and secluded beaches with plenty of opportunities for exploration or relaxation. Follow hiking trails to discover pretty waterfalls, go whale watching, explore historic forts and go diving to discover the world's first underwater sculpture park and one of the largest shipwrecks in the Caribbean.

  • Grenada offers untouched beauty and secluded beaches, compared to some of the more popular Caribbean islands
  • Head to St George's and the Saturday market for local produce and, of course, spices
  • Of Grenada’s 45 beaches Grand Anse is the most celebrated and with a two-mile sweeping stretch of powder-soft sand that’s lapped by inviting Caribbean waters it isn’t hard to see why
  • A trip to Grenada wouldn't be complete without a visit to one of the spice plantations, rum distillieries or a ‘tree to bar tour’ to learn about the island's award-winning chocolate
  • Hiking trails run through the tropical rainforest, along the shores of Great Etang Lake and to refreshing waterfalls and natural pools.

I loved the fact that this island has more to offer than beaches. While I can see why Grande Anse Beach is regularly voted one of the best in the world, it is how lush and fresh the island looks which makes it so special.
