Nature-lovers will fall in love with La Sagesse, a former plantation nestled along a private estuary. Just be sure to bring your binoculars: According to the Grenada Tourism Board, La Sagesse Nature Center has some of the best bird-watching on the island. This region houses unique species as the Caribbean coot, the green-back heron, and the northern Jacuna. If you're not an avian enthusiast, La Sagesse also boasts a beautiful beach and numerous hiking trails, not to mention a small hotel and a mouthwatering restaurant.

While you're hitting the trails, keep your eyes peeled for your fellow simians. "As part of our island tour, we stopped at the nature preserve," writes one TripAdvisor user. "Much to our surprise, a monkey literally climbed over my husband's shoulder."

La Sagesse Nature Center sits along Grenada Island's southwest coast, about a 25-minute drive from St. George's and Grand Anse Beach. You can visit the nature center every day from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. for free. Guided tours are also available free of charge. Visit the La Sagesse website for more information about the area, as well as overnight accommodations.

#1 St. George's

Many travelers that have wandered the narrow streets of St. George's say that it's almost like walking through an oil painting. The vivid, brightly painted houses exude an aura of colonialism. In fact, Grenada's capital city—located on Grenada Island's southwestern shore—has earned the unofficial title of the most beautiful harbor town in the Caribbean.

Devote an hour or two to exploring St. George's marina (known as the Carenage), where you'll find plenty of restaurants serving up local cuisine with a side of spectacular views. But there's much more to this city than its postcard-worthy appearance. St. George's serves as a great place to get a whirlwind introduction to Grenadian culture. Discover the islands' colonial history at Fort Frederick and Fort George and learn about local spices at Market Square.
