Transport in Grenada
Maurice Bishop International Airport in Saint George’s Parish is Grenada’s largest airport; air transportation is the fastest form of travel to the island and inter-islands flights are also available. Ferry services include daily services between islands and there is a high-speed ferry from Carenage to Carriacou. Alternatively motor boats operate a water-taxi service from main ports, Grand AnseBeac and St George’s. There are also a large number of yachts and boats available to charter. Car hire vehicles are available from local car rental firms in St George’s, Grand Anse and St Andrew’s. There are no speed limit signs and speed is dictated by the state of the road. Most main roads are in good condition but many are narrow and winding. To drive in Grenada a temporary local driving licence is required; these are available from most car hire companies and the traffic department at the central police station. An International Driving Permit is recommended, although not legally required. Grenada also has a central bus station located in the capital of St George’s and bus routes go to different parts of the island. Taxis tend to be the most efficient means of transport and they are available from airports and most hotels.
