Getting Around in Grenada
 
 
 

By Water

Colourful motor boats operate a water-taxi service between Grand Anse Beach and St George's. There is a high-speed ferry service from the Carenage (Grenada) to Carriacou. There is also a daily ferry service from Grenada to Carriacou, Petite Martinique and back. A large number of yachts and boats are available to charter. Arrangements can be made via the Grenada Board of Tourism.

By Road

Most main roads are in good condition but they are narrow and winding. Travelling anywhere by car takes a long time. Traffic drives on the left and drivers constantly use their horns.

Bus

These are cheap but slow. They operate a regular schedule from 7 am-7 pm, Monday to Saturday. There is no bus service on Sundays. The main bus terminal is located at the west end of Granby Street. On Grenada, buses run to Annadale, Concorde, Grand Anse, Grand Etang, Grenville, Gouyave, La Sagesse, Sauters, Victoria and Westernhall. On Carriacou, buses run from Hillsborough to Harvey Vale and Windward. Minibuses run between Hillsborough, Windward and Tyrell Bay.

Taxi

Taxis are the most efficient means of transport. They are available from the airport, the Carenage and most hotels. Mandoo's Taxi Service is a fully insured sightseeing and taxi service, recommended by the Board of Tourism.

Car Rental

Vehicles are available to rent in St George's, Grand Anse or St Andrew's from local car rental firms. Credit cards are not always accepted by car hire companies. Some rental companies impose a minimum age of 21. Speed limits are not posted; speed is dictated by the state of the road; most are narrow and winding. Car rental firms will provide details of what to do if you break down. Some firms have a minimum rental period of three days during peak periods.

Documentation: A temporary local driving licence is required and available for a fee from the traffic department at the central police station on Carenage or from most car rental companies, on presentation of a valid driving licence. An International Driving Permit is recommended, although it is not legally required.
