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.

The Dunfermline Estate is situated on an enchanting hilltop in the Dunfermline, Moya area of St Andrew with perhaps the best panoramic view you will find. The property is adorned with beautiful flowers and an immaculate lawn. The majestic entrance is lined with Royal Palm Trees on both sides; their height signifying longevity. This property known as “The Cottage”, rich in history and full of potential is on the market for US$1.3M.
Magazine Beach is another beautiful beach along the strip of beaches that include Portici beach and Parc a Beouf Beach a..k.a Dr. Grooms beach. Given that there has been severe damage to the coral reefs along this beach, it’s waters produces high waves somewhat good for surfing. If riding waves isn’t your fancy, this beach is popular to locals for having BBQ’s or cookouts particularly on public holidays.
“You don’t get into something to test the waters, you get into things to make waves.”
When visiting the Spice Isle there are many accommodation options, however if you’re looking for something quaint, romantic, secluded, affordable and with a beautiful view La Sagesse Hotel is perfect for you. The main building referred to as ‘Manor House’ is of colonial style and housed the first two rooms when the current owners just bought it. The La Sagesse Bay waters is one of the shallowest and calmest on the island.
There’s something very captivating about coconut trees.
Just ‘hanging around’. A hammock is a must-have when you live on an island!
‘Post Up’. Behind me is the Restaurant and Bar.
Located at the south of the island, less than 5 minutes drive from the airport is one of Grenada’s finest white sand beaches with calm and extremely warm waters. On the secluded beach front lies one of Grenada’s most romantic cottage boutique hotels La Luna. Adjacent to it is the Beach House restaurant known for its idyllic ambience particularly at sunset into the night.

Another luxury island resort located in the Grenadines, a short boat ride away from Petit Saint Vincent.
After a fun-filled day of exploring the Tobago Cays on Saturday, we ventured over to Petit Saint Vincent on Mother’s Day for breakfast. The food was delicious and quite fulling. Thanks Bev 🙂
The staff was gracious enough to give us a tour of the island paradise where most couples visit for some RnR. What I love most about the island is the sense of seclusion given that the cabins are separated from each other by a generous distance. There is no internet nor television and any requests/orders are made by the ‘flag system’. The telephone is only used in case of an emergency. After our tour we lounged on the beach and thought how lucky are we?

Petit Martinique in the distance. Most of the staff live there and are transported over by boat everyday.
They even recycle! Christmas trees made out of dried coconuts.♥
In less than 2 months I have had the pleasure of experiencing the wonders of the Grenadines more specifically the Tobago Cays; one less thing on my bucket list. On this second time around the trip was much shorter but nonetheless exciting.
The flight from Grenada to Carriacou via SVG Air was smooth although the landing got a bit shaky. The view was spectacular. Instead of a sail boat (Savvys Sailing) we went via speed boat on Simply Carriacou Island Tours. Our ride up to the Cays was a very bumpy one but our captain assured us that the boat was made to ride the waves best.
The Tobago Cays is a Marine protected area that consists of 5 uninhabited islands. It’s most prominent feature is its picturesque turquoise waters. The main inhabitants on these islands are iguanas and birds. Out of all of the islands, Baradal is most fascinating since its located on the boundary of the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. As you walk towards the Atlantic side you can feel a slight difference in the temperature. We devoured our scrumptious lunch on Petit Bateau compliments Chef MandyMan- best Lambi anyone ever had.
