It is the beauty of the islands beaches that make Grenada holidays a popular attraction. Grenada has a typically Caribbean climate, with average temperatures hitting approximately 30 degrees Celsius all year round, however the humidity levels are higher between June & November meaning rainfall is more likely during these months so many visitors prefer to go on holiday to Grenada in the dryer season between December & May.
Beaches are the centre point of Grenada holidays so visit one of the islands 45 beaches. Grand Anse beach is the most popular offering a two mile stretch of white sand. Beyond relaxing on the beach, or walking along it there are many water sports available. Snorkelling & diving are particularly popular on Grenada holidays, with the colourful coral and marine life as exciting as can be seen anywhere in the Caribbean. Other water sports include kayaking, sailing or even taking a fishing charter.

Another popular excursion for visitors on Grenada holidays is a visit to the island’s capital of St George’s.
