A few words from the Grenada Board of Tourism...
In recent years, Grenada’s reputation as a preferred Caribbean destination for yachting enthusiasts seeking safe anchorages has been on an upward progression.
From its friendly hospitable people, to its low crime, abundant boatyards, marinas, chandleries and excellent yacht services, Grenada is quickly becoming a destination of choice. At 12 degrees north and outside of the hurricane belt, Grenada is one of the few islands in the Caribbean that has a year round yacht trade.
With so many yachts coming to our shores for the summer it has become not only the safe place to be, but also the social place to be as well. With activities from our summer carnival to the weekly Hash House Harriers run to live bands, cricket, squash, volleyball, and other major events, yachties are finding so many fun activities in Grenada in the summertime.
Grenada’s location as the closest island to the Grenadines with an international airport, puts Grenada in the perfect location as a home base to explore the beautiful islands of the Grenadines.
One can also not forget Grenada itself with its abundance of spices, rivers, waterfalls, fantastic diving and a range of historic and natural attractions. The Underwater Sculpture Park, which was dubbed by National Geographic Magazine as one of the 25 wonders of the world is among this alluring assortment of attractions.
Yachting and sailing are indeed integral to Grenada’s thrust to diversify its tourism product. This is currently facilitated through the ‘Sail Clear’ vessel pre-arrival notification system allowing yachts to manage their voyage details online – and in one place – thus simplifying the travel experience and the paperworks – Go to www.sailclear.com for further details.
Through its annual Grenada Sailing Week in January, top quality international keel boats from the UK, Europe, USA, and the Caribbean have participated in international yacht races. Other popular regattas in Grenada include the Sailing Festival / Workboat Regatta and Carriacou Regatta.
