Even for the savviest travelers, there's a tendency to overlook those spots that are right under your nose. And the irony, of course, is that these can be the very best places.
Grenada unlike many other islands, nightlife here isn't confined to touristy carbaret shows. Here, you can slowly savor a cocktail drink while the sun dips into the sea, dance to the beat of a local soca band, or simply stroll along a deserted starlit beach.
Want a great place to mingle, soak in the atmosphere and enjoy a tipple of the good stuff? Try a local rum bar. Rum bars give you street cred. There’s no shortage of well-made and well-priced cocktails, but rums are what you are here for. Clarks Court and River Antoine Rum are classics. Before you get onto the neats, make sure you try Guinness Punch, though: over-proof rum, condensed milk, Guinness, spices- nutmeg of course and bitters, mixed and served over ice.
Bar snacks such as sticky, slow-cooked barbecue ribs are surprisingly good. Plaintain and breadfruit chips. Chicken roti is popular too.
Every Friday evening, the fishing village of Gouyave, up on the north-west coast, lays on a street party.
Bars opening times: from around 7pm to midnight.
Grooms Beach Villas and Resort is located a short 2 minutes walk to Dr Groom's beach with outdoor pool bar, restaurant and grill open for lunch daily 12pm-3pm.
