“If you’re looking for a beach that is a little more active than the relaxing and peaceful Grand Anse Beach, then head just a little south to BBC Beach. You still get the same white sands and bright blue waters, but you’ll also be able to enjoy the ocean water park with inflatable attractions, such as slides and obstacle courses. There are also a few bars where the adults can get some refreshments.
The Caribbean is known for rum. Grenada is known for spices. Put two and two together and you are going to find some of the best rum you can. At Clarke’s Court Rum, you can take a tour of the distillery, learn about the history of the company and the rum making process, and even get to taste a couple of varieties and learn how to make your own rum drinks!”
Located in the modern day capital of St. George, Fort George dates back to colonial times. Built by the French in 1706 as Fort Royal, conquered and renamed Fort George by the British in 1763, and now used by the Royal Grenada Police, Fort George has had a colorful history. You can climb up to the top of the Fort and be dazzled with the unique view of St. George and the breathtaking view of the harbor
Just north of Saint George’s is the National Bird Wildlife Habitat. Here, you can hope to catch a glimpse of the Grenada dove, the national bird of Grenada. At the very least, you’ll be able to enjoy a hike through the hills and forests of Grenada.
If you want a guaranteed way to see some of Grenada’s terrestrial wildlife, you can head to the Spice Island Wildlife Sanctuary and Petting Zoo on the eastern side of the island. Here, you’ll be able to see monkeys, parrots, iguanas, and whatever other local critter is in need of some rehabilitation. You might even get to feed one or two of the animals!
Located in the south-central region of the island, in Epping Forest, is the Palm Tree Botanical Gardens. You can get lost among the natural tropical flora of the island. With just about two acres of well-manicured gardens and pathways for you to explore, your senses will run wild as you learn the true understanding of why Grenada is called the “Isle of Spice.”
If you’re looking for something more on the wilder side of the Caribbean, then head to the Grand Etang National Park. You can go hiking through a true, tropical rainforest, head up the mountains for one-of-a-kind panoramas, or even try your luck at some wildlife spotting, such as a Moana monkey or even a mongoose. While you’re hiking through the forest, be sure to head to the Seven Sisters Falls. You can sit by the edge of the water and enjoy the energy of the falls or even go for a swim.

When you fly to Grenada, you will land at the Maurice Bishop International Airport on the main island, Grenada. However, given Grenada’s relatively small size and distance from many major cities or islands, chances are you will be catching a connecting flight from another island on Liat Airlines.
However, if you’re lucky enough to catch a direct flight from North America, your best options will be either American Airlines or Delta Airlines. If you’re traveling from Europe, your best option will be British Airways or Virgin Atlantic. You can also catch a local flight to Carriacou, the second largest island of Grenada.
There are plenty of cruise options available to those who are looking to travel a more leisurely way. Your best options for getting to Grenada via a cruise ship would be joining a Royal Caribbean itinerary or a Norwegian Cruise Line itinerary.
