our stop was late in the day, at 2 p.m., so we had to rush to see the castle or fort, but it was a beautiful view, then rush to the beach, which was great! Nice hosts, rum punch, sandwiches. Nice bar on the beach with nice washrooms. would have brought my own snorkel next time to be able to do a spontaneous snorkel anywhere. Nice waves to swim in. lovely water. Lots of chairs well spaced. Grenada was one of our favorites. Read Less

Grenada, the Spice Island. Most visitors go to Grand Anse Beach but it get very, very busy and very cramped so not very enjoyable. They have a good water taxi service there and back. The better beach to go to is Morne Rouge but you have to get a land taxi there. Interesting town to walk around but you o get pestered alot by the locals and store holders so beware. Read Less

Had a tour with AJ Tours- Alan Meddy. I had read about him on Trip Advisor and he had a favorable rating. There were 7 of us. He created a special tour for just us. Our driver was "skipper". Price was reasonable. Only negative was that he told us that the "Air conditioning stopped working in his van the day before"... not sure if that was true- but it was hot. It was ok when we were moving with the windows down. AJ did come to meet me at our first stop and he seemed disappointed for us when I told him about the AC not working- but he did know. Tough when you are traveling with a 90 year old. Read Less

Our shore excursion was canceled, so we felt very fortunate to have been offered a water taxi to Grand Anse Beach. Upon our return, we encountered a local cab driver (Duffy) who took us to Annandale Falls. Although the falls are small and somewhat unremarkable, it's a scenic ride, yet somewhat hair raising. Since we were there on a Sunday, much of the town would have been closed, so walking into town to shop would have been a wasted trip. Read Less

With so many ports, we picked this one as a relaxing day. We got off the ship and shopped around in the small town, then go back on and spent the day reading at the pool .

Loved this one! Got off the ship fairly early, and caught a water taxi to Grand Anse Beach, about a 5-10 min ride. $8 r/t. Tons of water taxis to leave whenever you want. Dropped you off on a dock at the beach. Beach rental was $20 for 2 chairs and umbrella (get the umbrella here!). I am a serious sunbather and was so happy with the umbrella that day! Water was close and calm. You could walk out quite far. Only downfall was the guys on the beach trying to get us to go out on his tube. $10pp for a 1 minute ride. They were very persistent. We finally gave one guys $5 to leave us alone. Food was not good. Lots of different people selling food and apparently all have different menus. Get a fresh coconut for $3 and drink the water. Delicious. Got back to the ship around 4, after a little shopping for spices in port. They smell delicious and I can't wait to cook with them! Read Less

We headed for Grand Anse beach. Being we were the only ship in port, the beach wasn't too crowded. $15 for two chairs and an umbrella, we paid the same for a bucket (6) of beers. Don't be fooled, there's not much by way of facilities here, but rather guys walking the beach with drink and food menu's who will run for you. It gets competitive, but Frankie was great. Read Less

Grande Anse is the only beach we go to here and we are getting a little tired of it. The beach umbrella rental people are downright rude. They were asking $20 for ragged umbrellas and broken-down chairs. It's too bad. The beach is nice. The boat taxis are also getting higher every year. I think next year we will stay on-board.

We caught a water taxi to Grand Anse beach from the cruise terminal - quite an exhilerating ride, and don't expect to stay dry! It felt like most of the ship was on the beach but we still had a great day. The further you walk from the water taxi dock the quieter it gets, so if you want someting more peaceful keep walking. We took up the offer of one of the beach boys for 2 beds and a brolly for $20 nearby and then settled down with a bucket of beer to watch the world go by and were kept amused by the endlessly optimisitc water sports sales guys who seemd quite prepared to ask anyone of any age if they wanted to have a ride on what looked like a huge infaltable armchair towed behind a speedboat! I settled for a gentle swim every 1/2 hour or so. Further along the beach was a small craft and spice market where you could get the spices so famous on the island. I got 3 "spice necklaces" as gifts for friends and the smell was lovely. When the water taxi dropped us back in St Georges we had a brief look around but felt there wasn't much to see. Damage from hurricane Ivan was till evident.We bumped into another couple on the way back to the ship who had been to the spice market in town and from their report we would recommend you give this a wide berth if you don't like to be hassled by the sellers. The duty free shops back at the Crise terminal seemed to offer some of the best value we found in the trip. Read Less

Did a shore tour to a falls that was very nice, but be aware, it was a hard climb and you would slip & slide if the trail (rocks) had been wet from rain. No dock side bar, really nothing at the port. So unlike ports in Europe.

Took a private group tour, of this beautiful island. However, the description of the tour, was not consistent with the actual experience. A visit to the spice plantation, implied that a small group of people were involved. In reality there were many, many tour busses-there-at the same time. Probably about 150 people jammed into the open air facility. A person could not move, which made it difficult to hear any vocal presentation. The 6 hour island tour, involved traveling among several tour busses, over the hilly, bumpy roads; from one tourist stop to the next one. It definitely was the most "touristy" excursion, we have ever taken. Disappointing, to say the least. Read Less

No shore excursion here. The port retains most of it's local color as there is limited tourist development. Be sure to take the steep walk to the fort overlooking the port for wonderful views.

There is a junky mall attached to the port. There is a lively market downtown within walking distance; good spot to buy vanilla, nutmeg, and other spices. We took the public bus to La Sagesse Nature Center for $7 per person return. Taking the public bus is a great experience if you are adventurous; 20 people packed into a minivan without AC and blaring reggae music! We felt bad for other cruisers who paid $70 return for a taxi and missed out on such a uniquely fun experience. La Sagesse is a beautiful unspoiled beach with a single boutique hotel on it approximately 40 min from port. We rented lounge chairs for $4 each. There is a small restaurant on site with good (expensive) food and slow, unfriendly service. Bring your own beverages. There were only about 12 people here; felt like we were on a deserted island!

We went to gran anse beach. We took a cab to the spice island resort. The beach is lovely and they let us use their beach chairs. They gave us a tour of the resort which is very nice but expensive with a suite running 2,500 for one night. We walked around gran anse beach and did some geocaching. our taxi driver came back and took us to lunch at an authentic local place where we tried curries, breadfruit, and other local dishes. It was delicious and for 4 people with soft drinks ( they had delicious local fruit drink) and only cost $35. The place was right next to the port. He offered to do a private tour for us . It was very reasonable and we were SO glad we did it. He took us to one of those " spice " places where he did a spice presentation and then took us to a gorgeous waterfall where we could swim.... Oh, amazingly refreshing . Read Less
