The Lengthy Beaches of Grenada Bring the Leatherbacks to Shore

If your plans include a quick trip over to Grenada in August, you are in luck, because it’s the last month of leatherback season. Every two years, these incredible creatures find their way back to the stunning shores of Grenada Island to lay their eggs.

These gentle giants travel across the lengths of the entire ocean just to build their nests here in the Caribbean. Unfortunately, the leatherback turtles are on the endangered list, and even though they can lay around 100 eggs when they nest, only about 1 in 1000 of their little hatchlings will make it to adulthood. Come witness the beauty that these creatures manifest in the middle of the night by scheduling a Leatherback Turtle Tour for a once in a lifetime experience. If a lazy beach day is calling your name, you’ll most likely get a chance to see these turtle nests on the shoreline, just be mindful to be careful around these delicate sandy miracles. You may even get to spot a hatchling!
