How to get to Grenada
Ships that dock in popular Melville Street Cruise Terminal can easily access most of St. George’s on foot, since the exit to this port empties directly into downtown. Smaller ships berth at the Carenage, which is also close to a number of waterfront shops and restaurants. Though far less visited compared to Melville Street, its considered by some to be the most picturesque part of St. George’s.
One Day in Grenada
Water-lovers can head out early to nearby Grand Anse Beach. The world-famous shores of this luxe destination are just a ten-minute taxi ride from port. Active travelers can kayak, parasail, windsurf or snorkel right from the beach’s shore. The more adventurous can hire a guide at one of the local dive shops and head to Moliniere Point, about 25 minutes north of St. George’s for a truly unique experience. Manmade underwater sculpture gardens make this excursion unlike snorkeling anywhere else.
Visitors who prefer to get out of town can hire a driver and travel through Grenada’s scenic interior. Popular stops include Grand Etang Lake and Annandale Falls, as well as a tour of a local spice plantation to sample homegrown nutmeg and tropical fruits. Afterwards, return to St. George’s for a visit to Market Square, the bustling bazaar where farmers and vendors sell their wares.
