Eco-Tourism

Eco-Tourism

Grenada captivates its visitors with the finest ecotourism experience.  Visitors soak up Grenada’s world-famous white sand and black sand beaches, coastal mangroves, coral reefs and an active underwater volcano as well as its towering peaks and rich tropical forests – with abundant biodiversity – that span the core of the island.

Grand Etang Lake

Grand Etang Lake is a crater lake in an extinct volcano located within the Grand Etang National Park and Forest Reserve. 

The Forest Reserve, known for its hiking and trekking trails are one of the most popular destinations in Grenada.  These trails range from a leisurely 15-minute stroll to a strenuous 6-hour trek.  The National Park is home to varied wildlife such as tropical birds, frogs, lizards, and rare orchids and many wonderous waterfalls, hot springs and plantations. 

In recent years, the Government of Grenada established a number of national parks and protected areas, preventing the destruction of forests and the island's exotic animal life.

 

Levera National Park

Levera National Park, found in the northern tip of Grenada, covers 450 acres of lush forest, water bodies, beaches and mangroves. Levera National Park’s scenic beauty, white sand beach and amazing snorkeling opportunities near the seagrass beds and rocky reefs, frequently draw natives and tourists alike.

Levera National Park’s shallow lagoon is an important habitat to many wildlife, the ocean waters provide a safe haven to marine life, and the beach is a fertile breeding ground for the rare and endangered leatherback turtle.

Coral Reefs

Grenada has many well-known coral reef sites spread across the South Coast and West coast of the island. Visitors can easily access them by boat and by diving. Diving excursions offer visitors an astounding view of the island’s diverse marine life as well as the world’s first underwater park. Grenada’s underwater park exhibits sculptures that explore themes of local folklore, history, and culture.

La Sagesse

La Sagesse is a mangrove estuary that stretches along the south-western coast and includes three excellent beaches edged with palm trees, a beautiful and expansive coral reef for snorkeling, and a pristine spread of dry thorn scrub and cactus woodland.

La Sagesse is known as one of the best bird-watching locales on Grenada as it has a salt pond that attracts species like a brown crested flycatcher, Caribbean coot, green-backed heron, little blue heron, and the northern jacuna.

Concord Falls

For challenge-seekers, Concord Falls offers an hour-long hike over hilltops and streams, which leads to the Triple Cascades. The lowest cascade is known for swimming and camping and the second cascade, a mere twenty-minute hike from the first has a stunning waterfall surrounded by rich and lush green vegetation. To reach the third cascade, challenge-seekers will need to complete a very difficult 2-hour trek as it is much higher in altitude and full of thick tropical vegetation.

Boat Adventures

Take charge of your guided water excursions by piloting your own inflatable motorboat or discover Pure Grenada on a custom-built powerboat. You can cruise along the picturesque coast, stop off at our amazing snorkeling and dive sites or satisfy your need for speed riding the rippling waves; an overall exhilarating experience.
