Islets of Granada, Granada

(4.2/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan your Islets of Granada visit and explore what else you can see and do in Granada using our Granada family vacation planner.
