Grenada

Overview

Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique are authentic Caribbean islands that offer visitors romantic, active and natural holidays.

From sandy beaches to spice plantations, coral reefs to rainforests, the islands abound with interesting places to visit and fascinating people to meet. Food is always fresh and there are plenty of eating places to choose from.

Time spent in Grenada is always memorable: whether it’s seeing chocolate go from bean to bar, tasting local rum at a distillery powered by a waterwheel, yoga in a rainforest or admiring the leatherback turtles nesting on a beach, there are plenty of moments to thrill and inspire.

Snorkel over the world’s first Underwater Sculpture Park – named by National Geographic magazine as one of the world’s top 25 wonders – and dive at over 50 sites to discover reefs and wrecks.

On the water is just as exhilarating: Grenada and Carriacou are renowned for their world-class regattas. And did we mention that the islands have more than 40 stunning white sand beaches? We are proud that Grenada’s hotels and resorts are owned and managed by Caribbean nationals, which means that visitors are assured of finding a very warm Grenadian welcome awaits them.

Itinerary

The first thing I do when I arrive is take a few lungfuls of the fresh air: you can smell the spices in the breeze and for me, that says ‘home’. I head back to the parish where my family lives and within no time I’m back into the rhythm of Grenadian life. After a stop at the Spice Market in St George’s – where everything is so fresh – I’ll enjoy a walk along the bustling Carenage waterfront before a seafood lunch. Later, it’s a short drive into the rainforest for a walk to one of the waterfalls and then back to the beach for a swim with the family as the sun sets. All of which gives me plenty of inspiration for my charity work, my writing and making the most of being with my loved ones.
