Introducing Point Salines & True Blue
The area around Point Salines is dominated by the oceanside airport, named Maurice Bishop International in honor of the island’s revolutionary leader. It’s also 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. Crowning the peninsula enclosing True Blue Bay, St George’s Medical School (SGU) is a sprawling and pleasant campus inhabited almost exclusively by young Americans. It feels like you could be on a campus anywhere in the States – but perhaps that’s the point – and the students do inject a bit of life into this otherwise sleepy corner of Grenada.
