Sleepy Grenada is a treasure of the West Indies. Nicknamed the Spice Island, Grenada is known for exporting nutmeg and cinnamon and notes of these spices fill the air. During your stay you'll happen upon historic forts, cascading waterfalls, gardens, and a kaleidoscope of beaches with sands ranging from powdery white and pink to striking volcanic black. The 18th-century capital city of St. George’s is regarded as one of the prettiest harbor towns in the West Indies. Stroll the hilly streets and admire the colorful, Georgian colonial architecture. The island’s most famous beach is Grand Anse Beach, a two-mile-long stretch of sugary sand near St. George’s. If you’re looking for a more secluded beach, head to Levera in the northeast.
Set out on a three-hour jungle trek through scenic rainforest. The hike ends at Seven Sisters Falls, tumbling cascades that plunge into natural swimming holes.
The Balthazar River, nicknamed the "great river" by locals, is a great day adventure for families. Local outfitters offer tours on tubes over the chilly currents. Drink a hard-earned rum punch at the end of the course.
Neighboring island Carriacou is a two-hour ferry ride away. On its shores, admire homemade boats and schooners. The friendly islanders are self-sufficient to this day, growing their own produce and raising their own livestock.
Huge 5- to 7-foot leatherback turtles are native to Grenada. This endangered species is protected by local conservation efforts and can be spotted wandering ashore to dig a hole and bury their eggs.
Grenada is a good bet to visit any time of the year. Rain is heaviest from May through November, which is also generally the stormy season. However, the rain helps the island maintain its lush beauty, and crowds are much more sparse during this time. Most of the time, though, the sky is sunny, the beaches beckon, and temperatures hover reliably in the 80s.
