Nutmeg-tinged air and azure seas that sparkle like sequins under an unadulterated sun: Grenada, the southernmost island in the Grenadines island chain, is heaven on earth for those who love a bit of sun, sand, and adventure. Although most tourists spend their time on the glorious beaches located in the southwest of the main island, the entire country is full of idyllic-looking waterfalls, phenomenal little shacks serving up Caribbean supper, and wildlife that you’ll have only seen in magazines.
Being surrounded by (mostly) calm seas means the Caribbean island is also perfect for water sports lovers of all abilities, and the warm water means if you aren’t the most naturally talented then falling into the sea won’t be too much of an issue. The crystal-clear, temperate waters also make it a great spot for diving and snorkelling, as you’re able to see schools of fluorescent fish and some stunning coral with ease. After a day of activities on the island, there’s plenty to do in the evening too – Grenadians are laid-back and they love their fun and their rum, and are always more than happy to share.
