Getting around in Grenada
There are few ways of getting around on the island.

Buses - Taxis - Water Taxis - Ferry - Car Rental
The best and cheapest Transportation is the public Mini Bus!

Our Buses drive around the entire island. 
It's a lot of fun, because as you drive, you are entertained by typical Caribbean music. On the buses, you will meet some of the friendliest and most helpful people in the entire Caribbean.

The Local Bus
The bus stops wherever it is needed. They drive regularly from Grand Anse to St. George's. The drive takes about 5 minutes, and costs only $1.50 EC per person.

In St. George's, the capital, there is a central bus station, where you can find buses to different parts of the island. 

The destinations are well marked at the terminal, and all of the busses carry stickers with their destinations. Of course, if you still feel a little lost, all you have to do is ask our friendly people for directions.
The drive that takes the most time, is the one to the town of Sauteurs, which is on the north coast of the island.
It is also the most expensive of all the trips and costs $5.00 EC.
The buses drive regularly on weekdays, from 7.00 am to 7.00 pm.
After regular hours, the buses charge higher rates.

Taxis
There are Hotel / Airport taxis which have fixed rates. All our taxis, mini buses & vehicles for hire are denoted by registration numbers beginning with 'H'.
  • Airport - Grand Anse $25.00 EC
  • Grand Anse - St. George's for up to 4. Pers $25.00 EC (10 US)
  • Private Tour $40.00 EC per hour
  • After 6.00 PM add $10.00 EC per trip.

The Street taxis provide good service, but it is a good idea to first find out how much they charge for the trip before entering the vehicle.

Water Taxis
These are colourful, wooden motorboats that run between Grand Anse Beach and St. George's harbour. It is a fast, fun way to get from the town to the Grand Anse Beach, even if occasionally you may get a little damp.
The cost depends upon the number of people making the trip.
For two people, it costs about $10.00 EC Of course,
if there are more than two passengers, the price per person goes down.

The Water Taxis can normally be found on the Carenage in town.
They are only on the beach when there is a cruise ship in the harbour.
