Grenada for Families: Beaches, Fish Fries and Chocolate

Caribbean Island that are close to the US, like the Bahamas and Virgin Islands, get the most buzz for family winter getaways. But islands further south like  Grenada, Dominica and Barbados have neat opportunities to get off the beach and explore nature, local history and West Indian culture. They’re alluring to me. So I was excited to receive this list of 9 things to do in Grenada. They are supposedly the favorite local activities of Olympic gold medalist Kirani James. I’m not sure I believe that, but they’re appealing ideas that give you a sense of what the “Spice Island” has to offer to families.

Gouyave Fish Fridays

Kirani’s hometown of Gouyave, in the northwest part of the island, hosts this weekly street party where tourists and local people gather for music, dancing and fresh seafood. Things kick off at 6:00 and go well into the night, but with little kids it’s best to get there on the early side when it’s less crowded and loud.

Gouyave Nutmeg Processing Station

Grenada produces one-third of the world’s nutmeg. Before the fish fry visit this nutmeg factory, where you can see workers select, grade and package the nutmegs. It only costs $1, which means you’ll have money left over to sop for local spices from the Nutmeg World store.

Grand Anse Beach

This two-mile stretch of white sand and turquoise water is home to several beaches with calm child-friendly waters. You’ll find shops where families with big kids and teens can book activities like scuba, waterskiing, parasailing and windsurfing. A vendors’ market features local spices, crafts and food as well as practical stuff like beach chairs. There are plenty of restaurants and hotels, too.
