There are many reasons to book Grenada holidays; read on to discover some of the best…
Known as the Spice Island for its production of a rack full of spices, Grenada is kissed by the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea. To the south of the chain of islands that make up the region, and less developed than near neighbours such as Barbados, Grenada has retained an authentic feel while establishing itself as an island for elite holidays in the sun.
Hotels here are low-rise and blend into the palm-fringed coastline. Yet trendy interiors and some of the best resort restaurants in the Caribbean remind guests that no expense has been spared in creating a truly luxurious getaway from everyday life.
In Grenada, all-inclusive holidays are extremely popular and some of the best hotels on the island offer all-in packages. However, other hotels offer accommodation on a room-only or bed-and-breakfast basis, meaning you can explore the wide range of excellent local restaurants during your stay. If you are on a tight budget, you can find cheap holidays to Grenada in one of the resorts that offer self-catering holidays, stocking up on all your kitchen essentials at local markets and stores.
Holidays in Grenada are mostly taken in the pocket of exclusive resorts in the south west of the island, where stunning beaches such as Grand Anse and Tamarind Bay offer lazy days on sugar-white sands. The nearby capital of St George’s – one of the most charming in the entire Caribbean region – is also a great place to unpack your holiday wardrobe.
If you are looking for a relaxed and opulent sunshine holiday, Grenada could be your dream destination.

The average daily temperature in Grenada never veers from a hot 30C – whatever the month. However, in the Caribbean, the temperature is not the only indicator of great holiday weather. The driest and least humid season in Grenada runs between January and May, which is also the busiest time for tourism. July-October is the wettest and most humid time, with October usually experiencing the peak of wet, sticky and stormy weather.
Between Christmas and April, holiday prices are generally higher so consider a break in May or even June if you are looking for hot, dry weather and a cheap deal.
The Spice Island knows how to throw a great party; will your visit coincide with one of these annual events?
Annual Grenada Sailing Festival; January: The action on the waves around Port Louis Marina reaches fever pitch in January during this well-attended annual festival. Races and post-finish-line celebrations make life in St George’s extra lively around this time.
Grenada Drum Festival; May: Take a scenic drive across the island and head to Tivoli, home to the Tivoli Drummers and venue for this annual event. This cultural feast features dancing, food, art, and, of course, plenty of traditional drumming.
Grenada Carnival; August: Also known as Spicemas, this annual party on the streets of St George’s is gloriously colourful and carefree. Get down to the Calypso beat and enjoy the biggest and best cultural event in Grenada.
If you can tear yourself away from the pool or the beach, Grenada offers a fine selection of things to see and do…
Grown-up families: Fantastic dive sites pepper the world under the waves around Grenada. The haunting figures of the Underwater Sculpture Park, which are morphing into artificial reefs, are otherworldly; a must-see if you like to explore beneath the surface of the Caribbean.
Active types: Through rainforest and past waterfalls, Grenada has some of the most attractive hiking trails in the region. From an easy 15-minute amble to a three-hour mountain hike, there is a walk to suit your fitness level and sense of adventure.
Shopping: Take a little bit of Grenada home with you when you go shopping for nutmeg, hand-printed fabrics or local rum. St George’s is a great place to sniff out a bargain.
