Founded by British artist Jason de Caires Taylor, the Molinière Underwater Sculpture Park is one of a kind. Marine life mingles with life-size sculptures of men and women in various poses, including the famous installation of women clasping hands. This curious, yet captivating, attraction is accesible to both snorkellers and scuba divers.
Arguably the most attractive town in the Carribean, St George's is full of colour. Red-roofed buildings and colonial-era architecture look out over the charming harbour, while quaint shops and cafes line its narrow streets. Visit the Grenada Sugar Factory for an interesting and historical guided tour, which ends in the sampling of their main product: rum.
Snorkellers, sailors, and sunbathers flock to Sandy Beach for its incredible coral gardens, turquoise waters, and immaculate sand. Located off the west side of Hillsborough Bay, this deserted sandbar is as close to an unspoiled island-paradise as you can get. Water taxis run to Sandy Island from Hillsborough and take 15 minutes, but be sure to arrange a pick-up time.
Deep in the mountainous interior of Grenada sits Grand Étang National Park, an area of majestic natural wonder. Central to this rainforest and wildlife sanctuary is the 36-acre Grand Étang Lake, which fills the crater of an extinct volcano. Keep an eye out for the lush flora and magnificent fauna, including the Mona monkey, and many species of bird.
Nutmeg is a big part of Grenada's heritage, with the first trees planted here by the British in 1843. The Gouyave Nutmeg Processing Cooperative, which churns out 3 million pounds of the spice every year, offers an intruiging and aromatic insight into how the workers sort and process these tasty pods.
