Grenada, a beautiful island nation located in Central America. It is located on the Caribbean Sea and is one of the most exotic destinations, both for tourists from the area and those from other parts of the world. It consists of many smaller islands. The climate is very pleasant, but when it rains, it becomes unbearable to breathe.
Those who are visiting this wonderful country for the first time probably want to make a tour plan, so as not to accidentally omit some of the tourist attractions worth noting. Well, let’s go in order.
1. St. George’s
Of course, the first thing you will do is defeat the capital of Grenada. Although the city was damaged by a hurricane in 2004, it was quickly rebuilt thanks to the United States, Canada, and the European Union. This incredibly beautiful seaside town will pick up your sympathies at first sight, and the people will enchant you with their hospitality and kindness. You will have the opportunity to see the remains of Gothic cathedrals, but also beautiful homes painted in cheerful Caribbean colors that contribute to making every tourist feel comfortable, as if at home. Once you’re there, visit the main square and buy some of the recognizable spices – cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, and others.

2. Fort George
This fortress will tell you a story you have not heard yet because it was the center of the hotspot during the great changes in this country, both political and military. The view from the fortress will leave you breathless as it stretches indefinitely – from Carenage to the beaches of Grand Anse and Point Saline. Point Saline is the new cruise terminal of the mentioned city. Of the historical elements, only the cannons remain, which are still correct and the shot from them can be heard from time to time.
3. Underwater Sculpture Park
If you don’t dive into the depths off the coast of Moliniere Point and don’t visit the sculptures created by sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor, you can’t even say you’ve explored Grenada. These sculptures, located on the sandy bottom of the ocean, have become a real tourist attraction that is visited daily by divers, as well as those who are not so brave to dive, so they can look through glass-bottomed boats. The sculptures are located at various depths, up to 12m. The sculptures represent 26 children holding hands, and the interpretations are different. Some say the sculptures represent a life cycle because they hold hands, while others say children represent slaves who were thrown off ships years ago.
4. Morne Rouge Bay
Although located next to the famous Grand Anse beach, this beach has a special emperor, especially for lovers of romance. Walks in the twilight with a loved one while the pink-red colors spill over the sky are worth remembering, and rest under coconut palms will relax all your senses. If we add a cocktail from one of the nearby bars, the pleasure is complete!
5. Grand Etang National Park and Forest Reserve
This nature reserve is rich in very rich flora and fauna. The forest reserve is supported by excellent written and human guides, and the trails are very good. When we talk about the time you need to set aside for a tour, we will say that the shortest expedition lasts 15 minutes.
6. Levera National Park
The first thing you will notice when visiting this place are two saltwater lakes. This place is very popular on weekends, and the pond is one of the most important wildlife habitats on this island. Although there was a plan to develop this place into a luxury resort, the Government failed with that plan.
7. House of Chocolate
Something is coming that will make all the sweets favorites happy – House of Chocolate. This unique mini-museum will delight you by presenting the history of chocolate in its way. Also, you will be able to try some flavors, as well as enjoy other treats such as ice cream and cakes.
8. Concord Falls
Prepare for hiking, because to get to the waterfall, you will have to walk through a tropical rainforest, see some of the very rare fruits and vegetables, and only then reach three mountain waterfalls that will cool you but also leave you breathless.
9. Laura’s Herb and Spice Garden
This place is a real little paradise for botanists. Here you will have the opportunity to get acquainted with many types of herbs, as well as to get acquainted with medicinal plants and how to use them. There is also a small red, wooden house – souvenir shop, where you can buy your favorite herbs.
10. Annandale Falls
We came to another waterfall that you must see. Even if you do not have too much time to see, this beautiful waterfall, which is surrounded by tropical flowers and trees, should not be missed, because you will be able to see it even from the car. So, no hiking!
11. ATV Tour (St Lucia Shore)
Adrenaline enthusiasts will surely be happy to hear that by renting an all-terrain vehicle they can access even the most inaccessible terrains and can enjoy sightseeing of rural communities, plantations, and past historical sites.
12. Tate the tipples of the River Antoine Rum Distillery
When you are already here, why not visit this old rum distillery that still works, although it lags far behind modern standards.
13. Roger’s Barefoot Beach Bar
If you want to experience Grenada in a completely different way, a tour of this beach bar is a must. You can reach it only by sailing or over a locked bridge. You will be surprised to see that there is no water or electricity on the island, lobsters are being grilled, and children are enjoying themselves hammocked.
14. Sandy Island
This is one of those places that when you visit you feel like you are in paradise. A tropical lagoon with crystal clear, turquoise watercolor, endless beaches with white sand, incredibly beautiful coral reefs, and multicolored fish are just some of the scenes you will experience if you step here.
15. Grenada National Museum
Although not very spacious, this museum will tell you a story from the past of this country, from the slave trade to whaling.
