Things to do in Grenada
Gouyave Nutmeg Factory & Dougladston Estate: These spice-related destinations are considered “must-do”s on a vacation to the “Spice Islands”! At the Gouyave Nutmeg Factory, see how one of the island’s biggest imports is prepared. The Dougladston Estate is a working museum that features spices as well and is one of the old plantation houses from when the spice trade was run by slaves. Enjoy these stops to best understand the history of the island.
Forts: On your Grenada vacation, you may be hard pressed to avoid forts but don’t try- these tourist attractions offer one of a kind photo opportunities and memories! Enjoy Fort George’s which is above St. George’s with beautiful view of the town and the Carenage, a beautiful bay. Fort Frederick is high above the sea with astonishing views of St. George’s, Grand Anse, Grand Etang and the southern part of the island.
Grenada Beaches and Underwater Sculptures: A Grenada vacation package simply must include time at the glorious beaches and in Grenada’s blue seas. Consider snorkeling or SCUBAing through Grenada’s Underwater Sculptures Park which is world-famous work by Jason de Caires Taylor. The sculptures, aside from being one of a kind and fascinating, work as fake reefs to draw fish and other wildlife and protecting real reefs.
