Best time to visit Grenada
The best months to visit Grenada are May and early June, after the high season crowds have gone but before the rains and the winds of hurricane season set in.
Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique have a tropical climate with average daytime temperatures ranging from 25°C in January and February to 31°C in July and August. Weather-wise, the dry high-season winter months of December to April are the best time to visit. However, accommodation and flight prices are significantly higher, too. The worst months to visit are September and October – the peak of the hurricane season that runs from July to November. Hurricane Ivan wreaked havoc in Grenada in 2004, so it always pays to be cautious. The liveliest time to visit is the first half of August, when carnival turns the islands into a massive party.

Grenada travel advice
Vivianne McGrath, from our Caribbean vacation specialists Mot Mot Travel, says:
Best time to visit
“I always like the Caribbean in the slightly quieter months of November and early December or April to May. There are fewer tourists around and prices are a bit cheaper, but the weather is still very good. Having said that, Grenada is wonderful at any time of year!”
Grenada must sees
“There are so many wonderful beaches to choose from, but visitors should not ignore the interior of the island, where there is a superb rainforest, lots of beautiful waterfalls and some great hiking trails. St George’s is probably the prettiest capital city in the Caribbean and definitely worth a visit. Grenada has won a Gold Medal at Chelsea Flower Show for the 15th time this year and there are some wonderful private gardens on the island that tourists can visit. Then for divers, there are some great sites including the Sculpture Park, which is odd but wonderful, and a ‘must see’ even for snorkelers.”
“Try and visit one of the street food festivals for some authentic flavours. Every Friday, in the village of Gouyave, the local fisherman sell their freshly cooked catch including the local delicacy, Lambie, which is what they call Conch in Grenada.”
