Hotels in Grenada
At a glance, holidays to Grenada are everything a Caribbean getaway should be, all white beaches and sandy coves, coral reefs and waterfalls. But this Spice Island has more up its sleeve, with shipwrecks, French fortresses and volcanic craters spicing up the island scene. It may be small, but there are acres of beach on the Grand Anse and Tamarind Bay for some downtime on the sand on holidays in Grenada, and the pace of life here moves at a snail's pace.
If you get itchy feet on holidays to Grenada, you can explore the magnificent rainforest of the Grand Etang, or wander through streets of sun-baked clapboard houses in the historic capital Georgetown. But the best way to savour local life on holidays in Grenada is to spend an afternoon watching a cricket match on the village green, or wander through Grand Anse's daily market, with stalls heaving with a range of delicacies. The jams and syrups flavoured with nutmeg offer a true taste of the Isle of Spice, and the barbecued corn cobs from street vendors make for good grazing.
When the sun sets, holidays in Grenada still stay chilled, with the soft sounds of a steel band the soundtrack to a night under the stars. Move to a funkier beat the next day on the 'doof doof bus', a tour bus that rides around Georgetown blasting reggae from the stereo.
