Where to eat in Grenada

Experience a vacation with all senses at the second largest nutmeg supplier in the world. The precious spice can be harvested only after eight years for the first time. We suggest visiting the Gouyave Nutmeg Processing Station, where they produce so-called Grenada’s black gold and offer guided tours through the factory. You will learn the production process of this spice as well as its various benefits for your health - all surrounded by an amazing aroma! 

And for the real spices lovers: head up to the Spice Market right in the center of the capital city of St. George, and stroll along the various stands to pick your favorite spices. 

Chocolate lovers are also in the right place. Grenada is home to many cocoa plantations as well as actual chocolate factories. If you’re curious about the production, you can visit the Grenada Chocolate Company and enjoy a guided factory tour. Otherwise, you can learn new things at the small museum House of Chocolate, while buying and trying some of the finest chocolate products - a paradise for connoisseurs!

Grenada is also famous for its rum production, with countless varieties of rum distilled on the island and combined with local spices for unique flavors. The River Antoine Rum Distillery has been making rum traditionally since 1785, with traditional 250-year-old equipment that is surely worth visiting - an incredible experience for rum lovers.

Finally, the town of Gouyve has become a popular destination for trying some of the best fish on the island. The renowned Fish Friday is a weekly appointment not to be missed: locals and tourists gather in the town to enjoy some of the freshest seafood such as lobsters. Starting from 6 pm, you will experience a unique accompanied by the amazing rhythm of steel pans.

Water sports in Grenada

The Caribbeans are also a synonym for turquoise waters and fantastic marine species, which leads us to the next mandatory activity on the island: diving! Jump off the boat and into the sea, whether for a dive or for snorkeling in the paradisiac waters of Grenada. There are countless shipwrecks to visit, such as the Bianca C, one of the largest diveable shipwrecks in the world – 181 meters long and 23 meters wide - as well as beautiful reefs with a huge variety of species such as the rare leatherback turtles, whales, and sharks. 

Magazine Beach is one of the best and safest spots for snorkeling on the island, while in Moliniere Bay, you can visit the Underwater Sculpture Park with life-size statues at a depth of four meters, partially hidden but beautiful, and also home to corals and different varieties of fish.

Grenada Nature: top attractions 

Grenada's tropical nature is a paradise of another world! The island is home to the Grand Etang Natural Park, a protected region of the Caribbeans that includes the Grand Etang volcanic Lake, the Seven Sisters waterfalls, and various animal species, such as the Mona Monkey. 

You can also visit the nearby Annandale Falls immersed in the lush tropical vegetation, which can be reached after a short hike. A variety of performers and impressive cliff divers will entertain you during the visit! 

For a wow effect, you can visit the famous Black Beach in St. John, which can also be reached with an easy 20-minute trek from the city of Concord. The sand here is pitch black due to the volcanic origin and creates an impressive contrast with the turquoise colors of the water. You can also venture into the nearby cave, which still presents Amerindians’ markings on its walls.
