What to do in Grenada

October 27, 2017 | By |

Calling all nature lovers, adventurers, romantics, foodies, festivalgoers, and families! Whatever your heart desires, you’ll find it in Pure Grenada, the Spice of the Caribbean, a chain of fiery islands including Grenada, Carriacou, and Petit Martinique.

Pure Nature

Enjoy a leisurely stroll on a scenic path to the beautiful Annadale Waterfalls or venture through the rainforest to a hidden gem known as the Seven Sisters Falls. Grand Etang National Park offers hiking trails for all levels that lead to breathtaking views. The forest reserve also features lush tropical flowers, a large variety of native bird species and majestic mahogany and gommier trees.

Pure Adventure

Grenada has exciting activities for all, including Sun Hunters’ dune buggy and jeep tours that will take you off the beaten path through tropical forests, beaches, verdant hills, and more. A must for thrill-seekers, the high wire eco-adventure at the Seven Sisters Falls will send you soaring with ziplining and obstacle courses through the rainforest canopy.

Pure Festival

In August, the streets are filled with vibrant crowds, island music, and an explosion of colour during Grenada’s biggest festival, Spicemas, which includes the spectacular lights of Monday Night Mas, the unique tradition that is Jab Jab and the fancy costumes of Pretty Mas. Join in the festivities for an experience unlike any other, or indulge your sweet tooth at the Grenada Chocolate Festival in late spring. In April, say thanks at the Carriacou Maroon and String band Music Festival, a traditional Caribbean celebration offering thanks for the harvest.

Pure Romance

The beautiful coral reefs and clear waters of Carriacou and Petit Martinique make snorkelling with your significant other an unforgettable date. For something more relaxing with an indulgent twist, treat yourselves to an afternoon of pampering with a chocolate treatment at one of the island’s luxury spas. Romance is never-ending in this couples’ hideaway.

Pure Bliss

Dive into the calm turquoise waters of Grand Anse, Magazine and Bathway, a few of Grenada’s best beaches where you can spend hours walking on the soft white sand. Don’t miss Claboney Hot Springs, a favourite for its soothing therapeutic waters that make the hike there worth your while. Experience a new take on diving at the Molinere Underwater Sculpture Park, located off Grenada’s west coast, and filled with art installations shaped out of concrete and rebar.

Pure Waves

January and February call for setting sail! It kicks off with the Spice Island Billfish Tournament, a premier sports event and three-day fishing competition. End of January brings the Grenada Sailing Week, luring sailors from all over to Grenada for sailing races and parties. February’s Grenada Sailing Festival Workboat Regatta, days of races using working fishing boats.
