Spice up your honeymoon with a post-wedding trip to Grenada, a nutmeg-scented Caribbean island with a handful of world-class resorts that maintains its quiet pace amid long, uncrowded beaches, dramatic mountains, and sparkling waterfalls.
The queen of the Grenadines, Grenada’s passions include spices and sailing: honeymooners can tour nutmeg plantations, stroll through carefully tended tropical gardens, learn to sail, and plunge beneath the waves to visit unique underwater sculptures in one of the Eastern Caribbean’s best dive destinations. La Sagesse Beach in quiet St. David Parish is a favorite of couples seeking splendid isolation, and steps away from the La Sagesse Nature Centre, which has hiking trails and a small inn on the lush grounds of a former estate.
When you’re ready for some alone time, romantic hotels like the boutique Mount Cinnamon — an intimate eco-resort with hillside villas overlooking world-famous Grand Anse Beach — await your arrival. The five-star Calabash Hotel also emphasizes personalized service: the beach resort has just 30 suites but plenty to keep couples active and happy, including tennis, sailing, diving, spa services, and two of Grenada’s best restaurants. The all-inclusive Sandals LaSource Resort and Spa lures honeymooners with Love Nest Suites with private infinity-edge pools steps from your bed, private candlelit dinners, couple’s massages, sunset cruises, and more.
