3. Hike into the Grand Etang National Park
The major outdoorsy draw of Grenada sits smack bang in the heart of the island.
A patchwork of sun-kissed dwarf forests, emerald-green fern blooms, waxy orchids, palm groves, gargantuan gommier trunks and primeval trees that’s set over the rising peaks of the central highlands, the reserve is a real hiker’s delight.
Weaving trails delve deep into the landscape, heading to the lookouts of Mount Qua Qua’s summit, around the lush banks of Grand Etang Lake itself, and through rugged volcanic valleys where hummingbirds and the scents of vanilla and nutmeg drift through the airs.
