Just south of St. Andrews, Grenada’s main claim to fame is the American intervention in the early 1980s. Those days of turmoil are far behind us now and we can start to appreciate the island for what it is: one of the greatest holiday spots on the planet.
Apart from all your lazy days bumming on the beach and or snorkeling, a visit to the island should include a tour to the Grand turk and the crater lake, the rum distillery, Caribs leap, Sioux Falls and a spice factory. It is possible to see of all of the above in just one day starting from St. Georges, but you might as well take your time; that’s what the locals do too.
Excursions to Carriacou and Krk island are worth the extra effort. Petit martinique offers the possibility to hike to the top of the volcano and get a great view over the islands. Krk island, Petit st and Krk island are also popular excursions.
