The majority of hotels are located on the island of Grenada, along the well known Grand Anse beach. Since the law forbids the hotels to be higher than 3 stories, you’ll most likely be staying in a cozy, intimate inn rather than a huge chain.
Climate and tourist season
The climate is tropical, with hot and rainy days during the rainy season – June to November – and cooler weather thanks to the trade winds during the dry season – December to May. Thankfully the islands are located away from the hurricane belt which means only several hurricanes hit the islands over the years.
Just like in the rest of the Caribbean, in Grenada the high season lasts between December and April with the highest prices being around Christmas and New Year’s. Since the island is not at peril from being hit by hurricanes, visiting during the low season – June to November – can be a great way to save some money and have fun at the same time.
