Grenada

Tailor Made Holidays and Honeymoons to the ‘spice island’ Grenada. 

Contact us for a bespoke holiday to the Caribbean on 01728 748209, use the live chat or send an enquiry. 

This tiny nation in The Caribbean, consists of three islands, the largest is Grenada and then Carriacou and Petite Martinique (which is actually part of the Grenadine string of islands to the north).  These islands form the most southerly part of the Windward chain and lie just 100 miles north of Venezuela on the land mass of South America. There are direct flights from London to Grenada and the average temperature here is around 24 – 27 C.

Famed for forests fragrant with cinnamon, allspice, cocoa and nutmeg, take a spice tour around the plantations. There are several parties and festivals here including Independence Day in February, Grensave International Food and Drink Extravaganza, and St. Patrick’s Day Festival in March. In April, big-drum, string-band music and quadrille dancing take center stage at the Carriacou Maroon Music Festival. Visit in May for the Grenada Drum Festival. In December, delve into the three-day carol-singing festivities of the Carriacou Parang Festival.

Inland there are crater filled lakes, rivers and valleys and gorgeous lush mountains, making this a haven for kayakers, mountain biking and hiking and a good number of birds for natural history holidays with nature centres, lake reserves and pretty view points.

Carriacou is a mecca for scuba divers and snorkelers and on Petite Martinique, many inhabitants build boats or make their living by fishing.

On Grenada, this former British colony offers charming architecture, 300-year-old churches and narrow streets. Fort George and Fort Frederick date back to the 18th century. Restaurants and resorts centres line Grand Anse, a popular 2-mile stretch of sand. South and East of Grand Anse, other beaches line the coves of L’Anse Aux Epines, an upscale residential community. Head north to view Grenada’s rich agricultural and natural bounty. The capital is St George built around a sweeping harbour and one of the prettiest towns in the Caribbean. At Gouyave visit one of the nutmeg-processing stations or stop at the Grenada Chocolate Company, a tiny solar-powered cottage factory featuring antique machinery. The nearby historic River Antoine Rum Distillery is the Caribbean’s only water-powered mill still operating. Visit the plantation home Morne Fendue, a 1908 structure that serves lunch and now has guest rooms.

Sailing has long been an integral part of Grenada’s lifestyle. Visitors can hire charter companies for day excursions or weekly charters with crew or bareboat. Game fishing is big sport here and late January heralds the three-day Spice Island Billfish Tournament. Savour the delights of Bay Gardens, one of many well-kept botanical sites. Active visitors can also sign up for whale and dolphin watching expeditions. Between December and April is the best chance to see these creatures with 15 different species migrating through here.

Thank you for booking our French Caribbean self guided walking holiday to Guadeloupe and Martinique Travel With Jules adapted the original itinerary by Headwater (the operator) to suit our travel needs from Edinburgh and resolved a ridiculously unnecessary booking on a very early transfer flight at no extra cost to us when Headwater had raised a charge.

All I can say is AWESOME!!!!!! The staff and other visitors at The Body Holiday were so friendly, I didn't feel uncomfortable as a solo traveller (after the first fifteen minutes of watching others obviously!) at all. The hosted communal evening meals were lively, friendly, interesting discussions with perfect strangers, several of whom I subsequently spent meal times with. The service was fantastic, the staff were friendly and I will definitely be looking to travel there again. I would also like to say thank you for putting me on to such a wonderful spot and I would love it if more places were so open to solo travellers and accommodating to different needs. All in all I would score it 10 out of 10!

Our holiday to Dominican Republic was a huge success, thank you! We loved the beautifully conceived "travel packs" that added a "wow" factor! The holiday was also a cloak-and-dagger operation for me to propose to Sophie. The hotel excelled itself on providing 10 restaurants with a la carte offerings - food was superb. Thank you for all your help in making this special holiday happen!

Everything was spot on. The second hotel was excellent - well recommended. Shirley heights on Sunday and the excellence 360 island trip are brilliant.

Cuba – what an amazing country ... the noise and bustle of Havanna, the cars, the history, the people, a place stopped in time, interesting scenery, history and culture and the most beautiful beaches!

Julie gave us an excellent service for our holiday to Barbados. She listened to our requirements, gave informed advice and provided more than we had asked for! We will use her again and will recommend her to family and friends.

Our Caribbean holiday to Antigua was fantastic!! The Inn at English Harbour was really beautiful, quiet and tranquil. Did some excellent snorkelling and a couple of tours as well. Absolutely perfect, certainly one of the best holidays we've had. Thank you so much for organising it, we'll be back for more!

It was lovely to have Jules to sort everything out for us, and it certainly meant that we could relax and get on with organising the other parts of our wedding safe in the knowledge that our honeymoon was being taken care of for us. Everything went as smoothly as it could be from start to finish, we had zero problems throughout.

One of the things I have come to love about you, Jules, is that you listen and take on board what makes me tick, and then tailor the holiday to fit me, not just try to convince me to fit a holiday in a brochure!
