Grenada is known as one of the most beautiful of all Caribbean islands, as a volcanic chain that is still mostly unspoiled by development or tourism. This former British colony is also known for its nutmeg production and a casual way of life, so it’s not your typical strip of identical resorts.
In addition to just relaxing, scuba diving, snorkeling and the usual array of water sports are very popular here. There’s also an organic chocolate factory and some other unusual attractions.
Many of the resorts on Grenada are very pricey and among the most expensive in the Caribbean, but there are some more affordable hotels as well, plus a growing number of specialty eco-tourism resorts.
Where to stay
Somewhat of a newcomer in the Caribbean tourism scene, Grenada only has about 30 hotels and resorts, almost all of which are concentrated in the southwest corner of the country. There are a few relatively cheap hotels, but overall this is one of the more expensive islands to sleep on, with several extremely posh and pricey retreats.
All flight to Grenada land at Maurice Bishop International Airport, which is medium-sized for the Caribbean yet it’s large enough with a long enough runway to land wide-body jets from North America and Europe.
