Divers can expect to see lots of coral and sunken ships in addition to the animal life.
Sailing is also a popular option in the area, and the weather is generally gorgeous so its the perfect type of wind and skies for it.
Visiting the national park is another popular activity to do on the island. There you can take lots of different hikes and get acquainted with the undisturbed nature of the area.

The weather in Grenada is tropical so you can expect sun all year round with the very occasional rains. The weather can be quite humid, so bringing light, breathable clothing is always a good idea. Things like cotton dresses and t-shirts are ideal for staying comfortable during the daytime, and they also work for nighttime as well since the overall vibe is pretty casual. You can also get by a lot of the time wearing a bathing suit with a cover up. Sandals of course work great, but bring athletic shoes if you plan to hike or do some other outdoor activities on land. Don’t forget the sunscreen and the bug repellant!
