                                      Car: Necessary

                                      Zingiber is a beautifully situated house overlooking La Sagesse Bay and Nature Reserve with views of the stunning palm fringed sandy beach.

                                      Access to the beach can be made by car (which takes about 5 minutes) or by a 15 minute stroll along the ridge road down to the bay.

                                      The whole area offers unspoilt natural scenery with lush vegetation and hidden bays perfect for exploring or beach combing as well as birdwatching.

                                      The beach is quiet and peaceful especially midweek and gently slopes into the sea so offers safe swimming. Now and again you can get some great waves further along the bay which are fantastic for boogie boarding and body surfing. Kayaks can be hired to explore the bay and get close to the 'whale rock.'

                                      The bar/restaurant on the beach provides delicious simple fresh food including locally prepared soups, salads, fish, steaks burgers and creole dishes from breakfast through to dinner.

                                      There is also a local cricket ground where support is always welcome if there is a game on.

                                      Grenada Marina/Boatyard is only a 5 minute drive away and offers a beach bar with light meals. Its worth a visit if you are interested in looking at the huge yachts and boats being repaired or stored out of water.

                                      Le Phare Bleu is another local restaurant (10-12mins drive) offering lunch and evening meals with a view over a boat marina. (Take your swimming gear if you are visiting in the day as you can swim out and jump in from the mast in the sea!)

                                      Other fantastic bars and restaurants including our favourites, The Dodgy Dock at True Blue, The Aquarium, Port Louis, The Beach House, Umbrellas and La Boulangerie to name a few are slightly further afield but no more than 25 minutes by car.

                                      As the island is only 21 miles by 12 miles nowhere is far in Grenada.

                                      The picturesque capital of St Georges with the prettiest harbour in the Caribbean as well as a wonderful market and plenty of history and heritage is only 20 minutes away. There is a fantastic carnival parade in August.

                                      Visit the Nutmeg Restaurant and watch the goings on in the working port or the cruise terminal for modern air conditioned duty free shopping.

                                      Grand Anse beach is a two mile stretch of white sand beach where many of the large hotels are situated. It is only 25 minutes away.

                                      The Island is full of wonderful places to visit including the interior rainforest and Grand Etang crater lake, swim in natural waterfalls or go river tubing and hiking. .

                                      There are lovely old plantation houses to visit for lunch some with historic museums as well as a fascinating nutmeg factory in Gouve with all wooden machinery. 'Fish Friday,' a feast of locally cooked freshly caught fish takes place in the streets of Gouve every Friday evening.

                                      Most of these attractions are within an hours drive of the house with only the turtles laying their eggs on Levera Beach in the north a bit further!

                                      Exciting adventure trips can be arranged - deep sea fishing, diving and snorkelling with PADI course available, hiking in the rainforest, full Island tours to suit your own tastes, trips to other islands and even dolphin and whale watching.

                                      Anything is possible on Grenada and all so easy to get to - just ask our very good friend and house manager, Bentley who'll do everything in his power to ensure your stay is truly memorable.
