When you check into luxury Grenada hotels, expand your horizons by going beyond to beach for all the attractions the island has to offer.
If you look out from any Grenada hotels window, you may think there is nothing else to this beautiful island than that expanse of sea and sand. But there is more to this Caribbean paradise than meets the eye. Spend a day out of the beach or nights dancing your heart out to beat of island drums.
Leave the beach behind and make your way from your hotel to Grand Etang National Park. Do not forget to bring your swimsuits! One of the main attractions is the Seven Sister Falls. Walk through the rainforest until you hear the rush of the falls and dive right in! The area is safe and perfect for swimming. Hike your way to Concord Falls near St. John to experience the thundering 65-foot waterfall and a cool mid-afternoon swim.
To complete the waterfall experience, the Royal Mount Carmel Falls are a double set of falls that are the highlight of a guided tour through the forest. This waterfall features a unique smooth pool that you can slip into after a short hike through the forest. During your stay in Grenada, hotels should also be able to point you in the right direction no matter what type of experience you are looking for.
The Bay Gardens boast over 3000 different species of flora and provide great photo opportunities. For a small fee you can happily scamper about, photograph your favourite flowers and enjoy the diversity of the Caribbean. You can also choose to tour the Co-Operative Nutmeg Associate for a peek into the spice that fuels the island’s export economy, plus you can buy a few spices to take home.
If travelling with children or teenagers, luxury Grenada hotels often have different activities to keep them busy but who wants to be cooped up all day when this beautiful island is calling out for you to explore? Why not take the family off the beaten path and visit the Grenada Chocolate Company for an inside look at one of the best chocolatiers in the world? Although remote and a long ride from town, the trip will be worth its weight (in chocolate). Another interesting attraction worth looking into is the River Antoine Rum Distillery for a day tour. Yes, you can buy a bottle and there are free samplings of the rum varieties. Pirate jokes are optional.
There is also no shortage of museums. Cricket lovers should take the time to visit the West Indies Cricket Heritage Center, a lesser-known museum that displays cricket memorabilia, uniforms, caps, equipment and jackets. Explore how life was by visiting the National Museum and visit the historic Carenage Harbor for dining, shopping and island crafts.
Take the family to Fort George for a look at olden times and a chance to see some of the island’s most beautiful panoramic bay views. After take a stroll through the bay and dine in the many restaurants around the area.
There is more to this fabulous destination than the beautiful beaches. Day tours are available for all of the attractions for convenient prices. Explore the island and discover its hidden sights, hidden secrets and colorful history.
