The Caribbean's spice island is a sparkling jewel of sugar-white sands and lush, forested hills, scented with nutmeg and cinnamon. Pair luxurious resorts with the best in laid-back island life as you swap scenic walks and waterfall swims with days spent on glorious beaches and diving and snorkelling over technicolour coral reefs.
One large island and two smaller ones make up Grenada, a quiet corner of the Caribbean that's managed to remain relatively off-radar compared to its big-hitting cousins. As such, you can expect a typically relaxed vibe to your island adventure, taking time out to relax in the sun, but also exploring the wealth of other attractions on offer.
On the largest island, the picturesque, hillside town of St George, Grenada's pretty capital. has a deep horseshoe-shaped harbour lined with eighteenth century warehouses. Grand Anse Beach is the main resort area, with beautiful, low-key beaches that are good for snorkelling and diving. Head inland to Grand Etang National Park to discover a crater lake, a wealth of flora and fauna and some good walking tracks.
Elsewhere, Carriacou is a laid-back rural retreat with an unspoiled West Indian character and uncrowded beaches. A yachtsman's paradise, it holds a large regatta in summer. Then, there's Petit Martinique – a tiny paradise islet that takes around an hour to walk all the way round; a large mountain dominates the island, from the top of which you can enjoy panoramic views of the other Grenadine islands.
