Come explore the natural side of Grenada at this 30 acre national park. Whether you enjoy hiking, bird watching, or simply being immersed in nature, Grand Etang National Park and Forest is one of Grenada's finest natural attractions.

Maintaining several different eco-systems within one nature park, guests are able to explore terrain that spans from the forest floor to the mountain top.

Varied species of birds, lizards, and other animals make their home in the Grand Etang National Park and Forest.

Location

Located on the island of Grenada, 4.5 miles northeast of St. George's, Grand Etang National Park and Forest invites residents and guests rooming on this part of the island. But even if you aren't staying in this location, you are free to stop by for some fun in the sun. If you're curious, Gouyave is four miles (six and a half kilometers) to the north.

Nearby Restaurants

Of course, one of the most exciting options while spending a few hours exploring the area is enjoying a dish at a restaurant within traveling distance of the wildlife reservation. Bernie's Ice Cream is a wonderful eatery to eat at on your way to visiting the wildlife reservation, and is the closest restaurant to it. Also close-by, you will come across options including Deyna's Tasty Foods and La Heliconia Restaurant where you and your party may sample Caribbean fare and experience the culture of Grenada.

Nearby Attractions

Visitors that like nature preserves, and have the energy to view some others, might consider seeing Mt. Hartman Dove Sanctuary and Levera National Park; the second is ten miles to the northeast of this nature preserve. Additional nearby attractions include Au Coin Waterfall, which is within driving distance near Gouyave. You might also consider heading over to Concord Waterfall, which is another attraction nearby.
