Whenever I get the chance to go home to Grenada, I’m always excited. Call me biased, but it is one of the most beautiful places on earth 🙂 Growing up there, it’s easy to take it for granted because you’re accustomed to everything there is to see and do. During my recent visit (like I did on my previous trip), I shared pieces of island life with you on social media. I also got a lot of questions about things to do. In this post, I’m sharing 5 Things To Do in Grenada.
1) GO TO THE BEACH
Grenada, like many Caribbean islands has many beaches you can choose from, but you must visit the world famous Grand Anse beach. Grand Anse is located in the south of the island. The beach is two miles of white sand and clear “blue” water. How can you not want go?! 🙂
2) EAT – Local
During my recent visit, Sapodillas were in season, so I ate a ton of those. There are so many local dishes to choose from that you must find something you like. If you try nothing else, you MUST try Oil down which is our national dish. You’ll get a sneak peak of Oil down in the video below.
On my last visit, I took a tour of the Grenada Heritage Center (also referred to as the Spice Basket Museum). Even if I grew up in Grenada there was so much to learn and see.
4) PARTICIPATE IN LOCAL TRADITIONS/FESTIVITES
Depending on the time of the year you visit, you will be able to get a taste of Carnival (Spicemas), Sailing Festival, or even the Grenada Chocolate Festival. Since I visited during Easter, it was all about Kite Flying.
5) RELAX aka GO WITH THE FLOW
After all you’re on vacation right?! Even if you don’t have anything scheduled, just being there, breathing in the fresh air, listening to the “island sounds”, sipping on some coconut water, and taking in the view from where you stand, is an awesome experience.
These are just a few of MANY things you can do in Grenada. We had plans to go River Tubing but it rained a lot the night before our visit so we had to cancel. On my next visit, I hope to share that experience with you.
