1| The Town of St. George
A must-see, the town of Saint George has been described as walking through what feels like walking through an oil painting. Most famously displayed are rows of brightly colored painted houses. St. George is the city's capital and is proud to have earned the unofficial title of the most beautiful harbor in the Caribbean.
2| Grand Anse Beach
Known as the "granddaddy" of the 45 beaches here, Grand Anse is a two-mile stretch of pristine white sand. The beach is one of the favorites, complete with nice hotels and restaurants. The only downfall is the local vendors. While we love to support our local artists and entrepreneurs, they can be aggressive with their sales pitches. Simply say no, "thank you." if you're not interested in their product, they will move on.
3| Grand Etang National Park
What is there to do when you get tired of lounging on the beach (because that does happen)? Stretch your legs at the national park and take in natural beauty and wonder. On your hike, you'll find exotic wildlife like mona monkeys, armadillos, and tropical mockingbirds. One tourist reported, "We've seen a lot of beautiful beaches in the Caribbean and South Pacific but hiking down a rainforest filled with the aroma of fresh spices was absolutely incredible."
4| River Antonie Rum Distillery
When you are ready to experience more of what the island has to offer, make your way to River Antoine Rum Distillery. They have been churning rum bottles since 1785. "They make a rum so strong that it cannot be taken home on an airplane," a visitor commented.
5| Diving in Grenada
With over 30 diving sites, visitors can view coral reefs, colorful sea life, and a famous shipwreck site. The Bianca C was a cruise liner that sank in 1961 and has earned the name "Titanic of the Caribbean." Avid divers highly recommended visiting the Underwater Sculpture Park, where the experienced diver can visit the "The Ring of Children."
