Grenada has been at the forefront of tourism development with new airlifts, accommodations, experiences, restaurants and more, and the warm and friendly Grenadian people invite travelers to experience pure Grenada and the uniqueness of the Caribbean spice island.
As travelers reconnect with their passion for travel, the destination of the three islands of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique has updated its COVID-19 health and safety protocols, effective July 31, to encourage international travelers to visit.
“The health and safety of the citizens of Grenada and its visitors has been a priority since the start of this pandemic and our strict measures through our Pure Safe Travel initiative have enabled Grenada to contain the spread of COVID-19”, said Petra Roach, CEO, Granada Tourism Authority.
âWe are delighted to welcome travelers again and showcase the exciting new tourism developments that will continue to distinguish our island as a jewel of the Caribbean. Once our guests arrive, they will discover that the culture, cuisine and idyllic scenery of the destination are the definition of paradise.
Grenada’s spectacular natural topography is complemented by a charming selection of boutique hotels and luxury villas, cuisine infused with exotic local spices, 40 white sand beaches including the famous Grand Anse beach and 15 waterfalls to cut the breath. Other goodies include five chocolate factories, three rum distilleries and over 30 unforgettable dive sites, including the Caribbean’s largest wreck, the âBianca Câ and the world’s first underwater sculpture park.
More recently, the Caribbean Spice Island, famous for its aromatic spices and chocolate, was officially named Culinary Capital by the World Food Travel Association (WFTA), created to showcase culinary cultures around the world.
