Family-Friendly Holidays in Grenada

There is nowhere better to soak up the sun than in the Caribbean. And if you want to experience glorious climate, pristine beaches, breathtaking landscapes, rich culture, unique history and scrumptious cuisine, Grenada should definitely be part of your itinerary.

Although a relatively small island (you can be hiking through the rainforest in the morning and be on the beach by the afternoon), this island offers many amenities, including Grenada hotels that offer great facilities and service. However, what seems to set this island apart from its sister islands is the lack of commercialisation and tourism, making the island less crowded and more laid-back. Listed below are our reasons why this spice island is the perfect place for your family vacation.

A chocolate lover's dream

If you have always wanted to see wall-to-wall chocolate, a visit to the Grenada Chocolate Company is a must. Chocolate lovers will find this island to be sheer paradise, and will no doubt be eager to take some samples back to their Grenada hotels. Founded in 1999, the Chocolate Company produces incredible organic dark chocolate using the island's world-famous cocoa beans. Nestled in lush cocoa groves in the pristine rainforest, its award-winning chocolate has a unique and complex flavour. Produced only in small batches and using the freshest of ingredients, this chocolate is luxurious, rich, and would satisfy the most nitpicky of chocolate addicts. Be sure to visit the gift shop after the tour for a few (or a few dozen) bars to take home. Trust us, you will want to stock up. After all, the London Guardian called them 'probably the best chocolate in the world'.

Grand Etang National Park

Despite the luxury and comfort of Grenada hotels, there's probably nothing kids hate more than being cooped up indoors, especially when your have weather and nature as glorious as that of the Isle of Spice. Chase away their boredom by taking them to see the wonders and wildlife In Etang National Park. In this lush tropical rainforest, they can see the remnants of a once-active volcano that has formed a volcanic crater-lake, lush vegetation, as well as local fauna such as wild monkeys, hummingbirds, possum, armadillos, lizards, frogs, snakes, and colourful birds such as the hooded tanager, red-necked pigeon, and tropical mockingbird. Make sure to bring a camera to immortalize this amazing experience. While you're packing, be sure to also bring your swimsuit so you can take a dip at the Seven Sisters Falls. Families will find that swimming in its crystal waters is the perfect end to the day before heading back to their Grenada hotels.
