8 Things To Do In Grenada!
Grenada is a beautiful island with plenty to keep you occupied, it is certainly worth extending your vacation so that you have a few days to explore, before or after your charter.
Here are some highlights:
Belmont Estate – you could spend the whole day here! Belmont is a plantation that dates back to the 17th century. First, have an introduction to some of the produce they grow at the estate, before having a guided “From tree to bar” chocolate making tour (includes samples!) Then enjoy a delicious lunch of local food in the on-site restaurant. Walk off your lunch with a stroll in their gardens.
River Antoine Rum Distillery – no visit to Grenada would be complete without a visit to a rum distillery. This one has the oldest functioning, water propelled distillery in the whole of the Caribbean. Guided tours are available with samples! Go easy….there are still plenty of other things to do in Grenada!
River Sallee Sulpher Springs – get down and dirty in one of 5 sulphur springs. Reputed to be good for healing mosquito bites! There is also a bar on site so you can enjoy a glass of wine whilst you soak. You can also purchase pure cocoa butter.
Waterfalls – Grenada is home to numerous waterfalls dotted throughout the island. Some are easier to get to than others so do your research first and be prepared. At all, you can cool down in the refreshing waters after a hot walk.
Leatherback Turtle Watch – from April through to July you can join an organized leatherback turtle watching trip with SPECTO at Levera beach. Be prepared for a long night, but it is worth it if you see one of these magnificent creatures come ashore to lay.
Cookery Class at True Blue Resort – Every Thursday afternoon join chefs Esther and Omega and learn how to make some real Grenadian food. It is an entertaining as well as informative afternoon as these two are a lot of fun!
Grand Etang National Park – a popular spot for walking and hiking with different levels of walks depending on your fitness levels. Also, the site of the Grand Etang lake which is the crater of an extinct volcano. Maybe you will see the Mona monkeys on your trek.
Hashing – if you are on the island on a Saturday why not join the local Hash House Harriers for the afternoon. This is a large group of diverse “drinkers with a running problem” and they will show the island from a whole new perspective.
