Dariece Swift author's bio Goats On The Road

The island of Grenada in the Caribbean is a true jewel. There are numerous things to do in Grenada, but there isn’t a lot of information online about this tiny island nation.

Fast Answers: The Best of The Best in Grenada

We lived on and returned to Grenada on and off for the past for over 7 years, so we know lots of unique things to do in Grenada and this blog has more information about Grenada activities than any other online today.

The “Isle of Spice” is located just far enough south in the Caribbean to avoid the tourism masses that the northern islands see, yet it’s still easy enough to travel to Grenada on a cruise ship or a direct flight from North America.

People often ask us “What is there to do in Grenada?!” The answer: There are so many things to do in Grenada, you could spend a year and never be bored.

If you’re wondering what to do in Grenada during your trip, I’ve got you covered. Here is my list of 61 best things to do in Grenada:

*This post has been updated with new attractions for 2023.

61 Best Things To Do in Grenada

Let’s go! Here are the 61 best things to do on the beautiful island of Grenada. In the 5+ years we’ve spent on the island, we’ve done many more fun activities than this, but we’ve narrowed it down so you can chip away at this list on your travels to The Isle of Spice!

1. Try Doubles (Grand Anse)

Doubles are a delicious breakfast found in the southern Caribbean and while they’re originally from Trinidad, they’re so delicious that they make our list of things to do in Grenada.

Sweet and spicy chickpea curry is wrapped inside of a soft bara bread.

Latta and her husband make the best ones on the island, and you can find them serving doubles out of the back of their orange van on Wall Street in Grand Anse. Update: Latta and Frank now have an orange and dark coloured van! Look for either one of them. 

2. Visit Grand Etang National Park (St. Andrews)

This beautiful, lush park is set high in the mountains of Grenada. At 1,900ft, this is the perfect spot to escape the heat and enjoy nature.

With the Seven Sisters Waterfalls, a lake, and endless walking trails, Grand Etang is a place you could return to again and again. Visiting this National Park is one of the top things to do in Grenada for sure. 

Join this highly-rated day trip which includes round-trip transportation, a guide to show you the way, and free time to enjoy swimming in the waterfalls.

*Note* These days there’s a new highwire canopy obstacle course that has been built in the rainforest at Grand Etang falls. Many people enjoy this activity and it’s something fun to do in Grenada with kids.

3. Swim at La Sagesse Beach (St. David)

A stunning cove with soft sand, clear waters, and lined with palm trees. This is one of the best beaches in Grenada. You can walk the length of the beach and hardly see another person.

There’s only one hotel on this beach, which has a restaurant open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. As La Sagesse is often very quiet, be mindful of your belongings and your safety when on this beach.

Update 2023: Sadly, there are new developments happening on this beach which has (in my opinion) harmed the natural feel and overall look of La Sagesse. The restaurant is still a nice place to eat, but the beach has lost some of its allure.

Top Tours in Grenada

Do you have a day to spare and want to take a tour around the island? Many people aren’t comfortable driving abroad (and, the driving in Grenada can be a bit crazy!), but a great option is to take a half-day tour, or a full-day tour while ticking off some of the main activities in Grenada along the way. 

1. Full-Day Tour with Chocolate and Rum Sampling

This highly-rated full-day tour enjoy chocolate factories, national parks, strolls through town, rum tasting and waterfalls in this amazing full-day tour. Learn more about this tour here.

2. Half-Day Grenada Sunshine Highlights Tour

This highly-rated half-day tour takes in the lesser-visited west coast of Grenada. Heading up the coast, you’ll take in the Belvidere Estate (learn about the growing of fruits, vegetables and spices), visit Concord Waterfalls, the Gouyave Nutmeg Processing Station, the Diamond Chocolate Factory (free samples of Jouvay chocolate included), and a stop at the Grand Etang National Park on the way back. Learn more and read traveller reviews here.

3. Half-Day Unspoiled Tropical Island Experience

This highly-rated full-day tour is one of the only tours on the island that takes in the colorful capital of St. Georges with a fun market tour, before heading to the island’s best waterfalls and Grand Etang National park. Finally, the tour ends at one of our favorite beaches, Mourne Rouge. You can’t go wrong with this one. Learn more and read traveler reviews here.

4. Enjoy Sunsets at La Luna (St. George)

There are many places to enjoy the golden sunset with a glass of wine in hand, but the best spot has to be at the gorgeous La Luna Hotel.

Going for a swim, lounging on beach chairs, and enjoying the sunset with a drink is one of the more romantic things to do in Grenada. You can come here for a drink at the beautiful open-air bar even if you’re not a hotel guest.

Sunset at Laluna is a real secret on the island! Even the locals don’t know about the half-price drinks, so you won’t likely find this on any other list of things to do in Grenada.

5. Sailing (St. George)

Getting out on the water is a must when visiting an island! Sailing up and down the Caribbean coastline aboard a sailboat is a magical experience. We’ve sailed with quite a few sailing companies on the island. Many of them are now closed down but Savvy Sailing is still our favorite and still going strong.

The company is run by a local Grenadian Captain, Danny, who is also a great friend of ours. You can’t ask for a better crew and captain with the perfect mix of fun, sun, and safety while out on the waters around Grenada.

If you plan on spending more time in this region of the world, make sure to visit the Bahamas — in particular, the Exumas. We recently went swimming with the famous pigs and rented a boat to explore all of the amazing cays! The water around the Bahamas is crystal clear and seeing swimming pigs is something you don’t want to miss.

6. Eat at Streetside BBQ’s (Island Wide on Fridays)

Every weekend, local vendors set up their BBQs on the street and serve up some delicious pork and chicken. Check out the BBQ at D’Cliff, St. Paul’s, Jerk chicken in Grand Anse Valley, and Rosanne’s BBQ near Red Gate (St. David) it’s the best BBQ on the island!

7. Party at Dodgy Dock (True Blue, St. George)

This awesome marina-side restaurant and bar is a nice place to meet up with friends for an afternoon beer or dinner. The views of the water and sailboats are lovely.

Plus, you can also stay here at the True Blue Bay Resort, or pay for a day pass which will grant you access to the watersports, pools, lounge chairs, food and drinks. Click here to learn more about True Blue.

Update 2023: Every Wednesday at Dodgy Dock is street food night. This is the perfect opportunity to eat lots of local food from friendly local vendors and support Grenadian small businesses.

8. Go Hashing: One of The Most Unique Things To Do in Grenada (Island Wide)

The Hash House Harriers are a social running/walking group that meets every Saturday. Someone sets up a trail around the island (usually about 2 hours long) and the runners/walkers follow piles of shredded paper until they reach the finish line.

The starting and finishing point is typically at a rum shack! It’s a lot of fun and a very unique thing to do in Grenada.

Check out our article: On! On! The Art of Hashing in Grenada

Fun Note: Hashing is one of the best things to do on Grenada because you can become a part of a pretty cool community with loads of locals, expats, students, and tourists on the island.

9. Scuba Diving

The diving around Grenada is stunning. This island isn’t really known for being a diving destination, but with the first Underwater Sculpture Park in the world, shipwrecks, and coral that has been virtually untouched, it really should be more popular.

Check out Dive Grenada, the best dive shop on the island with excellent divemasters, and equipment. Nick has done numerous dives with this company and highly recommends them.

10. Stay at Mount Cinnamon (St. George)

Mount Cinnamon is our top pick for the best hotel in Grenada, but it’s also the best place to enjoy weekend barbecues.

This is one of the best things to do in Grenada on a Friday night. If you like bonfires, s’mores, steel pan music and BBQs (and who doesn’t?!) head to the Savvy Beach Cabana, which is one of the best restaurants in Grenada.

Dine under the stars with your feet submerged in the soft sand, while the local steelpan band serenades you with their tunes.

For dinner, take your pick between chicken, steak, fish, lobster and more, which are all served with a side of rice and peas, mashed pumpkin, roast potatoes and house salad. 

For dessert, relive your childhood by toasting a marshmallow on the beach bonfire to create your own s’more, complete with graham crackers and a square of Grenadian chocolate.

Insider Tip: Many guests assume that the side dishes are served in hollowed-out coconut shells, but they’re actually made from calabash – impress your server with your island knowledge! 

Outside of Friday nights, the Savvy Beach Cabana is open for lunch and drinks from 10:00am to sundown. This is a great lunchtime spot with a diverse, tasty, and affordable menu. Don’t miss the catch of the day, the chuck burger, and (when in season) the lobster linguine.

Savvy Beach Cabana is a part of Mount Cinnamon Grenada, one of the top-rated accommodation options here on the island. If you’re looking for a great place to have dinner outside of Friday nights, then check out their second restaurant, Savvy’s.

11. Whisper Cove Marina (St. David)

If you’re looking for something to do in Grenada on Saturday afternoons, look no further! For only $10 USD you can enjoy a steak lunch with french fries, salad, and a cold beer! (Update: This restaurant is now under new management. On Saturdays, they now offer Spicy wings, Fish cakes, Fish tacos or Battered fish, with fries for $11 USD).

12. Hog Island (St. David)

This gorgeous island is just a 10-minute boat ride from Whisper Cove Marina, or you can drive the bumpy road from Mt. Hartman Dove Sanctuary, and then walk across the bridge. Or, you can set off on a long walk near the Secret Cove Marina.

Hog Island has a great trail for hiking, a nice (shallow beach), and wonderful views. This is one of the more off-track places to visit in Grenada.

13. Roger’s Bar (Hog Island)

There’s a little ramshackle bar located on Hog Island and every Sunday, Roger puts on a lunch BBQ consisting of chicken or fish, green salad, macaroni salad and potato salad. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy a beer while swimming in the stunning water.

14. St. George’s Carenage (St. George)

St. George’s (what the locals call “town”) is a very colourful capital city! Walking along the carenage while enjoying the views of the water, the buildings, and the boats coming and going makes for a great afternoon. 

15. Fort George (St. George)

This fort was built in 1705 by the French and is located to the west of the harbour. The views from atop the fort looking down on St. George’s are fabulous. An entrance fee of $5EC is payable when you enter the fort.

16. Volunteer at the GSPCA (St. George)

Do some good during your holiday and spend a couple of hours helping the sweet dogs and cats at the GSPCA. You can stop by for a visit to give the animals some love, spend an hour or so taking a dog for a walk, or, if you don’t have the time, you could always donate some cash to this non-profit company.

Be warned, the fur babies are so cute you’ll want to take one home with you!

While looking for things to do in Grenada, consider activities that give back to the local communities. The GSPCA helps provide affordable animal care to locals through donations and volunteer work.

17. Belmont Estate (St. Patrick)

This gorgeous 17th-century plantation is a great place to go to learn about cocoa processing. You can also visit gardens, the goat dairy farm, and enjoy a delicious Grenadian lunch.

To go on a tour of the plantation and learn about cocoa, the cost is only 13EC ($4.80) /person, which includes tasting some delicious chocolate at the end!

18. See The Leatherback Turtles (St. Patrick)

Leatherback turtles start their nesting season on Levera Beach in March, and the hatchlings head out to the water by July.

Seeing these massive turtles haul themselves up on shore, dig a canal in the sand to drop their eggs, cover them up and head back out to sea is an unforgettable experience.

You need to come here in the evening with a guide in order to see the turtles. Learn more about volunteering with the conservation of leatherback turtles here.

seeing the leatherback turtles is one of the best things to do in grenada

19. River Antoine Rum Distillery (St. Patrick)

It’s a known fact that rum is the drink of choice throughout the Caribbean. The River Antoine Rum Distillery’s processes have changed very little since the 1800’s. This is the oldest functioning water-propelled distillery not only in Grenada but in the entire Caribbean.

The best Grenada rum depends on who you ask, but if you’re looking for an interesting tour, check out this place. Tours here are $5EC ($1.85) and you get a tasting at the end. Bottom’s up!

20. Hike to Golden Waterfalls (a more adventurous thing to do in Grenada) 

If you’re looking for a stunning hike with hot and cold waterfalls, then the trek to Golden Waterfalls is a must.

The falls are that gorgeous golden colour due to the sulfur springs flowing out of one of the vents in Mount St. Catherine (which is an extinct volcano).

golden falls things to do in grenada

The really cool thing about the falls is that there is both hot AND cold water here — the hot sulfur spring and the cold river.

There are around 25 waterfalls on this volcanic island, but the Golden Falls have topped our list of favorites in terms of uniqueness and beauty!

A guide is definitely needed to visit here as the trail isn’t marked at all and there are some challenging parts. Contact Delon from Real Grenadian Taxi and Tours for details on visiting this natural attraction in Grenada. 

21. Try Oil Down – Grenada’s National Dish (Islandwide)

This one-pot dish is actually very complex and time-consuming to make. The ingredients are coconut, saffron, callaloo, chicken, crab, dumplings, breadfruit (and more).

We’ve only seen it made at friends’ houses, or at get-togethers, so if you want to sample a taste of Grenada, ask at your hotel where you can try it!

While we’ve listed oil down as one of the things to do in Grenada, it’s actually quite hard to find because it’s so difficult to prepare that most restaurants won’t feature it on their menu.

To maximize your chance of trying this delicious dish, come around Carnival time when there’s oil down on many street corners.

22. Sunset Sailing (St. George)

For an amazing afternoon of sailing (or multi-day trips), check out Savvy. They sail on a traditional sloop boat and offer fun times on the sea.

You’ll sail up the west coast, do some swimming, some drinking and of course, enjoy the company of Danny and his crew. Click here to read about our experience aboard the Savvy, it is definitely one of our favourite things to do in Grenada.

*Note: Savvy is locally owned and operated. Danny runs private tours on his boat, so you’ll never be stuck with a group of people who you don’t know. Click here to contact Savvy and arrange your day at sea.

23. Levera Beach (St. Patrick)

Located at the very northern tip of the island, the beach here is lovely and is a great spot for a picnic. The beach is usually quite empty, so be mindful of your belongings. Also, this is not a good beach for swimming as the currents are very strong.

24. Carib’s Leap (St. Patrick)

In 1651, rather than face domination by the French invasion, the native Carib people leaped to their death off of this cliff. Located in the town of Sauteurs, this is a very historical spot in Grenada. 

25. Royal Mt. Carmel Waterfalls (St. Andrew)

Located just 3 km south of Grenville, these are the tallest waterfalls in Grenada. After an easy 20 – 30 minute walk, you’ll arrive at the falls. A great place for a picnic and a swim.

26. Grand Anse Beach: One Of The Best Things To Do in Grenada! (St. George)

This is the largest beach in Grenada, and arguably the most beautiful. The sand is soft and white and the waters are clear and calm. This is the most popular beach in Grenada, yet it’s practically empty.

You can go diving, swimming, kayaking, snorkelling, or just chill out on the sand with a book in hand. It’s also a good spot to watch the sun set. This beach is one of the top tourist attractions in Grenada, and for good reason. 

If you’re looking for free things to do in Grenada, lounging on Grand Anse beach should be at the top of your list. 

27. Umbrella’s Beach Bar (Grand Anse Beach, St. George)

Located on Grand Anse Beach, this is a popular spot for locals, students, tourists and expats. The food is good and it’s a casual place to head in for a drink.

Try the Umbrella burger, catch sandwich, beet salad, wings and the wedges! Fridays and Saturdays they have live music from 7:00 – 9:00 and on Sundays from 5:30 – 7:30pm. Find them here on the map

28. Morne Rouge Beach (St. George)

Located one bay over from Grand Anse Beach on the south end, this is a gorgeous cove. The waters of Morne Rouge (BBC Beach) are very calm and perfectly clear. This beach is much quieter than Grand Anse, and is one of the best beaches in Grenada.

29. Fort Frederick (St. George)

Built by the French, this fort is a great place to come for views of St. George’s and the Caribbean Sea. It’s right next to Fort Mathew (below) and they both make our list of things to do in Grenada because they both have great views over the nation’s capital, St.George.

30. Fort Mathew (St. George)

Just adjacent to Fort Frederick, this fort went from battleground to insane asylum! The 18th-century fort offers underground tunnels and cells, plus army kitchens and more.

31. Practice Yoga (St. George)

Practicing yoga is one of the best things to do in Grenada after a long flight… or if you’ve been sitting on the beach for too long!

There are a few great yoga spots around Grenada. Check out Spice Harmony Yoga in St. George, MitSukha at Coyaba Beach Resort (St. George) and Sankalpa at True Blue Resort (St. George).

32. Annandale Falls (St. George)

Located just 15 minutes from St. George’s, these are the easiest falls to visit on the island. The 15-meter-high waterfall is beautiful and a great spot for a swim.

This is one of the most popular things to do in Grenada, and one of the top sights when coming from the cruise ships. So, you’ll likely see lots of people (locals and tourists) at this refreshing hot spot.

33. Laura’s Spice Garden (St. David)

Grenada is known as the Island of Spice and a trip here wouldn’t be complete without learning about the nutmeg and other spices this island is famous for.

The tour here is about 20 minutes and the guide will explain every use for each herb and plant on the property. There’s a $5EC ($1.85) entrance fee.

34. Ronda’s Ice Cream (St. David)

This small, side-of-the-road ice cream shop has local ice cream on offer. Make sure to try the cookies n’ cream! Located just before the Grenada Marina turnoff on your right-hand side when driving to La Sagesse Beach, if you’re coming from the south.

35. Levera National Park & Bathway Beach (St. Patrick)

A lovely area in the very northern reaches of the island. Walk around the lagoon, or enjoy bird-watching. Bathway Beach is a great place to spend the afternoon as well, just be aware of strong surf here.

A trip “up island” may seem like a long way to go, but it’s worth the drive and is one of the best things to do in Grenada.

36. Dragon Bay (St. George)

This local beach is a nice spot to enjoy a picnic and do some snorkelling. Here you’ll rarely see other tourists, it’s a great spot to get to know the locals.

37. Fish Friday in Gouyave (St. John)

An open-air event held each Friday. All sorts of fresh, local seafood is available and sold at little vendors. This is a very local event filled with good food, music, and dancing in the street. It starts around 6:00pm and ends around 1:00am. This is one of the most popular things to do in Grenada.

38. Go For a Craft Beer (St. George)

Located near the Calabash Hotel in Lance Aux Epines is the West Indies Beer Company. The beers are brewed in-house and are very tasty. Try the IPA! The food here is also very affordable, and they often have live music. Click here to learn more.

visit the west indies beer company is one of the fun things to do in grenada

39. Cycle Tour (St. George)

Mocha Spoke is a cool company here on the island offering cycle trips around Grenada. The guides are professional and the bikes are top-notch. Mocha Spoke is also an open-air cafe, serving up waffles, paninis, and of course, coffee! Update, they no longer run cycling tours, but still have the cafe.

40. Celebrate Carnival (St. George)

Carnival in Grenada is held every year, with the main music competitions and parades in July / early August. Music, costume, and dance competitions happen all over the island. It’s a bright, colourful, crazy festival!

Don’t miss J’ouvert, Monday Night Mas, and Pretty Mas. If you’re looking for things to do in Grenada, this celebration is our top choice.

In our opinion, this is one of the absolute best things to do in Grenada.

41. Kayak Tour (St. David)

Conservation Kayak is the company to go with if you want to do a kayak tour. They leave from Le Phare Bleu after a good 30-minute or so briefing. Tours vary, but most paddle out near Hog Island.

42. Deep-Sea Fishing (Leave From St. George)

Grenada has some excellent fishing opportunities. Sailfish, marlin, tuna, mahi-mahi, and barracuda are just some of the many fish you could hook into! If you’re an avid fisherman or woman, you’ll want to check out the Billfish Tournament which takes place each year in January

But either way, if you’re interested in a fun day at sea with a professional, safety-oriented, fun crew, contact Frank, the owner of the Oceanus. We went on a 6-hour trip with this Grenadian-owned and operated company, and highly recommend it. 

Click here to learn more about the Oceanus and book your deep-sea fishing excursion. 

43. Concord Falls (St. John)

There are actually three waterfalls here. The first is easily reached, while the other two require a bit of a hike through gorgeous scenery. It’s about 45 minutes to the second fall. This is a great place to spend the day, pack a picnic.

44. Mt. Moritz Breakfast (St. George)

This breakfast is held on the last Sunday of each month. Many local foods are on offer and there’s music as well. It’s a well-attended event and there’s lots of seating and parking.

45. Saturday Morning Grenada Market (St. George)

If you’re looking for some fresh fruits and veggies, this is the place to come on Saturdays! Located right in the center of St. George’s, just one street back from the Grenada fish market.

46. Mount St. Catherine (St. Mark)

At 840m (2,760ft), this is the highest point on the island. Mount St. Catherine is actually a stratovolcano and the youngest of the 5 volcanoes that Grenada is comprised of.

You can hike up to the top, but you’ll need to take a guide. Tours are available out of Victoria, or you could arrange them in St. George’s. As with the Golden Falls trip, you can contact Delon with Real Grenadian Taxi and Tours to learn more.

47. Magazine Beach (St. George)

This is one of the best beaches in Grenada. You’ll be sharing the beach with the guests of the Rex Grenadian hotel and Maca Bana Villas, but it’s still pretty quiet.

At the southern end of the beach is the Aquarium Restaurant which has an awesome Sunday BBQ, or bring your own food and drinks to the beach. You can snorkel here as well if you have your own gear.

48. Lake Antoine (St. Patrick)

This shallow crater lake is a great place for bird watching. There’s a trail that circles it as well. Bring some food and spend a couple of hours chilling out.

49. Grenada Fish Market (St. George)

A great place to find fresh fish! Snapper, barracuda, mahi-mahi, and more are on offer. Shore fishing in Grenada is quite popular, but to haul in these big fish, these fishermen will be out on their boats.

Prices are about $8EC ($3) / pound. Even if you’re not interested in purchasing anything, it’s an interesting and bustling place to visit.

50. Black Bay Beach with Amerindian markings (St. John)

About a 20-minute hike from Concord off the main road is this secluded beach. There’s also a cave here with Amerindian markings inside.

51. Dougaldston Spice Estate (St. John)

Learn about various spices while on tour at this 600-acre nutmeg plantation. This is a non-working spice factory now, but you can still visit to see the old buildings and machinery and get a glimpse of what a working plantation might have been like in its heyday.

52. St. George’s Anglican Church (St. George)

This church was built in 1825 but suffered during Hurricane Ivan. This church has no roof, but a bell, clock tower, some stained glass, and tiled flooring remains. It’s an interesting stop during your trip to St. George’s town.

53. National Museum (St. George)

This building has been a lot of things in the past — French Barracks, a prison, two different hotels, and a warehouse. In 1976 the museum was established.

The sections here are Slavery, First Inhabitants, Plantation Economy, Whaling & Fishing Archaeology, and Early Transport & Technology. You’ll also find Carib and Arawak artifacts here. For history buffs, this is one of the things to do in Grenada that you won’t want to miss.

54. Drive Around the Island

This is a must-do when in Grenada. You’ll probably get lost a couple of times as there aren’t many road signs, but just pull over and ask someone where you’d like to go!

Get a good map (or have Google maps), bring some food, and enjoy the day. We recommend having a picnic up near Bathway Beach. Car rentals cost around $50 / day, but once you have a car it’s easy to tick many items off your list of things to do in Grenada.

55. House of Chocolate (St. George)

Another fun thing to do in St. George’s, Grenada’s capital. This boutique bakery and mini-museum has been around for just a few years and is already a very popular spot to visit. Enjoy a homemade chocolate goodie, while learning about cocoa in Grenada. Learn more here

56. Go Bowling (St. George)

This is one of the newer things to do in Grenada. Lavo Lanes are on the road to the airport, and they have about 8 lanes for bowling.

Upstairs and the rooftop terrace are more of the party areas, complete with a bar and oftentimes, live music. If you’re wondering what to do in Grenada when it’s raining, this is a good idea. Click here to learn more.

57. Le Phare Bleu (St. David)

Le Phare Bleu is a marina, restaurant, and boutique hotel. Enjoy a meal at the newly renovated restaurant, or a drink at the Lightship which is docked just offshore.

A new addition to the hotel and restaurant is the onsite Bluelight Gin Factory. Learn more about the gin tour and information here

The surrounding area is residential (Egmont) and is a great place for walking. Try to find your way down to one of the little beaches.

58. Golfing at Grenada Golf & Country Club (Grand Anse/St. George)

You can play 9 holes ($32USD) or 18 holes ($42USD) here. The cost of a caddy and club rental is on top of the initial cost. The views of the Caribbean Sea from the greens are stunning.

There’s also brunch on Sundays from 10am, make sure to call and make a reservation beforehand. Their telephone number is 473 444 4128 and email address is: grengolfclub2017@gmail.com.

59. Visit Carriacou & Petit Martinique

The island country of Grenada actually consists of 6 smaller islands, as well as the largest island, Grenada. The sister isles of Carriacou and Petite Martinique are really the only other two islands you’ll hear about.

You can take the Osprey Ferry to visit these islands (about a 2-hour journey from Grenada to Carriacou), fly with SVG Air, or you can take a sailboat for a journey up the Grenadine chain with Savvy.

60. Listen to Steel Pan Music in Grenada 

Listening to steel pan bands while in Grenada is a must. The sound is incredible, the vibe is great and the music will make you want to dance.

You can find the music at Prickly Bay on certain nights, Friday nights at Savvy Beach Cabana, during Carnival season, and at the Spice Basket as well.

61. Pure Grenada Music Festival (St. George)

April 2016 was the debut of this music festival and it’s been going on every year since! In fact, it was listed by Billboard Magazine as a top 7 must-see festival in the Caribbean.

The venue is the grassy area at Port Louis Marina, and the entire production is top-notch. The stage, sound, vendors, and performers all come together to create this incredible event.

2018 had three different music nights: Soul, Reggae & Caribbean, with top international artists such as Daley from the UK, Chrisette Michele, and Morgan Heritage from the USA, Jah9 and Protoje from Jamaica, Alison Hinds from the UK/Barbados, and numerous Grenadian performers as well!

The local talent on this island is phenomenal. Click here to learn more about the festival, and check out our live Facebook video from the event below.

2019 Grenada Music Fest was held at Quarantine Point, with some top performers, such as Ky-Mani Marley, Maxi Priest, Busy Signal, Patrice Roberts, and the Grenadian artists Lavaman, Luni Spark & Electrify, Wuss Wayz and more. It was paused for a couple of years for obvious reasons, but now it’s back.

  1. Please add to the list,
    Take in some local art– Art and Soul Gallery at Spiceland Mall. Made in Grenada, sophisticated contemporary art. Paintings, ceramics, sculpture, glass, –great reminders of your fantastic time in Grenada.

  2. I enjoyed ready about all the lovely and wonderful places to visit and to go and eat at. Makes me want to be there right now to enjoy all that there is there. I am definitely going to put Grenada of my list of must see places. Thanks for all the good info guys!

  3. Hey Penny!

    Honestly, we did so much more, saw so much more and ate at so many more places than I listed here!! Grenada truly is jam-packed, we love this little island of Spice and it’ll be really sad to say goodbye 🙁

    Thank you for your comment. Cheers from Grenada!

  4. I don’t know if you became familiar with Caribbean soca during your time in Grenada, but do you know the song Truck On D Road by Bunji Garlin? All day I’ve been singing the chorus of “goat on d road” in my head since coming across your blog!

  5. Impressive list! Expanding on the Live Music mention, we have some of the best musicians and vocalists anywhere. Check out these amazing young women and go hear them sing whenever you have the opportunity: Sabrina and the Navigators, Tammy Baldeo, Christel LaGuerre, Jenny Jeremiah, Sonkia McKie, and Zeleka Peters. Each one of them is WOW! Barracuda is a versatile guitarist/vocalist, and Cecil Bartholomew is a refined guitarist who heads a strings group called Quiet Fire. My fav venues are Le Phar Bleu, Umbrellas, Prickly Bay, and Spice Basket.

  6. Awesome Beth! We too love hearing the live music in Grenada, such talent! Baraccuda is awesome and so it Tammy! La Phar Bleu, Umbrellas and Prickly Bay are great venues 🙂 Thanks for sharing, we miss the great music of Grenada.

  7. Horse and donkey riding in Clabony mountain St. Andrews. Enjoy mountain views at the restaurant; visit the animals at the petting zoo; reach back in time with Arawak museum display; try out a yoga class; bathe in the hot sulphur spring and fly 100 feet down the new zip wire!

  8. Hi June,

    Thanks for the great additions to the list. The only one I’m not all that keen on is the petting zoo – as I don’t like zoos of any sort! But the other items sound great.

    Cheers 🙂

  9. Why are you afraid of walking along the Carenage? It’s such a beautiful area and a nice spot to go for lunch or for a drink. We haven’t been there at night (except during Carnival), but we’ve never had any issues there.

    Check it out 🙂

  10. I’m headed to Grenada pretty soon for a few weeks and I’ve been searching the entire Internet for “local” things to do. Most articles suggested many tourist activities but none was so thorough with regular “hanging out” suggestions. Thank you so much!

    You guys should consider visiting Guyana and doing an article like this for us 🙂

  11. Other than being the most amazing island other than Carriacou in the Caribbean a hike with Telford is a must when you are on the island!

  12. Hi Dariece,
    You have been mentioned in one of Ryan Biddulph’s (Blog from Paradise) posts and I thought I’d give a glance at your blog.
    And I can say, I got a lovely surprise, I love your blogging style.
    Like Ryan, it seems you have not visited my country yet, Seychelles , have you?
    I am blogging in french, but you can check out my blog.
    And if ever you decide to go that way, and need help, knock, I’ll gladly help you organise your trip there.

    Have a great time in Guatemala!


  13. Hi Brigitte!

    Thanks for stopping by. We’re big fans of Ryan as well 🙂 You’re right, we haven’t been to the Seychelles, yet – but we would love to! Thank you for the offer as well to help us out when we decide to go.


  14. You might want to add, the West Indian Brewery in Lance au Pine, and Nimrod’s Rum shop which is a very vibrant local bar serving good and cheap food and the Full Moon beach party in Benji Bay Woburn. Glad you mention Fort Mattew as I have been trying to locate the cellar bar. Thanks for a great list.

  15. Hi Guys,

    I’m heading to Grenada in a couple of months and have been looking for things to do! This list is great, and has filled me with loads of great ideas of what to do when there.

    Cheers 🙂

  16. wow great list. would love to added to it and so sad you didn’t come out with us when you w5here. Gren4Seafaris Powerboat Adventure is the non water tour in Grenada and we have recently been awarded the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame Certificate (only tour to get this in Grenada ). check out or Web and Facebook and reviews and if you think us worthy do please add us.

  17. Don’t for get Coconuts on Grand Anse beach. Great food and live music every Sunday afternoon. Also Grenada Yacht Club, best view for a sunset. Enjoy your sundowner on their verandah.

  18. Check out our brand new place, Brothers Bar and Grill, at Brothers Estate on the Clozier Road outside of Gouyave. Located on an 8 acre working farm overlooking a river, it features wonderful local food, music, and eco-cabins. Enjoy the beautiful drive and lime!! “Where d street meet d elite”
    Thanksgiving Party, Nov 25 – dinner, dancing and drinks!!
    Every WEDS – Golden Oldies Party
    Every SAT night – Local Food
    Every SUN – Breakfast from 7:00 am

  19. my husband and i are bringing our daughters (12 and 17) to Grenada next month for 10 days. we don’t have loads of time sadly, but what MUST we do? my husband will be SCUBA diving some days and I’ll be snorkeling, but we are open to all suggestions! thank you.

  20. Opps, got my Thanksgiving holidays mixed up! The next party at Brothers for Grenada’s Thanksgiving is this Sunday, Oct 25 not Nov 25. Thanks!

  21. 1. Arrange a round-the-island tour, and have lunch at Belmont Estate (mentioned)- Must sees: Bathway/Levera beach and lake, stop at Petit Anse Hotel, Mt Rodney for a drink and a lovely view of the Grenadines
    2. Take a short hike off the popular trails- see Cross Falls/the falls at Mt Horne/sulphur pond at Claboney (designate swim suit for that)
    3. River tubing
    4. Kayaking with Conservation Kayak
    5. If you cannot make Fish Friday at Gouyave, go to D Fish Hook at Tempe, St. George’s on Friday evening for the best grilled fish on island, served with choices of cou-cou chips – only place served, regular fries, or breadfruit chips or garlic, bread, available from mid to late afternoon
    6. Pizza for kids/other meals at Port Louis Marina in lovely waterside environment (live band Saturday evenings)

  22. Hi Meg, my kids grew up on island, and some of their fav places are: La Sagesse Natural Centre – nice restaurant, calm water, rent boogie boards, kayaks or lounge chairs. There’s a fresh water estuary and a little known black sand beach that’s a nice, safe walk through the mangroves to the other side. Easy to spend all day here! Concord Falls (just south of Gouyave) – drive-up access, beautiful falls, possibly the best rum punch on island (that’s saying a lot) and additional falls to hike to. Seven Sisters – a stunning hike, slightly strenuous but not that long (30-45 min) through gorgeous lush farmlands, rainforest and bamboo stands, with a double falls and large swimming holes at the end. Straight out of the movies. As Karen mentioned, Balthazar river tubing is wonderful – my daughter chose this as her 22nd birthday family outing on a recent visit back. Sisters is on the way so you can hit them both. So many choices! If you’re in Grand Anse and just want to watch the sunset after dinner, head up to Quarantine Point for panoramic views. Best of luck and and have a ton of fun!

  23. Hi there. Thanks so much for such a comprehensive list! We are heading there in February and will have this on-hand. Any suggestions for places to stay somewhere besides near St. George’s/Grand Anse? We are going to stay there part of the time but want to mix it up a bit. Thanks so much!

  24. Hi guys,

    Glad that the list was useful 🙂

    You could stay near the north of the island around Laveera Beach, at Petit Anse? Or, you could stay on La Sagesse at the hotel there. Just be aware that there aren’t large grocery stores outside of Grand Anse / St. George’s area, and that the swimming isn’t as good either (it’s good at La Sagesse though). The beaches are still lovely up north and on the east coast, but not ideal for swims.

    I hope this helps!

  25. Hi!

    We’re visiting Grenda for 6 days and your blog and videos have been so awesome! We cannot find the Morne Gazo trailhead, or how to access the sand pools for the life of us. Any tips? Thx!!!

  26. Be sure to sample our local dish Oildown. You can also go cycling with the Grenada Cycling Federation, they can be found on Facebook.

    Love this Blog, keep it alive!

  27. Goats,

    Thanks for the “61 Things to do in Greanada”. It’s been a great guide for our stay in Grenada. We checked out well over half the list and have enjoyed every minute in this beautiful country. Already looking forward to a return trip. Great job Goats.

    Joe and Gina

  28. Too many to choose from! We arrived on the island in time for the Full Moon Party, which was a great introduction to the country. Spent an amazing day at Roger’s on Hog Island. We stayed at a great spot, SeaBreeze Hotel, just across the street from the Grand Anse Spice Market. So, daily cocktails at Esther’s Bar for sunset brought a new highlight every afternoon. Seeing an entire community come together every week for Fish Friday show what this island and these people are all about.

  29. Hi Guys;

    Sorry we missed each other on your return trip to Grenada. Great article with lots of fabulous information. Things I would add – or add onto –
    1. Boot’s Cuisine – fabulous, gourmet Grenadian food. Best to call a day ahead or early in the day if you are coming for dinner, he opens by reservation. Boot’s and Ruby are delightful and the food is incredible – pre fix meal 95 EC on the main road in Woodlands
    2. Patrick’s Homestyle Restaurant – on the lagoon, a tapas style restaurant that serves between 15 and 18 tastes of traditional Grenadian food, cooked perfectly. Karen, the current owner took over after Patrick passed away a number of years ago. Excellent and inexpensive.
    3. BB’s Crabback, at the far end of the Caranage – great view, excellent food and service, it’s always hard to decide what to eat here. Ask if BB is around, he is a great host
    4. Restaurants behind Grand Anse beach in the Marquis plaza – not to be missed if you are on island for a week or more are Carib Sushi – best sushi on the island and is consistently outstanding. a little pricy but worth it and next door, La Boulangerie, a great Italian restaurant with excellent entrees and pizzas. I’m passionate about their Mari and Monte (Shrimp and mushrooms) but everything is good. Great prices – cash only. It should be noted that Porto, an Italian wine bar, Carib Sushi and La Boulangerie are all adjacent to each other and ‘cooperate” so you can get wine from one place and share dinners between the other 2 if you want. Great if you’ve got a crowd of people wanting different kinds of food.

    Adding to what others have said –
    5. Telfor Bedeau – fantastic hiking guide who can show you all the wonders of Grenada either in easy, medium or challenging hikes. Telfor is a wealth of knowledge and his hikes are great. I recommend him to everyone who visits us in Grenada for a wonderful experience. He usually hikes in the Grand Etang area, Seven Sisters fall, and Mount Catherine.
    6. Nimrod’s is a great local bar that a lot of yachty’s hang out at in Woburn. Even better, next door is his mother’s restaurant. Bernadette serves excellent lunches for a great price and if you make arrangements in advance, she will prepare a custom dinner for you. Her specialty is curried lobster – most likely you will be the only one there fore dinner which means outstanding service and good conversation if you want it. It doesn’t get any more local than this – there’s a breadfruit tree growing through the kitchen.
    7. La Sagesse beach and restaurant – Great getaway beach in St. David’s – gorgeous, gently rolling waves, extensive beach and excellent restaurant serving great local food. Been going there for 30 years and have NEVER been disappointed. A ‘Must do’ recommendation for people visiting the island

    And as you’ve said, there’s more and more to love.

  30. GREAT LIST I WAS bORN IN GRENADA ,ILEFT WHEN I WAS SEVEN I was excited to read your list and I would definitely go to most of the places on the list. Absolutely love the last

  31. Hey GOATS,

    My fiance and I just booked our honeymoon in Grenada for this coming August and all of your posts are making us so much more excited! It will be our goal to accomplish at least HALF of this amazing list of things to do!

    Thank you so much for posting!!

    A happy traveler 🙂

  32. Hello

    What an amazing life you have. I hope you don’t mind me asking two questions. My boyfriend is part of the crew on a yacht being delivered from South Africa to Grenada. They will anchor in Hog Island. Do you perhaps know what the internet is like there? They want to go scuba diving once they are there. Would Dive Grenada be the best option?

    Thank you and enjoy adding more memories to your book of memories.

    Kind regards,


  33. Hi!

    Thanks for the message. Wow, what a journey your BF is on! Amazing. Hog Island is beautiful, but there is nothing on it. For internet / wi-fi, he’ll want to go to one of the nearby bars: Prickly Bay, Secret Marina and maybe Whisper Cove has it? Prickly Bay is good though, with plug-ins as well 😉

    The wifi on the island is pretty good.

    For diving, ya, definitely check out Dive Grenada! Nick always dove with them, they’re awesome! Tell Phil we sent you 🙂 Tel.: (1) 473 444 1092
    Cell: (1) 473 414 6229 or you can email: info@divegrenada.com. https://divegrenada.com/index.htm


  34. Thank you for all your informative suggestions. I will be visiting my son who is attending university and I now have my checklist of things to see and do! Best wishes and safe travels to you…

  35. Live in Grenada for two years. Love your videos. Background music should be some reggae, it would give a little more flavor if the island.

  36. HEH NICK,
    Been coming to grenada since 2000 my father has a house at the far end of grand anse,near sea view apartments and well being centre,twice a year for 3 weeks,probablly been more than 30 times and seen almost everything in your video.i do the hash at every opportunity,infact I just got back,coming out for hash 1000 on 25th sept,a week long hash.there is no where else I would rather go,got to know so many grenadians who are lovely and good friend,s

    Finally the WEST INDIES BREWERY COMPANY on the way down lance aux epines road . MARK AND JILL HEATH are both personal friends .this place is adefinate must
    Excellent video from yourselves,keep up the great work.

  37. Earn your degree at St. George’s University! Doctors, veterinarians, and public health professionals are one of Grenada’s most prolific exports. 🙂

  38. Soca would give it more “Grenada” flavour, but it’s hard to find royalty free music, that’s why it’s commonly generic music. Since getting to know some of the artists on the island, we used a couple of local songs. Thanks!

  39. Hi guys! We’re curious what mobile phone service you suggest for when we’re in Grenada.

    Heading there today, and we’re excited to see some of your familiar places in person! We’ll tell Spare hello for ya. 😀

  40. We spent 2 years in Grenada as kids (1980-1982) and although I was only 8 when we returned to the UK there are so many fond memories I carry to this day. I especially remember making a campfire with my Dad and Sister on Levera Beach, which was just a short distance from our home in Bathway. My wife and I have only recently become travel bloggers and we are planning to make Grenada one of our first destinations in 2018. We are signed up to a couple of house sitting sites and we are keeping our fingers crossed for Grenada opportunities.

    Super post by the way; a worthy read for anyone keen on visiting the “Spice Island”.

  41. Hello! I’ll be spending this July in Grenada and I was wondering if there are any stables that offer horse back riding? I haven’t been able to find much information online. Thanks!

  42. Nice article. Thanks for taking the time to write/make it, helped my partner and family look at what we want to do when we go in November this year.

  43. Great blog to see so many aspects of Grenada before our trip in a couple of weeks.

    I have been to most islands n the Caribean but never Grenada.

    We will be flipping a coin to either come to Grenada or St. Lucia to stay near the pitons that we love.

    Keep up the great blog.


  44. You guys are amazing, thank you so much for all this helpful information. I had to do a presentation for school on what I wanted to do on my dream vacation. All the information was super helpful and gave me a better idea of what to put in the presentation and what I want to do when I actually go there.

  45. I am so glad I found this! My husband and i are moving here for med school, and I wont be able to get a job, so this list will become my Must Complete list before I move back to the states. This move will be really difficult, but hopefully with this it will be amazing!

  46. So my nephew is going to medical school in Grenada. What are some of the things these kids find hard to get or should bring plenty of when they get there.
    My Army experience was different but arriving some places far from the US you might forget the little things.

  47. Having been to Grenada 17 times we have done many of these wonderful adventures. You have forgotten to mention that the people of Grenada are the friendliest people that you will ever find. We have many many friends there and wish the best for this island.

  48. How quickly did you get use to driving on the left side of the road? Do recommend a first time visitor getting a rental to enjoy the flexibility of getting around

  49. The roads in Grenada are narrow and if you’re from the USA or Canada, then not only will narrow roads be different, but so will driving on the “wrong” side of the road. It doesn’t take long getting used to driving on the left, and whether or not you want to rent a car just depends on how comfortable you are driving in another country. Having your own wheels in Grenada is the best way to explore, however. You could always spend a few days with a driver, tour, or taking the bus and see what you think.

  50. Thanks for this list! My husband and I are headed there next week for 5 days. It’s a last minute trip so unfortunately we don’t have that much time! From visiting your blog it looks like we may be going back again for a longer stay! You mentioned renting a car to see the island. Any suggestions on a good itinerary to pack in a full day? Or would it be best with a guide? We’ve rented cars on islands before but since this trip is last minute we haven’t had a lot of time to research. Thanks!!

  51. Thank you very much for a very informative post about the best things to do in Grenada. We were planning to explore this gorgeous island for 10 days, but after reading your post we think it is not enough! I guess we will go for at least 2 weeks, so we can visit the neaby island, too. Thanks! Martina x x.
