Waterfall expeditions, rainforest hikes and lazy days lounging on idyllic white sand beaches – however you prefer to unwind, there’s so much that takes our fancy on Grenada. We love taking time to a wander the streets of the colourful capital, St Georges, stopping occasionally to sample a local rum.

See some wrecks
Leave the beach behind and take a wooden schooner to stunning Carriacou, then take a dive to Bianca C, the largest wreck in the region. It's a must in the wreck-diving capital of the Caribbean, where there are 22 to discover.
If wrecks aren't your thing, set sail on a sunset cruise. Or discover the great wild swimming and waterfall bathing in Grenada. For an extra twist, the island’s LaSource resort offers a unique scuba-yoga and meditation course.
Have a rum old time
Take a break from the beach to visit the Caribbean's oldest rum distillery, where it’s so strong they recommend you sit down to drink it. Follow it with a trip to one of Grenada's secret beach shacks. Or time your holiday to coincide with one of Grenada's festivals.
Take a hike
Explore the lush rainforests en route to one of Grenada’s stunning waterfalls. For a gentle stroll, head to Annadelle Falls. Or if it’s a challenge you’re after, try Concord Falls.
Try a memorable night-time trip for all the family and watch turtles climbing up the beach to lay their eggs. Organised conservational tours to see this breathtaking sight take place between March and July.
