Islets of Granada, Granada

4.4
Islets of Granada represents an archipelago created when the nearby volcano's cone was strewn across the lake thousands of years ago. The small islands have since become covered with vegetation and are a haven for birdlife. Today many of the islands have houses, hotels, and shops on them. Take a boat tour or hire kayaks and sail around the area, observing monkeys and wading birds. You'll stop off at certain islets for refreshments and a swim. Consider bringing some fruit along to feed the monkeys. Using our world travel planner, Granada attractions like Islets of Granada can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
