We were greeted in Grenada by blue skies and beautiful warm air, it was very exciting to be in the Caribbean for the first time.
Grand Anse Beach has the most beautiful soft white sand, which you can be on in minutes after arriving at your hotel, as most of the hotels line the beach. Grenada is quite under developed, and has a peaceful, laidback feel. The local people are so happy and welcoming, you will feel at home straight away.
All the hotels we visited offer a first class dining experience, you can even have your breakfast on the beach!
Moving on then to St Lucia, it felt quite different in that it so green and tropical. Our first hotel was situated between the two Pitons, offering amazing snorkelling from the beach, in an iconic location.
The weather in St Lucia in June can be mixed, we experienced hot, humid conditions, but between November and April, the climate is much drier, but still very warm.
Our last two nights were spent at Body Holiday, a sport and wellness resort on the West coast. It has an amazing concept of including a treatment in the huge spa every day of your stay. In addition to this, the meal plan is all inclusive, and even waterskiing is included in the cost. The standard of food and wine here was fantastic.
If you are looking for a special holiday experience, then Grenada and St Lucia definitely offer this in spades, either as a single island holiday or a 2 centre.
