Grenada tourism: undiscovered gem of the Caribbean

Vacationing in Grenada makes you feel like you have an island all to yourself. Leave mass tourism behind and get pampered in a hotel or all-inclusive resort surrounded by unspoiled nature.

Family fun

Three miles of white sand under the Caribbean sun make Grand Anse Beach the kind of holiday destination families dream of. Book an all-inclusive resort right on the calm, child-friendly turquoise water, and enjoy activities like scuba diving, parasailing, waterskiing and windsurfing right outside your door.

For an afternoon of exploration inland, head to the lush rainforests of Grand Etang National Park. Make spotting a mona monkey or an Antillean-crested hummingbird a fun game for your kids.

The Caribbean for couples

The romance of tropical gardens and spectacular cascades make the Annandale Falls a must-see. Stroll through a forest of fruit trees and flowering plants before taking an invigorating dip beneath the refreshing waters.

An unforgettable dinner date is a must for any couple on vacation, and The Aquarium Restaurant on Grenada’s southern coast is the best restaurant on the island. They serve up Caribbean cuisine to the sounds of the top musical acts in the country.

Island life with friends

One of the most festive events in Grenada is a weekly street party in Gouyave called Fish Friday. You and your friends can sing, dance and eat fresh seafood with the locals until the wee hours.

Another attraction that your group shouldn’t miss is held in a unique venue to say the least! Internationally acclaimed eco-sculptor James DeCaires Taylor’s haunting works are immersed some eight metres beneath the sea in his Underwater Sculpture Village.

Currency

The East Caribbean dollar (EC$ or XCD) is the currency used locally. Most shops and restaurants will accept US dollars, but you’ll get a better exchange rate by changing to XCD at a bank and using local currency.

Official language

Grenada’s official language is English, which is spoken widely. However, for most Grenadian people, an English-based Creole is the dominant tongue. French Patois survives among the oldest generations in small, scattered areas.
