Levera National Park

The Levera National Park is located in the historical parish of St Patrick. It encompasses 450 acres which consists of beaches, pond, hiking trail and spectacular views.

Levera Beach is a popular location where leather back turtles come to lay their eggs between the months of April and July. Did you know that Leatherback turtles travel thousands of miles per year to return to their original place of birth to lay their eggs? Yup, Mother Nature never ceases to amaze!

One of the most scenic views in Grenada is atop Rose Hill, where you have a breathtaking view of the entire park, which includes the pond, the beach and the neighbouring islands; Isle Le Ronde, Sugar Loaf, Green Island and Sandy Island. If you’re up for a challenge, you can take hike trail to the top.

Lastly, the Levera Bird Sanctuary is the home to a large mangrove swamp and a variety of important bird species.
