Grenada Tourism Minister Lennox Andrews predicts strong visitor numbers in the coming months. 

The tri-island state’s mission is focusing on sustainable growth

Grenada tourism continues to recover strongly after the pandemic, Andrews said, with new hotels and increased flights.

Grenada is forecasting nearly 32,000 visitors in 2023, a 25% increase on 2019.

Hotels due to open include Six Senses and Intercontinental.

The Government is pushing sustainability with 10% of the tourism budget being diverted into community projects.

Among the measures is the banning of polystyrene and single-use plastics.

Andrews said: “We must ensure higher visitor numbers are accompanied by a sustainable approach to protecting our islands.”
