8. Island Tours

Private Tours
Maybe you have a special interest:
Photography? – Nature / Botany -Industrial archaeology……

Or maybe you want to see the standard sights, but a different mix from the standard tours. You might want to move at your own pace, to avoid the crowd, or to bring your own crowd. Or you might not be sure how long you want to be out for, and want the option of cutting the day short and going back home. Useful if you have children.


Then hire a vehicle with a driver.

Set your own agenda, or make it up as you go along.
You pay by the hour, not per person, for the vehicle;
** You are liable for any admission fees & meals en route.**
Min. time: normally 4 hours;
Available any day, given notice, but bear in mind that many sites are shut at weekends.

Fish Friday
(Nearly) every Friday evening, the north-western fishing village of Gouyave lets its hair down and turns over a street (and a bit more) to fish stalls.

fish-friday-grenada

Under canvas, you can browse among the evening’s catch, served up in a variety of ways: fried fish, grilled fish, BBQ fish, fish balls, fish loaf, fish cakes, fish pies, fish quiche, fish pizza, fish pockets, fish rissoles, fish poached in garlic, fish kebabs, lobster (in season), lambie and more.

There is usually live entertainment: drummers or a steel band. It was never designed for tourists, though plenty go. You see ‘real Grenada’; no frills, but scrupulously clean and hugely welcoming. A little town winding down for the weekend; people-watching, ‘liming’. The street is narrow and uneven, and there is not always seating for all. It fills up. This gives it authenticity, and intimacy.

Most guests leave with the feeling that they have experienced a slice of ‘real’ Grenada, and are often almost overwhelmed by the hospitality of the locals. It is enjoyed by just about everyone.

Our List of Recommended Taxi Drivers:

1./ Lennox – 414-2377
2./ Bonston – 407-3577

9. Conservation Kayak

They are located on Grenada’s south west coast, only a 10 minute drive from Grand Anse. Based at Whisper Cove Marina in Woburn Bay, close to the picturesque, uninhabited Hog Island, the perfect setting for a kayak tour!

Every trip is its’ own adventure and each one is different. You can paddle out to a deserted island, see a diverse array of the beautiful flora and fauna found in Grenada and, if you’re feeling up for it, swim in the warm, blue sea. As you glide amongst the coral reefs and mangroves you will soon forget what time it is and you’ll begin to feel at one with nature. Back on the beach, lunch, consisting of freshly prepared local specialities, has been set out for you. Sitting back with a refreshing drink you will soon realise that this is how to relax and have fun in Grenada.

This is the easiest waterfall to get to and the most “touristy”.

Concord Falls

The trip now plays an essential role in Grenada’s effort to conserve the second largest population of nesting leatherbacks in the Caribbean.
