Grenada Travel and Tours

HOME / Tours by Country / Grenada Travel and Tours

The island nation of Grenada in the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean together with the islands of Carriacou and Petite Martinique. All belong together geographically to the archipelago of the Grenadines. The total area of ​​the island state is 344 km². We offer a wide range of Grenada Travel and Tours and other Caribbean Islands.

Most residents live on the main island of Grenada, primarily in the capital St. George’s, as well as in the cities Grenville and Gouyave. The official language is English.

The island is mountainous, especially in the inner part. The highest mountain is Mount St. Catherine with a height of 840 m.

Tourism is now the main industry. Especially in the south west of Grenada is the tourist centre. There are many different accommodation options from fancy hotels, inns and guest houses through to apartments. The enchanting coast of Grenada and its beautiful beaches also attract many cruise ships.

In and around the capital St. George’s around 33,000 people live. The city is located in the beautiful scenery of the slopes, which are located around a natural u-shaped harbor bay. The visitor is optically transferred to the colonial era.

The image of the city is architecturally determined by its French and British colonial era. On the hills of the city there are two fortresses, which are worth seeing: the Fort George and Fort Frederick. Of these, one has a wonderful view over the city and the bay. Other attractions include the Church of St. Andrews, the National Museum and the harbor road.

Other tourist resorts are Grand Anse, Lance Aux Epines and Point Salines. The so-called eco-tourism is mainly distributed in the municipalities of Saint David and Saint John.

Trimmed with 45 beaches and countless secluded coves, Grenada’s popularity has grown as travellers increasingly seek exotic, friendly vacation destinations. Contact us now for more info on Grenada Travel and Tours.

Important: We always advise you to check any travel advice for Latin America, before planning any trips.

When to go

It’s a question of weighing up both the weather and the cost. Weather-wise, the high-season winter months – January to April – are best, as it’s driest and least humid then. The worst months are September and October, the peak of the hurricane season

Though you’d be very unlucky to coincide with a hurricane, late summer/early autumn is the wettest time of year, and the period when you’re most likely to be hit by storms.

Most attractions are conveniently concentrated in the island’s south-west corner, so few journeys take more than 15 minutes.

 

However, price-wise, accommodation rates are about a third higher mid-December to April than at other times of year, and in the summer and autumn hotels often offer additional financial enticements, such as free nights if you stay for a week or longer.

Factoring in the weather and cost, arguably the best times to travel are May and June. Compared with the preceding months, the weather is often nearly as good then, while hotel and villa rates are much more affordable.

 

In terms of busyness, bear in mind that the island is very quiet in the northern hemisphere autumn, particularly in September, when some hotels close. The liveliest time, in terms of local life, is early August, when the island parties like mad during the carnival.
