Saint George’s Grenada

Welcome to Saint George’s Grenada

Saint George’s in the south-western part of the island is the capital of Grenada, is a picturesque town with Old Georgian residential homes and businesses lining the hillside of an old volcano crater. With its mix of fragrant spice markets, lush plantations, nature reserves, and deserted tropical beaches, Grenada is easily one of the Caribbean’s most idyllic destinations. Its beautiful horseshoe-shaped harbor and yacht lagoon are unforgettable sights, and the town is a favorite intermediate stop for cruise lines from all over the world. Rich in English, French, and West Indian history, St. George’s is filled with beautiful examples of French and British Colonial architecture, museums, and churches. A handful of these sights still show clearly the destruction that Hurricane Ivan left when it passed through several years ago.

There are numerous take-out and higher-end restaurants featuring a variety of local and international cuisines. While the traditional intercontinental dining is available, you won’t want to miss the creative local cuisine which includes Roti and Oil Down. Oil Down, Grenada’s national dish a melting pot of its cultural history. The iconic, one-pot stew is a staple for locals, featured at festivals, parties, and gatherings within the community. It’s a simple, comforting dish that’s packed full of flavor with salted meat, chicken or fish, dumplings, coconut milk, turmeric, vegetables, and breadfruit as the main ingredients. Nutmeg ice cream is another must-not-miss treat.

Saint George's Annandale Waterfall

Outdoor enthusiasts have the opportunity to experience the real essence of St. George’s, hiking, and Diving abound. Visit Annandale Falls and immerse yourself in tranquility following a short hike through the lush rainforest. The small waterfall, which cascades into a shallow rock pool, is surrounded by rocks covered by patches of green vegetation. A manmade platform on the edge of the pool makes an excellent spot for taking pictures. Along the way, find locals selling souvenirs, vibrantly colored flowers, and fruit growing among the vegetation.

If you’re looking for beautiful beaches, you don’t have to go far from the capital, Saint George; in the south-western part of the island, you find the most stunning locations, like the Grand Anse Beach, considered by many to be one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world. And if this 3 km of the beach isn’t enough, there are other stretches along the coasts of the Lance aux Épines peninsula.

The waters around Grenada support a vibrant array of sea life. Exploring the reefs just off the coast, snorkelers and scuba divers are treated to colorful tropical fish and other sea life. The Grenada Underwater Sculpture Park as it is known is home to several of the famous underwater sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor sculptor’s creations and is the world’s first underwater sculpture park. Rentals are available for sailing, parasailing, diving, kayaking, windsurfing, and snorkeling to further explore the beautiful Caribbean waters surrounding the island.

The National Museum, a popular option for things to do in St. George’s, is within walking distance from the cruise ship terminal and the carnage. Once you visit The National Museum, you’ll step into the island’s history, from the time of the Carib and Arawak, through the era of the European settlement, up to the modern-day. This small but interesting museum is housed in a multifaceted building; over the years, it served as a prison, barracks, and the first hotel in Grenada.

Grenada is on its own a spectacular place to visit, with its spicy nature, rugged and remarkable terrain, and vibrant people. The opportunity to be able to travel to the island for more than just sunny shores and beautiful stretches of beach is something that should not be overlooked, which is something the thousands of people who have already traveled to see the underwater sculpture park in the island’s waters have already found out.
