Grand Anse is Grenada’s most beautiful beach, a 2-mile stretch of powdery white sand backed by lush green trees. Forget high-octane adventure – people come here to forget their troubles and relax with a good dose of sun, sea and sand! Grenada is for the most part advertised as a destination for honeymoons and romantic getaways, so if you are travelling with children, pick a hotel that organises activities for kids.
Located on the south-west coast in a slight bay, Grand Anse beach is protected from wind and is therefore very calm for swimming and water activities. Water skiing, parasailing and kayaking are all popular, but snorkelling and diving in the crystal clear water are where Grenada comes into its own. All the beaches in Grenada are public, so you’ll never have to pay for access to the best spots!
Grenada has a distinct and tasty cuisine, with lots of hearty meat dishes and fragrant spices. Oildown is the island’s signature dish, a stew of salted meat, breadfruit and vegetables steamed in coconut milk and spices. Tourists can also enjoy jerk chicken, fresh seafood and roti, a satisfying snack of curry in a wrap. Complement your meal with a rum cocktail, local Carib beer, or a dessert of nutmeg ice cream.
Most people who come to Grenada come here to do very little except lie on the beach and sunbathe away their stress, but if you get itchy feet you definitely have options for adventures! The Grand Etang National Park is a beautiful mountain region that is perfect for hiking, or you can take in views of the island from the water on a boat trip or romantic dinner cruise.
