Experience the beauty of Grenada in one of our vacation rentals
THINGS TO DO IN GRENADA
Welcome to GrenadaVacation.com!
- Underwater Sculpture Park: A artistic cluster of submerged sculptures in Moliniere Bay just north of St. George’s. British artist Jason deCaires Taylor crafted the initial figures, with later contributions from Grenada’s Troy Lewis and Rene Froehlich.
- Explore Fort Frederick: When the French troops constructed Fort Fredrick in the year 1779, Fort Fredrick was designed for war and defense purposes. Today, over 200 years later, Fort Fredrick still stands as one of the most historic sites and a symbol of Grenada history. Visitors are afforded a panoramic view of Grenada’s southwestern coastline. Fort Frederick is open 6 days of the week except for Sunday.
- River Antoine Rum Distillery: A visit to the River Antoine Rum Distillery is a trip back in time to the way rum was produced some 200 years ago throughout the Caribbean. The oldest water-powered rum factory in the Caribbean may look like ruins, but it’s still making fine libations inside its ancient gray walls. Take a guided tour around the grounds to see the distillation vats, boilers, and the the18th-century waterwheel that still powers the sugarcane-crushing machinery.
- Spicemas: To Grenadians Spicemas is an expression in all their glory, culminating during the second Monday and Tuesday in August. Filled with pageantry and expression linked to African, British, French, and Caribbean heritage, Carnival is colorful, humorous, and full of surprises. Calypsonians, steel pan bands, beauty contestants, fancy mas bands, and others perform and parade to compete for Carnival honors. Grenadians gather to watch, participate and enjoy.
- Cruise around the Island: Grenada is at the southern end of the great yachting route across the Caribbean, and one of the last places in the West Indies where you can still find traditional wooden sailing craft. There are a lot of different ways for visitors to get out on the water, and a circumnavigation of the island by motorboat or catamaran is a great way to compare the contrasting scenery and vibes of the coasts. The family-oriented trips include snorkeling a coral reef and lunch on a small, deserted island with views across the water to mountainous Grenada.
- Hike the Seven Sisters Waterfalls: The Seven Sisters Waterfalls offers a glimpse of Grenada rain forest wilderness in the highlands in and around Grand Etang Forest Reserve. The first section meanders through an ancient volcanic crater filled with small farms where nutmeg, cinnamon, sugarcane, papayas, and mangoes are cultivated. The second stage leads down a steep and muddy incline to the lowest of the Seven Sisters Falls, where you can swim and sun. The daring can jump from the top of the highest cascade into a deep pool. The trail to the falls is not well marked; rather than strike out on your own, sign up for a guided hike.
- Grand Anse Beach: The silky stretch of sheltered white sand and turquoise water where vacationers and locals can go swimming, kayaking, diving, snorkeling, or just relax with a book or just enjoy the view of St. Georges, this world-famous beach spans two miles/three kilometers along the southwest coastline. Nearby water sport specialists, restaurants, hotels, and a Vendors Market which offers a variety of services and local products.
