The Best of Grenada





Here in our humble opinion are our best bits of Grenada


BEST ANCHORAGE TO BE…


- IN A STORM.
Port Egmont – Great holding and completely landlocked.

- NEAR A BAR.
Prickly Bay – Both http://www.debigfish.com/ and http://www.pricklybaymarina.com/ were firm favourites with us especially for their happy hour deals. 3 beers for 10ec you can’t go wrong.

- IN A GOOD LOCATION.
St Georges – Now that we have found that there is good holding (after snorkeling around for an hour) we like it there, the water is clear and its easy distance to town or to Grand Anse beach.
Prickly Bay – Was also a good location, it was within walking distance of a big supermarket if you could stand the heat. But the busses were also cheap and easy.

BEST BEACHES
Grenada, although not particularly known for its beaches does have some real gems. Our favouites include Grand Anse Beach, Magazine Beach, Calabash Beach, La Sagesse Beach, Levera Beach and Petite Anse. Check out http://www.grenada-beaches.com/

BEST SNORKELLING
There are a few good places to snorkel in Grenada but we particularly like the area in and around the underwater sculpture park http://www.underwatersculpture.com/ at Moliniere Point. Also the beach at Magazine Bay by the Aquarium Resturant offers good snorkeling too.

BEST BAR
See best anchorage to be near a bar both http://www.debigfish.com/ and http://www.pricklybaymarina.com/ are great bars with live music and great happy hour prices.

BEST RESTURANT
This is a tricky one, so I think we can only recommend that the following are places that we have enjoyed. http://www.lasagesse.com/, http://www.petiteanse.com/, http://www.aquarium-grenada.com/

BEST ROTI
The roti’s at Nimrods in Clarks Court Bay are pretty darn good but we also like the roti at B’s Roti shop at the Carenage in St Georges and in the IGA shopping mall at Grand Anse.

BEST WATERFALL
Our all time favourite waterfall is without a doubt Concord Falls. It may be a common choice but if you get there late in the day when there are no cruise ships in, you can have the place to yourself ducking and diving in and out of the fall. www.grenadaexplorer.com/waterfalls.htm

BEST WALK
There are lots of wonderful walks in Grenada. We particularly liked the walk to the Seven Sisters waterfall. But if you like walking and exploring new places why not try a Hash, which is a hike through forest, beaches, jungle, roads or parks with a group of self proclaimed drinkers with a running problem! check it out http://www.grenadahash.com/

BEST SUPERMARKET
IGA has a good selection of imported luxury items but Foodland is good for local items and produce.
