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.
