One of the main attractions i’d read about before visiting Grenada was the Seven Sisters Waterfalls. It popped up on all the top 10’s i’d read and from the pictures id seen it looked amazing. It also seemed like fate to be visiting waterfalls called Seven Sisters. If you’ve read my site before you’ll know i have a girlfriend called Esther and she’s half Grenadian (although you’d never guess it from her ultra pale skin … the other half of her is Irish). Apart from being pale skinned she is also number six of seven sisters, her little sister Hannah who also went to Grenada with us is number seven. Following me here? Can you see where i’m going with this one?
- The waterfall we hiked to see n Grenada was called the Seven Sisters waterfalls. My girlfriend is part Grenadian and one of seven sisters.
- The pools we swam in were numbers six and seven. Esther and Hannah who I was with are number six and seven of the seven.
Crazy right? I know. What are the freeekin chances?
The Seven Sisters Waterfalls
Anyways so the cost of entering the park to go see the waterfalls was just $5 XCD each (£1.20 ish), an absolute bargain. That charge also got you a free walking stick which on the day we went was much needed. The rain had made mince meat out of the path and we were slipping and sliding all over the shop. We escaped without major injury, but the hike was hard going in parts, especially in the heat. The was a bar a little way in, but it was shut on the day we visited *sigh.
The hike to the waterfalls was one of the best things we experienced whilst on Grenada, its not all that clear where the falls are located. Look out for a sign saying St Margarets falls.
Like all the other waterfalls on the island, there are teams of divers located at the falls who do backflips for a bit of cash. They seemed nice enough and another tour group behind us lapped up the spectacular dives. We on the other hand were slowly coming to realise that not wearing swimwear was very foolish. Not wanting to miss out I jumped in anyway, I would just be wearing wet cargo shorts for the rest of the day. The water itself was freezing, but it felt sooooo good on my burns. I could easily have spent the day at the falls, but more and more tour groups starting turning up once it hit a more reasonable hour and so after some swimming and posing we made the long hike back to meet Jenny and Ryan at the car.
Want to know what happens next? Want to cheat and skip to the end? Do you just want to look at pretty pictures of Grenada rather than read about how many beers I drank. Well here you go then, here are all the links to all my Grenada posts, all of them. You dont ask for much do you!?
