During holidays in Grenada, visitors can visit the island’s historic attractions such as the Grenada National Museum; Fort George and Fort Frederick; West Indies Cricket Heritage Centre; River Antoine Rum Distillery, the oldest rum distillery in the western hemisphere; and the Dougladston Estate, the oldest spice plantation in Grenada.

Grenada boasts an array of breathtaking natural attractions including the famous Grand Anse Beach; Mount St. Catherine, the island’s highest peak,; Grand Etang Nature Reserve that features a stunning crater lake; Seven Sister Waterfalls and the highest waterfall in Grenada, Mt. Carmel Waterfall; the Belmont Estate, a former 17th century plantation and base for the Grenada Chocolate Company products; the tropical Bay Gardens; and the stunning Underwater Sculpture Park.
