For those more inclined to stay above water (or shallowly associated with it) Grenada is a great off-the-beaten-path island in the Caribbean to explore. There are no gigantic all inclusive resorts, and the most tourism they get is a cruise ship stopping into port for the afternoon.
So here are 5 things to do in Grenada that don't involve being in charge of your own oxygen levels
|*| Visit the Spice Market in St. George's on Saturday mornings and grab a coconut to sip on while seeing what the Isle of Spice has to offer (lots of cinnamon and nutmeg). This is also a great opportunity to wander the streets of St. George's and walk up to Fort George.

Okay, enough with all that, now comes the real reason a sane person would want to go to Grenada. The beaches! The most well recognized beach on the island is Grand Anse.

Now just because this is a scuba destination, doesn't mean that those who are omg-water-petrifies-me can't enjoy some of that underwater beauty! Grenada is a great place to snorkel with reefs located just feet away from the beach that are teeming with beautiful fish. If you want to spend the day snorkeling, I would definitely recommend going to Sandy Island located off of Carriacou Island. Here are a few pics, I'll be putting up another post with the logistics of getting there!
