Sports

For many travelers, the draw of an island vacation is the opportunity to spend time out on the water participating in water sports. Whether you are body surfing the waters of a south coast beach, or building sandcastles along the shore, don’t let your vacation pass you by without getting wet. A great way to spend your time on Grenada is by chartering a boat. This way you can spend some time sailing around the island, fishing, water skiing, and even snorkeling. Signing up for a dive class and exploring one of Grenada’s many wreck sites is an experience you will never forget, so don’t let the fact that you may have to take a resort dive course deter you.

The people of Grenada like to remain active, a fact proven during the 2012 Olympics when Kirani James brought home the country's first gold medal in the 400 meter dash. Just because you are on vacation, doesn’t mean you have to give up on your exercise routine. If you plan to stay active during your trip to Grenada, there are numerous ways to do so.

Eco-tourism is popular on Grenada, so trails for hiking and biking offer visitors the option of getting their exercise in while exploring their surroundings.
