Walking, Hiking, Trekking
With its astonishing natural beauty and wide variety of ecosystems and terrain, Grenada offers some
of the finest walking, hiking, and trekking opportunities in the Caribbean.

Grenada's surrounding waters offer some of the best sailing in the Caribbean, and the island is as a result one of the yachting centres of the Caribbean. Even if you're not a sailor, you shouldn't miss an opportunity to enjoy the excitement of a regatta or the pleasures of a day or evening cruise. The Grenada Yacht Club organizes quite a few sailing events each year, including most notably the Grenada Sailing Festival in February, and there are several charter companies that offer cruises.

Scuba-Diving & Snorkelling
Grenada offers a number of excellent snorkelling and dive locations, many of which are among the last great unexplored dive sites in the Caribbean. 

Deep-Sea Fishing
Sport fishermen have long recognized the abundance of Grenada's surrounding waters, and the annual Spice Island Game Fishing Tournament attracts pros from all over the world. For the rest of us, there are plenty of charter companies that offer day trips to the same fine fishing grounds.

The Grenada Golf & Country Club is a nine-hole course located near Grand Anse. Facilities include club rental, instruction, a clubhouse offering snacks and a bar, and caddy service. For more information, call 473-444-4128.

Water Sports
An extensive range of water sports is available in Grenada, including parasailing, diving, and cruising. Most resorts offer the full array of beach water sports, and a number of companies specialize in charters and rentals.

Visitors interested in a few sets of tennis needn't look far, as many hotels have tennis facilities. Even if your hotel doesn't, it is quite easy to make arrangements for a court with another that does. There are also public courts at Grand Anse.

Local Shopping
The best buys in Grenada are batik and screen printed textiles, locally made handicraft, leather craft, and wood carvings. Attractive jewellery is sold by Spice Island Jewellery. Spices, locally-made jams, jellies, and syrups, especially nutmeg, local fresh fruits and vegetables are other good buys.

Duty Free Shopping
Grenada also offers fine duty-free bargains. Gittens Duty Free Shops have an excellent selection of duty free perfumes and cosmetics, both on the Carenage and at their newly expanded shop at the airport. Jewellery, crystal, and other gifts are available at Bon Voyage, on the Carenage and at the airport. Colombian Emeralds at the airport offers a fine selection of quality duty free jewellery. Duty free liquor is available at the airport.
