Grenada: Half-Day Unspoiled Tropical Island Experience

1. Grenada: Half-Day Unspoiled Tropical Island Experience

Here’s an opportunity to experience Grenada’s colorful culture and natural beauty. Spend a half-day visiting the island’s top sites. Begin your tour with a visit to St. George’s, the island’s capital, and see its historical landmarks. From Fort George, you’ll have 360-degree views of the city, the island’s mountainous interior, and of Grand Anse Beach to the south. Stop at the local market and marvel at the variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, and spices. After visiting the capital, you’ll take a scenic 20-minute drive to Annandale Falls. This is the perfect opportunity to swim and watch the official jumpers. Enjoy a walk through the surrounding tropical gardens. Another major natural attraction is the Grand Etang Rainforest. Situated nearly 2,000 feet above the sea, the forest features native wildlife, numerous trails, and scenic lookouts that offer views of different parts of Grenada. Visit the crater lake, a natural volcanic feature of the island. You’ll find an information center, restaurant and bar, and shops here. There’s also entertainment on offer that’s provided by local musicians. After visiting the rainforest, you’ll continue on to Grenada Distillers, home of world-renowned Clarke’s Court products. This is the maker of the island’s top rum. After a 5-minute tour of the operation, you’ll get to sample many of the products (costs not included). You may be starting to get hungry by now. Just a 15-minute drive from the distillery is Morne Rouge Beach, which provides the ideal setting for a meal. Experience delicious island dishes accompanied by local juices and other drinks. Enjoy swimming, water sports, or just relaxing on the sandy beach.

Grenada: Island Spice Tour

2. Grenada: Island Spice Tour

Benefit from pickup at your hotel or the cruise ship terminal, and then drive in air-conditioned comfort along the west coast to the fishing town of Gouyave. Pass a nutmeg factory where most of the island's spices are processed for export.    Make your way down a bumpy road to the Dougaldston Estate, and step back in time as the spice plantation comes into view. Visit the building where trays of mace, cocoa, cinnamon, pimento, or cloves are left to dry, depending on the season. Get invited to scratch 'n' sniff the leaves of various plants and guess what they are.  Continue uphill to the Belvedere Plantation, nestled in the cool climate of the mountains where bananas are grown. Travel through the lush landscape to take souvenir photos of the forest reserve and crater lake of Grand Etang National Park. Encounter native Mona monkeys, unique to Grenada in the western hemisphere. End with a stop at the spectacular cascades of Annandale Falls.

What people are saying about St. George's

Our tour was on Boxer day which meant that places on the stated itinerary were closed. However, Tony was more than capable of working with us and improvising a very nice itinerary, complete with great stories and conversation! Also, an excellent safe driver as we ended up circumnavigating the entire island. We’re very happy.

Ronnie was very friendly, knowledgeable and interesting, there was nothing he didn't know about the island, Fantastic van, very comfortable, top class service all round, 6 stars!

This was probably one of best tours that I ever went on! Ronnie went above and beyond! We enjoyed every minute! He's knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile.

Tony was amazing. We had a great time and learned loads about the country. Would recommend Tony to everyone.

Great tour and best option to spend a day on Grenada. Bless!
