In the north of the island there are several restored plantation houses that are open to the public.
They remain as monuments to Grenada’s history and all are open for a traditional plantation luncheon served on the terrace. Home cooking at its best!
Everyone who comes to Grenada should take a trip to the tropical rainforest in the Grand Etang National Park. It is easy to reach the park in your hired car and there are several trails set out for you to follow.
However we strongly recommend that you take a trip with one of the experienced local guides who will lead you through this wonderland of waterfalls and vegetation while explaining all the fascinating features of the forest and its wildlife.

Cricket heritage centre
Grenada is now the home of the West Indies Cricket Heritage Centre. This impressive permanent exhibition is housed in the new National Cricket Stadium just outside St George’s and was opened officially on October 9th 2009.
The exhibition features an amazing collection of cricket memorabilia from all eras of West Indies cricket, with bats, blazers, shirts, photographs and books featuring all the great names of Caribbean cricket.
This centre is a must for all cricket enthusiasts.
Grenada is an island of British, French and West Indian cultural influences, all of which are visible in its colourful capital, St. George’s.
Head up to Fort George for views over the city and the harbour or to Fort Frederick for a bird’s-eye prospect over miles of green hills to the north and east of the city.
Grenada has several fabulous waterfalls, with only a few of them known to the general public. Depending upon your fitness level, you can choose between a gentle stroll through a well tended garden to get to Annadale Falls; or, if you are feeling very energetic, a 20 minute hike through the rain forest to get to the Seven Sisters and Honeymoon Falls.
On some of the trails to the waterfalls, we recommend that you take a hiking guide. The reason that we recommend this, is because, depending on your final destination and with some of the trails not properly marked, a short stroll through the rain forest can easily turn into a long hike.
Guides can be hired at the Grand Etang forest reserve, and most tour companies offer guided trips to all of the waterfalls.
Grenada is known as the Spice Island and the aromas of the famous nutmeg is all around you. The nutmeg and its mace are vital to the economy and all the nutmeg processing stations will be pleased to show you around.
You can also visit the spice farms where every imaginable herb and spice grows in profusion
Countless writers have described St George’s as the prettiest capital in the Caribbean and it really is a stunning setting.
The horseshoe of the Carenage runs around the harbour and is home to several waterside restaurants. The town itself has a wide range of shops and stores as well as many historic buildings to visit.
The Saturday morning market is definitely not to be missed!
