Some islands work hard to accomplish their wow factor, while for others it just happens. Gracefully set in the turquoise waters of the Caribbean’s southeast corner, the captivating island of Grenada is the true meaning of the word ‘paradise’.
Unspoilt forests and pristine beaches make Grenada even more enchanting than its better-known neighbours. Persian green hillsides sprawl alongside the cobalt sea, merging with the dazzling white beaches of low-slung palms, their gilded boughs reaching out to the creamy sand below. Tiny estuaries carrying crystal-clear water reflects the towering ferns, pushing up towards whipped-cream blue skies.
Moving inland, the Grand Etang Forest Reserve is reminiscent of Henri Rousseau’s art, with rainforests covering rugged peaks of tropical fauna.
Be sure to visit the weekly ‘Fish Friday’ festival in Gouyave, which offers a divine taste of authentic Caribbean and partying in a vibrant haze of reggae, rum and charming locals.
