Grenada, with its unspoilt landscapes, has the perfect balance, appealing to the interest of adventure seekers, beach dwellers or couples looking for a romantic destination. On this picturesque and petite island, you can go for a swim in the crystal clear waters of Grand Anse Beach to trekking through the rainforest of Seven Sisters Waterfalls, all within a day. This English-speaking nation has some of the friendliest people in the Caribbean, so, even if you happen to get lost, you will surely encounter other aspects of their vibrant culture and hospitality
The names of Grenada’s villages, architecture in their towns and the dialect spoken throughout Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique bear reference to Grenada’s intriguing history of South American and European settlements. If you’re a traveller who likes to engage in the history of your destination as much as basking in the sun, then come and discover the journey from colonialism to democracy, which reveals a captivating course of events.
Underwater Sculpture Park
One of Grenada’s most popular snorkeling sites is an underwater gallery of sculptures in the Molinere Beauséjour Marine Protected Area, that very much reflect Grenada’s culture. Fashioned from a variety of media but predominantly from simple substrates including concrete and rebar, they create an ideal substrate, relatively fixed and permanent, on which marine life may develop. They are sympathetically located to enhance the reef, making natural use of its varied topography of craggy gullies and sun-dappled sandy patches.
