Grenada is one of the lesser developed islands in the Caribbean, where you can hike through protected forests in the mountains and swim through marine protected areas in the oceans. Brightsun Travel offers exclusive holidays to Grenada, in this most unspoilt part of the Caribbean. As well as magnificent turquoise coastlines, Grenada boasts a colourful capital city and a lush green interior. St George’s, the island’s capital, is one of the prettiest in the region, with colourful Georgian buildings, old French forts and a bustling market square. Many beaches surrounding St George’s, such as Grand Anse, have resorts that would suit even the very budget conscious traveller, where you can happily explore the island’s waters, mountains and forests. Brightsun Travel has a range of cheap holidays to Grenada, in the best resorts along the island’s breathtaking coast, where you can watch the sun set over some iconic Caribbean scenery. And when you are ready to tear yourself away from the island’s inviting beaches, this so called Spice Island has more than just forests to tempt you into its lush green hills.
Grenada is famous for its spice plantations, including nutmeg and cocoa, and what better way to start your journey away from the beach with a chocolate tasting at the Belmont Estate, a spice and cocoa plantation dating back hundreds of years. Continue into the green hills and you will find breathtaking pockets of protected wild rainforest that agriculture hasn't reached, where steep mountains protect Grenada’s raw natural beauty. The Grand Etang National Park is one of the most biologically rich remaining wild forests of the Caribbean. The park offers incredible hiking trails and a magical lake filling the crater of Grenada’s extinct volcano. It also contains beautiful waterfalls such as the Honeymoon Falls, where the name says it all. Another protected area offering temptations away from Grenada’s sandy shores, is the Marine Protected Area to the south of the island, famous for an underwater sculpture park, where you can dive between statues covered in marine life. Contact Brightsun Travel for a range of fantastic holidays to Grenada, and experience the fragrant side of the Caribbean.
