As the capital city and a major port town, St. George's has a lot going for it.  In addition to all of the cultural and political landmarks, the beaches here are a favorite among cruise ship passengers, and a park and botanical garden offer visitors a chance to spend some time outdoors in a setting that isn't overflowing with sand. 


Grand Anse Beach

You'll find an abundance of beaches to consider visiting, though each of them are found in neighboring areas. Snorkeling is an option at some locations, if some members of your party are so inclined. Just click on each beach name for a detailed review of that individual beach.

If you are looking for a place to snorkel, a beach providing that option is Grand Anse Beach. There's plenty to do at Grand Anse Beach from water skiing to scuba diving. Vendors along the beach rent water sports equipment and sell coral jewelry, t-shirts, and hand-made crafts.

Another good option for those who enjoy snorkeling is Quarantine Point Beach. On the southwestern tip of Grand Anse Bay is a little stretch of sand known as Quarantine Point Beach. This land mass juts out into the ocean, meeting the waves head on, taking the brunt of the waves so that the beach within the bay remains a calm place to play.

Dragon Bay: Dragon Bay slopes into an arch along the west coast. The beach features deep aquamarine waters that wash ashore dark tan sands which are backed by thick green trees.

These examples are just a few of what you can find. If you'd like to dig deeper, you can find out more here.

Landmark Attractions

Fort George

An interesting landmark worth visiting is West Indies Cricket Heritage Centre. It is found within northwestern Saint George's. This museum is open between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

Grenada National Museum: The Grenada National Museum is housed in an old army barracks and prison that was originally built in 1704. The museum is located off Young Street, and is a quaint locale, but filled with a great deal of interesting information about island history and culture.

Fort George: Completed by the British in 1710, Fort George served to protect St. George's City from attack. Today, only some portions of the fort is open to the public, with the other part serving as offices for the Royal Grenada Police Force.

Of course, the area has additional places to visit. For more information about other sites worth visiting this specific topic, go to this guide to other interesting places to visit in and around Saint George's.

Natural Attractions

De La Grenade Nutmeg Garden

St. Rose Nursery and Garden is one of the local attractions you might enjoy. Guests to Grenada looking to explore some of the more natural side of the island without leaving the convenience of civilization may want to look at the St. Rose Nursery and Gardens. This compromise of nature and development will take you through a collection of vegetation and flowers that are perfect for a quick relaxing activity.

Hyde Park Garden is another option worth considering. Hyde Park has been a grand estate and home to the Roberts family for over six generations. Recently, much of the property has been transformed into a fantastic garden that offers a tranquil stop on your tour of Grenada.

Needless to say, you'll find a wider range of choices too. Those wanting to find out more about natural attractions in and near Saint George's, can do so by visiting this page.
