Please take advantage of your location. Our apartment is at a great location to start your walking tour to the heart of the town of St. George's (capital of Grenada) and surrounding areas such as the carenage. You will experience the picturesque setting of the town and see historic buildings and structures. Although it will take about 10 to 15 minutes to walk to the heart of St. Georges, allow enough time for a casual stroll via the scenic route and time to browse around. We suggest 2 to 3 hours in order to take in several sites.
A walk to our famous Grand Anse beach from Archibald avenue is much longer than the walk to the heart of St. George's. We suggest that you drive yourself or take a taxi or experience the bus ride. Transportation will take about 12 minutes to the Grand Anse area. If however, you are up to the challenge of walking, allow about an hour and a half to 2 hours for your walk. The walk to Grand Anse is easy to navigate along the main road. Just watch out for the busy traffic. Be safe!
