Jamboulay Island Tour
Duration: Full Day
Join us for the most dynamic and activity packed tour you could find in Grenada! Mixing the best of adventure, discovery, nature, history and relaxation, this is an excursion for all those ambitious explorers that want to make the most of their time during their Mauritius holidays and do a bit of everything in one single full day excursion!
We begin this adventure-packed tour with a dip at the Concord Waterfalls, an incredible succession of not one but 3 wonderful waterfalls situated on the edge of the forest reserve and right at the western side o the island, where the water is the most crystalline clear and icy cold. Of the three amazing waterfalls here at Concord Falls, the first one is the most readily accessible with a paved road that leading directly all the way up to it. The second waterfall is the biggest and tallest and can be reached after an energising 45 minute hike through a wonderful trail that goes past a nutmeg plantation. With all the panoramic views to be enjoyed as you make your way up, this trail will be a real treat for all hikers. And our third and last waterfall is a little off the beaten track which means you’ll soon find yourself amidst the wildest and most buoyant of Grenadian nature.
We continue our adventure with a drive along the western coast that will take us all the way to the famous fishing village of Gouyave. In this quaint little fishing town you will encounter a picturesque landscape with a nutmeg and spice processing stations. This village is widely known in Grenada as the town that never sleeps as more fish are caught here than anywhere else on the island. Some Gouyave fishermen have even been awarded medals by her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and if you’re lucky enough to take this excursion on a Fish Friday you will have the chance to sample some of the best freshly caught fish treats: grilled, fried, steamed or cooked they all result in the most mouth watering Grenada seafood you could imagine.
We follow this with a drive up north to visit the area known as “The Carib’s Leap” and go to the region’s most idyllic place to eat when visiting the north of the island. At the restaurant here you will have a delicious lunch consisting of the most mouth watering local and international dishes such as the Callaloo Soup, Chicken Roti, Lambi (Conch) in Creole Sauce; all accompanied by a selection of refreshing cocktails, smoothies and fruit juices.
And after you’ve had some time to relax and re-charge your energies from the day’s thrilling activities we continue our journey towards our next stop at the River Antoine Rum Distillery. Here you’ll be visiting Grenada’s oldest rum factory, dating back to as far as 1785 and also standing as the Caribbean’s oldest functioning water-propelled distillery. This is a unique factory that runs all year round and you’ll be amazed at how little the process of making rum has changed through the years as they follow the same methods from generations of tradition. You will not be leaving without sampling the delicious ‘Rivers’ rum.
We then continue our journey as we pass through the windward town of Grenville, the second largest city in Grenada after St George and also the capital of the island’s largest Parish of St Andrews. From here we’ll proceed towards our last and final stop at the Grand Etang Lake. This breathtaking lake is situated in the island’s most popular area for hiking and trekking while being surrounded by Grenada’s most enchanting forest reserve. The lake itself fills the crater of one of the dormant volcanoes along Grenada’s mountainous spine and constitutes the forest’s main attraction and focal point. Gaze in admiration at the beauty dismantling before you and make sure to photograph these exceptional landscapes so that this experience can be forever kept and treasured.
After this final and invigorating stop you can now sit back and enjoy the ride back as you take in the last views of the amazing vegetation of the Grand Etang Rainforest. This surely is the perfect way to end a thrilling day of adventure with a revitalising panoramic drive back to your hotel.
