Grand Anse is the most famous beach on the island of Grenada. The Grand Anse has a three-kilometer arc of fine, golden sand which is surrounded by turquoise and deep blue waters that has calm waves, making it suitable for swimming. The aftermath of the activities on the beach may include a shopping splurge to the Grande Anse Craft and Spice market that are located near the beach. Other places to visit along the shores are the many restaurants and resorts, one of which includes the famous Spice Island Beach Resort that is popular in the Caribbean.
St. Georges is undeniably one of the most beautiful port towns in the Caribbean. This colorful town is surrounded by deep blue waters scattered with boaters. The brick and stone buildings push back the volcanic hill to the background with its colorful walls and red-tiled roofs. Stroll along the streets and you will find local vendors selling locally made spices and crafts. Notable sites in St. Georges include the Fort George and the Fort Frederick. You may also visit the Grenada National Museum to see the historical artifacts of Grenada that are culturally and historically relevant to the island. And if you love chocolates, visit the House of Chocolate to experience the local cocoa industry in Grenada and taste the scrumptious sweet treats. And if you have the time, blend in with the natives in the St. George’s Market Square to visit the popular Saturday morning market and stock up with fresh tropical fruits and aromatic spices.
West coast of Grenada is the Underwater Sculpture Park, which is a unique gallery of sculptures submerged under water. Interestingly, the gallery of sculptures doubles as an artificial reef for the organisms in the marine protected area. The creator behind this masterpiece is Jason deCaires Taylor. The gallery includes pieces like Amerindian petroglyphs and life-size figures cast from the local children of Grenada. There are different ways to admire the works of art, some of which include diving and viewing from glass-bottom boats, but the face-to-face experience is the best way to fully immerse yourself in the artistic experience of the Underwater Sculpture Park.
Located in the lush mountains towards the north of St. Georges is the Annandale Falls. This 10-meter waterfall is situated in a tropical forest, and it is relatively an easy trail to travel. Even just by watching the water cascading from afar, you will appreciate the beautiful and calming effect of this tropical paradise. Change rooms are available for visitors if ever you plan on swimming in its glorious waters.
