There may be more than 45 beaches on the island but the favourite with locals is BBC Beach. It is lined with palm trees and is a popular spot for paddle boarding and sailing.
After all that activity, La Plywood is the place to refuel with its great views from the roof. The water levels are low making it safe for a young family. If you want more of a buzz then the Grand Anse on the island’s south-east is the hub for tourists.
Here you will find Umbrella’sBeach Bar and Coconut Beach Restaurant.
UNDERWATER SCULPTURE PARK
For me this was my real life Sir David Attenborough moment.
Set in Molinere Bay, the Underwater Sculpture Park was built in 2004 by sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor. The 60 figurines that stand on the sea floor each tell a story of Grenada’s history.
It feels like an underwater Pompeii and because the area is marine protected, there’s a proliferation of fish including clown fish, eels and schools of jacks.
