Family Holidays in Grenada

Grenada for families

Grenada isn't the first Caribbean destination to come to mind when you're planning a family holiday, but if you're looking for somewhere that's peaceful, beautiful and home to a wide selection of natural attractions, this is the place for you and your kids.

The Isle of Spice boasts breathtaking sandy beaches, vast areas of jungle that are home to all manner of exotic creatures, and several fascinating historical sites. Added to all of this are Grenada's outstanding resorts, many of which cater well for families.

If you've got older children or teenagers who enjoy being active on family breaks, you won't be short of fun things to try together. Snorkelling, sailing and kayaking are a few of your options around the coast, while you can also head inland on a jeep safari, or explore under your own steam by following one of the many hiking trails.

To add an educational slant to your holiday in Grenada, head to the island's National Museum in St George, where you can view exhibits relating to everything from its plantations to the fishing industry. This is a fantastic introduction to Grenada's varied and interesting heritage.

Introduce kids to exotic wildlife

The exciting wildlife that Grenada is home to is bound to capture the attention of youngsters, with plenty to see both in the forests and underwater. One of the best ways to enjoy time together is to go on an excursion into one of the national parks - Grand Etang and Levera are two of the most popular places to head to.

Within their forests, you can spot the likes of Mona monkeys, opossums, red-necked pigeons and purple-throated caribs, while you should also keep your eyes peeled for colourful hummingbirds flitting from place to place. Levera National Park features a large lagoon and mangrove swamp, where herons, snipes and a host of other wading birds can be spotted.

However, it isn't only the wildlife that's fascinating in Grenada, but also its flora. There are some incredible plants that grow naturally on this island, including rare orchids, towering mahogany trees, exotic giant palms and fragrant nutmeg, cocoa and cinnamon trees.

Just offshore, meanwhile, are wonderful coral reefs that are teeming with life. Children and parents alike can marvel at the colourful fish that flit between the corals, or be amazed if they are lucky enough to see an eagle ray or turtle gliding by while they're snorkelling. For older children, having a go at scuba diving is another option.

Top family attractions

Undoubtedly one of the best things about a holiday in Grenada for families is the island's pristine sandy beaches, which are the perfect places for children to play and for mum and dad to relax. Many of the hotels are located within easy reach of at least one strip of sand (if not more), so you will never have far to go for a day at the seaside.

Kids can build sandcastles, frolick in the warm Caribbean Sea and even get involved in games like beach cricket or volleyball. Parents can join in with all of these activities, or simply keep a watchful eye on their youngsters while soaking up the sun.

Away from the beach, a trip to the Belmont Estate is a must for families. This working plantation produces cocoa and you can learn all about the chocolate-making process on a visit here, although spices including cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg are also cultivated. What's more, the estate is home to a goat farm, in addition to looking after many other animals. Little ones will love getting a close look at parrots, monkeys and tortoises, among other creatures.

Family-friendly hotels in Grenada

There are numerous excellent family-friendly hotels in Grenada that boast a range of facilities and run dedicated children's clubs to keep your kids busy for at least a few hours each day. The majority of the island's resorts have more than one swimming pool, with some of them also featuring spa facilities, lazy rivers, and plenty more besides.

If you've got active kids, check what water sports are on offer, as many of the hotels have their own water sport centres where you can try things like hobie-cat sailing, snorkelling and kayaking. One resort that's great for children is the Grenadian by Rex Resort with one of the island's most popular kids' club.

In the evenings, make the most of the varied entertainment at your chosen resort (most offer some type of spectacle for you to enjoy) - often this takes the form of vibrant Caribbean shows that will introduce you and the kids to another side of Grenada during your stay.
