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.

#2 Grand Anse Beach

Frommer's describes Grand Anse as "the granddaddy" of Grenada's 45 beaches, but that's an understatement. This two-mile stretch of creamy-white sand overlooks a sheltered, azure-hued bay where bright red and yellow fishing boats burst with color. Numerous hotels, restaurants, and shops act as a convenient backdrop to this postcard-perfect scene, making this a great home base for sun-seeking visitors.

Recent visitors love this beach, but they do warn that local vendors' aggressive sales pitches can put a damper on a relaxing day in the sun. To avoid any conflicts, just sternly say "No, thank you" (unless you actually want to make a purchase).
