Relaxation features prominently within the itinerary during Grenada family holidays and the Caribbean island’s smattering of sandy beaches are tailor-made for regrouping and rejuvenating with your brood. Nicknamed the ‘Spice Island’ for its role as a former spice trading hub, this legacy is discernible from the occasional whiff of nutmeg or cinnamon in the air and the remaining cooperatives which dot the interior. Beyond the pristine strips of sand, there are plenty of pursuits which will keep even the most energetic of children entertained; hike to hidden waterfalls, learn to sail in the shallows or tour a historic cocoa plantation.
Beneath the turquoise waves, you’ll find a fascinating underwater gallery in the form of British artist Jason de Caires Taylor’s life-size sculpture park, one of Grenada’s diving highlights.

Grenada is home to much more than idyllic caster-sugar beaches (although they are beautiful); the country also plays host to some of the Caribbean’s best-preserved rainforests and national parks. During Grenada family holidays, set out on guided hikes through the foliage with an expert naturalist, who will keep children entertained with intriguing tales of the region’s former inhabitants. You can rest assured that every walk will be tailor-made with little ones in mind and will be rewarded with wild swimming in natural pools and waterfalls at the end.
While there’s no doubt that you’ll want to spend some time appreciating the ‘Spice Island’s’ signature beaches, there are still a plethora of other activities that can be enjoyed during Grenada family holidays. Eight to 12 year olds can kick off their diving career with a beginner’s class in the hotel pool, while seasoned underwater explorers can discover Grenada’s incredible reef and fascinating wrecks. An unmissable diving experience is a visit to the Underwater Sculpture Park in the Molinere-Beauséjour Marine Reserve, where 75 sculptures line the seabed. Other water-based activities include sailing with an expert instructor in the calm shallows or trying your hand at deep water fishing, before cooking up your catch with the help of a chef.
