What to do in Grenada

What to do in Grenada

Get Out and About On The Island

Discover a large variety of activities, both on land and in the water. Hike along incredible trails, visit lovely national parks and tropical gardens, or snorkel in warm, clear waters. Indulge your body and spirit on this wonderful island and come out feeling fresh and rejuvenated.

Tall Trees and Waterfalls

Grenada is known for its stunning waterfalls and great hiking. Alongside a knowledgeable guide, trek through the rainforest to the first of the Seven Sisters Waterfalls and take a dip in its cool, refreshing waters. Race atop the forest canopy or zipline through the trees at Grenada High Wire.

Colourful Parks and Gardens

Known as a nature lover’s paradise, Grenada is home to several national parks and reserves. Grand Etang National Park and Forest Reserve features lush tropical flowers, a large variety of native bird species and majestic mahogany and gommier trees. For a different type of garden adventure, visit a herb and spice garden and learn all about Grenada’s unique flavours.

Snorkeling in Grenada

Underwater Beauty

Experience a new take on diving at the Molinere Underwater Sculpture Park, filled with over 100 underwater sculptures shaped out of old concrete and rebar. If you’d prefer something close to the water’s surface, check out Grenada’s water sports options and snorkelling to see beautiful coral reefs and vibrant marine life.

Rejuvenation, Island-Style

Soothe yourself—body and soul—at the island’s sulphur springs. Embark on a short hike through a beautiful forest, then soak in the natural hot springs and let your worries float away. Or, try out a beach yoga class, where you’ll take in stunning ocean views and practice with some of the island’s best certified yoga instructors.

Be Pampered in Paradise

Known for its luxurious spas and high-end retreats, Grenada is the perfect place to pamper yourself from head to toe with relaxing massages and body treatments. Then, soak up the sun on one of the island’s beautiful beaches. Morne Rouge Beach and Magazine Beach are popular choices, with fine white sand and clear, warm water.
