Why go?

Book flights to Grenada and pack your holiday wardrobe to match one of the most stylish and exclusive islands in the Caribbean...

With everything from historic, colonial cities to tropical rainforest and stunning, palm-lined beaches, it's an idyllic destination for any holiday.
St George's is the capital and largest city of Grenada and is widely regarded as the Caribbean's most beautiful capital. Around its horseshoe shaped harbour, the country's colonial past is evident in the ornate pastel-coloured buildings that line the narrow streets.

Grenada has a number of other urban areas worth visiting, including Sauteurs in the north and Grenville on the east coast. Travelling beyond the island's cities, visitors can delve into a scenic world, rich with vegetation, varied terrain and exotic wildlife.

Just outside St George's is Annandale Falls, one of many waterfalls found across the islands and a particularly idyllic spot with a grotto and natural pool ideal for swimming. Mount Carmell, the highest in Grenada, Seven Sister and Concord Waterfalls are among the other noted waterfalls in the nation.

Further inland, Grand Etang National Park and Forest Reserve is Grenada's top hiking area, found high up in the mountains and amidst the flora and fauna of the country's rainforest. Its setting makes it perfect for short strolls and intense treks alike and it's the place to go for a glimpse of Grenada's famous mahogany trees and unique animal species.

How to get there

This Caribbean gem enjoys direct flights from the UK from London's Gatwick airport...

Both British Airways and Virgin Atlantic offer flights several times weekly into the island taking around 11 hours with a stop off in another island such as St Lucia.  Connecting flights to Gatwick are available from several UK departure points.

If the direct options do not suit, the only real alternative is to fly via the USA through Miami on American Airlines.

Getting to and from the airport

Don't waste one moment when you land on your flight to Grenada. Find out how to get to and from the airport quickly and easily...

Grenada flights land at St George's Maurice Bishop International Airport (GND), previously Point Salines International Airport, on the south-western tip of the island. The sole airport on Grenada, it serves all air traffic to the country, including year round flights direct from the UK and USA.

Travelling onwards, visitors can use taxi cabs, car rental or local bus services, the most common form of transportation, to journey around the island. A taxi from the airport to hotels around Grand Anse Bay will cost around 40 East Caribbean dollars or 16 US dollars (both are accepted; it's the equivalent of around £10). This is a 10-minute journey from the airport; some resorts are much further away. Bus services are much cheaper but much slower, and taxis will, of course, cost more.

Book car hire in Grenada to drive to your hotel and then use your vehicle to see more of the island during your holiday.

Grenada's sister islands, including Carriacou and Petit Martinique, are also easily accessible via ferry. Ferries sail regularly from the port in St George's.

Where to stay

Offering visitors the chance to experience sea, city and scenic beauty in one idyllic setting, Grenada is a Caribbean paradise...

A tourist hotspot with an array of shops and restaurants, St George's is also a perfect place to sample the local Grenadian cuisine. A nod to the country's African roots and characterised by hot, peppery flavours, the food pays testament to Grenada's reputation as the Spice Island for its role in the trade of nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, cloves and ginger across the globe. There are a few hotels in St George's. Stay here for a unique taste of this spicy island.

With clear blue seas and reefs abundant with sea life, Grenada is also an excellent destination for diving, snorkelling and any beach-based holiday. In particular, there is the famous Grand Anse Beach at the centre of St George's tourist area, a spot renowned for turtle watching. Hotels around Grand Anse are mostly geared towards the luxury end of the market. Expect the very best in hospitality and prices that reflect the exclusive experience.

Other first-class beaches on the island include the black sands of Grenada's Bathway Beach and Black Bay Beach and La Sagesse Bay and Nature Centre in St David's, as well as Tyrrel Bay on nearby Carriacou, Grenada's second island.

Many wonderful beachside hotels, villas and lodges dot the edges of these sun-soaked islands, where soft sands are never far away. Cheaper guesthouses are available for tighter budgets.
