Grenada is not a big country. But what it lacks in scale, it more than makes up for variety.

So what are the best things to do on the “Spice Island”?

1. Spice up your life

Grenada is known as the “Spice Island” for its clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, or allspice, which grow in abundance here. Historically, this country has been a producer and exporter of a large number of spices.

Traditional Grenadian food has been a tourist attraction for a long time. Not without reason, a wealth of unique dishes thrill the taste buds of food aficionados from across the globe.

Here are TOP things to taste in Grenada:

  • Oil Down
  • Fried Bake and Saltfish
  • Lambie Souse
  • Callaloo Soup
  • Pelau
  • Roti

Insider tip: Don’t ask to make the spacy roti (unless you want something burning)

  • Crab Back
  • Curry Goat
  • Doubles
  • Nutmeg Ice Cream
  • Sweet Potato Pudding
  • Grenadian Fudge

  • Coconut drops

Popular drinks in Grenada:

  • ·Carib

2. Swim in a waterfall

What can be better than plunging into the refreshing waters of a huge waterfall? It’s something magnificent. In Grenada, there are many to choose from. But you should know that the most

accessible one is Annandale Falls. There, all visitors are welcome to swim and relax. Or maybe watch the guys jump off the Falls.

You can also try Mount Carmel Falls, twice as high and much less visited. Again, it is unlikely to disappoint you. Finally, it is worth mentioning a rural hike to Concord Falls.

3. Sightsee in St. George’s

See breath-taking underwater sculptures, get yourself sweets in House of Chocolate, enjoy the beauty of Laura’s Herb & Spice Garden, or visit Annandale Falls mentioned above. No matter if you’re into adventure or relaxation, this place has something for people of all ages.

4. Take a sunset cruise

Take a boat tour on the beautiful blue transparent waters of the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. You can take for this purpose one of the traditional wooden sloops. Watching the sunset and sipping a rum cocktail, what could be better?

5. Taste overproof rum

Take a tour around the River Antoine Rum Distillery. Interestingly, the machinery hasn’t changed since 1785, and it still uses the oldest working in the Caribbean 8-metre water wheel.

6. Hike in the Grand Etang National Park

Located in the island’s center, this park is just a beautiful mix of mountainous ridges and thickly forested slopes. The Grand Etang Lake sits right in the middle, the water-filled crater of an active volcano. Local stories persist that there lives a mermaid given to seducing men. However, while traveling through the park, you are more likely to meet less threatening inhabitants. The point at issue is Mona Monkeys brought from West Africa.

7. Spend a day on Carriacou

Known as the “Isle of Reefs,” Carriacou is a small island just 20 minutes away from Grenada (by air). It is home to nurse sharks, turtles, barracudas, stingrays, and other sea animals. Day trip might introduce you to the miniature capital Hillsborough. And you still have plenty of time to swim among the vibrant marine life.

8. See underwater sculptures

 do in Grenada

This unusual art gallery created by British sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor is located on Grenada’s west coast. These are 75 monumental works cast in long-lasting pH-neutral cement. Frankly speaking, glass-bottom boat trips don’t give credit to their beauty. Choose snorkel or scuba in order to feel the magnificence of these masterpieces.

9. Visit a chocolate factory

The Belmont Estate plantation was established in the 1600s. Based on organic cocoa production, the factory is owned by a family of East Indian descent.

10. Lime at the beach

Liming is the art of doing nothing. And it’s an unofficial favorite national leisure activity.

11. Stretch your legs with the locals

Grenada’s Hash House Harriers are known as “drinkers with a running problem.” The event is attended by about 300 participants, and tourists can join locals to run or walk around a trail.
