A scenic island retreat

Grenada is a blissful island retreat, where the scent of spice hangs in the air. You could take a trip the Grand Etang National Park & Forest Reserve and sit at the edge of the lake beside an extinct volcano. Wander the winding streets or pretty St. Georges. Or simply explore under the sea around your luxury hotel on an exclusive scuba diving expedition.

Top Tip from SLH

Take a trip to the River Sallee Boiling Springs, considered a spiritual site by the locals. Remember to bring a coin and make a wish before you throw it in.
