About Grenada

Sailors through the centuries have rated it one of the worlds prettiest harbours and it is hard to disagree. Horseshoe-shaped and set in a volcanic crater, Grenadas capital and cruise port St Georges is flanked by two forts, with colourful French colonial style buildings ranged along the front.

It is the perfect entrance to one of the Caribbean's most scenic islands. Only 12 miles by 21, it is awash with waterfalls, mountain valleys, rainforests, lakes and volcanic craters. The beaches are to die for, especially Grand Anse - a two-mile stretch of pure white sand just around the bay from St Georges.

Grenada is also the island you can smell before you can see it. The 'Spice Island' grows more spices per square mile than anywhere else on the planet with nutmeg its signature seasoning.

In fact, gentle haggling with spice vendors is part of the fun of cruising to this laid-back Caribbean island.

Creole Bus Sensation

Activity mediumRefreshments included

Duration: 3¾ hours

An opportunity to savor the charm of Grenada with a truly local experience onboard a brightly coloured Creole Bus!

The colourful Grenadian buses (British origin) were the first main large transport to arrive on the island back in the '50s. Abandoned in recent years in favour of more modern vehicles, the old buses have now come back into vogue as the ideal way of discovering and savouring the authentic charm of the ancient Grenada. They haven't changed two particular things: bright colours and wooden benches, creating a great atmosphere!

Carenage is what could be described as ‘a lovely little harbour’, but you'll need plenty of time and good legs to explore all of St. George’s myriad of narrow streets of this town giving you the chance to admire the breathtaking views offered by its old fortresses.

Finally, aboard the typical buses, an unexpected and intriguing tour awaits you! The lively local atmosphere will reveal the real Grenada to you, with its lush hills and its cheerful inhabitants, who still wave at the old buses as they pass, just as they did as children.

After two short stops at Fort St. George and Fort Frederick to enjoy the view, your excursion will end on one of our favourite beaches, where you can relax and enjoy a refreshing rum punch or fruit juice.

Essential information

This excursion is operated by Creole wooden bus. Space is limited and so early booking is recommended. There are approximately 30 steps to negotiate at Fort George and 20 steps at Fort Frederick.
