1.Sauteurs & Caribs Leap
Carib’s Leap is situated just down the road from Petite Anse near the town of Sauteurs and is in memory of the 40 or so Carib’s who threw themselves off a cliff instead of facing slavery by the French in 1651.
2. Levera Nature Reserve and Bathway Beach
Levera has a 23 acre pond that boasts a multitude of mangrove trees, in fact this is also the site of the largest mangrove garden on the island. Close by, Bathway Beach ‘pronounced Bat Way Beach’, is framed by palmtrees – just like tropical beaches should be. At weekends it is packed out with locals.
3. Belmont Estate
With an on site museum and plantation tours, you’ll easily fill your day visiting the Belmont Estate which was recently refurbished. In addition there is a gift shop, restaurant, goat dairy farm and cocoa processing facilities.
4. River Antoine Rum Distillery
Rum connoisseurs should not miss out on visiting Grenada’s oldest rum distillery. Refusal to be modernised, the rum produced here will take your breath away – 70% alcohol.
5. Grand Etang Lake & Nature Reserve
Explore the dense forest by visiting Grand Etang Lake & Nature Reserve. The lake is 1800 feet above sea level and 20 ft deep. It is suspected to be linked to Kick-em Jenny as the water was boiling as Kick-Em Jenny was erupting. A piece of heaven on earth.
