Wondering what to do in Grenada? Well, that is between lazing on one of the 45+ beaches and slipping to the nearest bar to try their unique rum punch… Follow me to a magical island, one full of exotic aroma, filled with laughter and the perfect place to adventure.

Before you start reading this list of what to do in Grenada, pop on a Soca playlist and grab a bristlin’ coconut to sip on. That’ll start the (e-)liming session off nicely. Then, conjure a little sunshine, a touch of tropical rain, book your comfortable flight and we’re in a very good place indeed.
Want to know where to stay in Grenada? True Blue Bay is something rather unique – a boutique resort on the island of Grenada, replete with Dodgy Dock overlooking a marina, a rum shack, friendly resident cats, a litany of nooks to sip cocktails in and the unique sound of tree frogs that croaked through the night.

Words can’t really describe how much I was looking forward to escaping the dreary English winter for the tropical Caribbean island shores of Grenada. I was already fed up of getting caught in the icy rain and shrugging on layers of heavy clothing – and it was only the very start of the coldest season of the year.

I’d always dreamt of exploring the Caribbean – rowing to a teeny island with sparkling sands and palm trees waving over turquoise seas, but before I’d started blogging all those years ago I’d honestly never heard of Grenada.
It’s fair to say that 90% of my waking thoughts centre around travel in some form and I knew from the moment I heard about the Searcys Art Of Travel afternoon tea in St Pancras Station, that I wanted to pop in and try this iteration of themed afternoon teas in London. The only problem was that I was too busy travelling to book it in for an age…London
Luckily, one of my favourite partners-in-mischief rolled into London fresh from New York, which gave us the perfect excuse to daydream alongside the Eurostar trains rolling themselves to Paris, Brussels & The Netherlands.
How on earth do I describe Dubrovnik in a way that sufficiently does the city justice and doesn’t just boil down to yet another ‘things to do in Dubrovnik’ blog post list?
When deciding where to go, we took our time researching and consulting friends who had been to the city for longer than just a cruise ship day offloading (a source of many visitors) and when a good friend suggested that if we go to Croatia, that we visit most perfectly preserved medieval cities in the world we fell on her suggestion.
