Travel to Grenada
The three islands of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique are located in the eastern Caribbean, south of the Winward Islands and 100 miles north of Venezuela. Neighbouring islands St. Vincent and the Grenadines lie to the north and Trinidad and Tobago lie to the South.
It's not called the Spice Island for nothing; you really can smell the nutmeg in the air. Grenada’s islands feature some of the most diverse terrains in the Caribbean, from crater lakes and green rainforests to sun-kissed beaches and unspoilt underwater ecosystems. Grenada has the perfect balance of adventure and romance. On this picturesque and petite island, you can go for a swim in the crystal clear waters off Grand Anse Beach in the morning and easily trek through ancient rainforests en route to the dramatic Seven Sisters Waterfalls in the afternoon.
The English-speaking nation has some of the friendliest people in the Caribbean, making it very easy to encounter all aspects of Grenada's vibrant culture and hospitality.
Grenada is accessible from major international cities including Miami, New York, Atlanta, Toronto, London, Frankfurt, Caracas, and the Caribbean.
International flights stop at the Maurice Bishop International Airport, and visitors wishing to continue on to the sister isle of Carriacou have a short trip by inter-island charter to Lauriston Airport.
Additionally, Osprey Lines run a ferry that departs from the Carenage in St. George's. Cruise ships serving the Caribbean islands depart from Florida and Puerto Rico.
If you are sailing into Grenada there are a variety of marinas where you can clear immigration and customs, as well as dock and purchase supplies. Anchorage services are available at most inlets and bays.
Despite its proximity to the equator, Grenada maintains highly enjoyable weather throughout the year. Temperatures typically range from 24 to 30 C (75 to 85 F) due in part to the trade winds that gently cool the islands during the dry season, from October to March.
