Famous Grand Anse beach is one of the island’s best and is justifiably popular. It's lined with a relaxed assortment of low-rise resorts. Drop by for the day at Camerhogne Park, where you can rent a lounger and get a snack. To escape crowds, look for a little dirt road off Grand Anse Rd, where it turns south right after the Spice Island Beach Resort.
Grand Etang Road
Overhung with rainforest and snaking uphill in a series of switchback turns, the Grand Etang Rd shoots right up the island's spine. The mountainous center of the island is often awash with misty clouds, and looks like a lost primordial world, its tangle of rainforest brimming with life – including monkeys that often get a bit too friendly.
Grand Etang National Park
Two and a half miles northeast of Constantine, after the road winds steeply up to an elevation of 1900ft, you enter Grand Etang National Park, a natural wonderland laced with hiking trails. At the visitor center you can pay your admission, learn a little about the park and get a refreshment.
Point Salines & True Blue
The filigreed coastline around Point Salines is dominated by Maurice Bishop International Airport. It’s notable for the string of lovely beaches to the north of the runway, just off the airport road. South of the airport, True Blue is a relaxed corner of the island with some nice top-end hotels, good eateries and multiple yacht marinas.
La Sagesse Nature Centre
Sitting along a palm-lined bay with protected swimming and a network of hiking trails, La Sagesse Nature Centre occupies the former estate of the late Lord Brownlow, a cousin of Queen Elizabeth II. His beachside manor house, built in 1968, has been turned into a small inn.
Morne Rouge Bay
Though just down the way from Grand Anse Beach, this superior stretch of beach is a brilliant example of the snow-white sand and crystal-clear blue water that the Caribbean is known for. Development has so far been modest, so it's uncrowded. It has shade but limited services.
On the northern tip of the island, the town of Sauteurs (whose French name translates as ‘Jumpers’) is best known for its grim history. In 1651, local Carib families elected to throw themselves off the 130ft-high cliffs that line the coast rather than surrender to the advancing French army.
Backed by eroding sea cliffs, Levera Beach is a wild, beautiful sweep of sand. Just offshore is the high, pointed Sugar Loaf Island, while the Grenadine islands dot the horizon to the north. The beach, the mangrove swamp and the nearby pond have been incorporated into Grenada’s national-park system and are an important waterfowl habitat and sea-turtle nesting site.
There are a couple of scenic waterfalls along the Concord River. The lowest, a picturesque 100ft cascade, can be viewed by driving to the end of Concord Mountain Rd, a side road leading 1.5 miles inland from the village of Concord. These falls are on private property and the owner charges US$1 to visit them.
