Grand Anse Beach has to be the first stop for anyone heading to Grenada. It’s by far and away the jewel in the island’s crown, with its sugar-white sand, crystal-clear waters and views of the capital St George’s.
For other beach holidays in Grenada, Tyrell Bay Beach on Carriacou, an island just north of Grenada itself, is a beautiful and secluded horseshoe beach boasting pristine white sand and fantastic snorkelling and diving opportunities.
Levera Beach is another stunning spot to chill on the sand, dip your toes in the ocean and enjoy views of nearby Sandy Island, Green Island and Sugar Loaf Island. And as if that’s not enough, it also sits within Levera National Park, which houses a vast mangrove swamp and a lagoon rich with wildlife.
Grenada also boasts more than 30 diving and snorkelling sites to choose from, not least the Molinere Underwater Sculpture Park – the first of its kind in the world – off the island’s west coast in Dragon Bay.
But Grenada holidays aren’t just about beaches and water sports. Concord Falls and Annandale Falls, both towards the west of the island, are picture-perfect spots to explore and even take a dip against a spectacular backdrop.
For your fill of history and culture, the capital St George’s offers a plethora of activities. Head to Fort George for fantastic views across the whole area, before popping along to the Grenada National Museum for a fascinating insight into the country’s past. Next door, the House of Chocolate is a dream for anyone with a sweet-tooth and perfect for family holidays in Grenada.
On the north-east coast, the River Antoine Rum Distillery is a must when in the Caribbean and it’s only a couple of streets away from Belmont Estate, a cocoa plantation featuring a museum and cafe.
