Uncovering authentic local finds and having experiences that make you feel like you’ve really connected with a place are important elements in ensuring an extraordinary vacation. We’re taking advantage of our partnership with Travel + Leisure to get their editors’ recommendations and insider tips on the places you will want to visit. Here are their picks for just one of the 150 destinations they covered.
Grenada Underwater Sculpture Park
This collection of sculptures in the shallow waters off the coast is accessible only to divers (though it can also be viewed from glass-bottomed boats). Sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor created the series of figures for the world’s first underwater sculpture park, which also serves as an artificial reef to promote conservation.
Grenada National Museum
A colorful past defines the 1704 building, set in the foundation of the old French army barracks. It went on to house three hotels, then a women’s prison until 1880. Opened as a museum in 1976, the collection includes a marble bathtub once owned by Empress Josephine.
Grand Anse Beach
Rainbows often arc across the sky and rainbow-hued fish wiggle below the gentle waters of this legendary two-mile stretch of sugary white sand. To rent beach chairs and umbrellas, walk to the center of the beach, where vendors set up shop. Despite the commerce, it’s a peaceful place to spend an afternoon.
