Grenada Transportation



Maurice Bishop International Airport (GND) is located in the southwestern corner of Grenada in St. George's Parish, about 5 miles south of Grenada's capital, St. George. The terminal includes two runways and five departure gates and services many major airlines.


Immigration & Customs


With passport, return ticket and customs paperwork in hand, proceed to the immigration area. You will either proceed through the Red Channel or the Green Channel. Choose Red if you have goods to declare. For example, if you need to pay taxes on goods you are bringing into the country or need to fulfill customs formalities, enter the Red Channel. Choose the Green Channel if you do not need to pay taxes or do not have to fulfill customs formalities, and you are not carrying any forbidden or restricted goods. You will receive a customs form to fill out either on the plane or after landing. Fill these out, noting goods to be declared.


Getting to Your Hotel


Taxis and buses are available at the airport. A taxi ride from the airport to Coyaba Beach Resort should take about 15 minutes and cost around $16 USD. The buses can be quite crowded, so this may not be a good idea if you have luggage with you. Make sure a bus route to your resort is available before pursuing this option.


Getting Around Grenada


Taxis are available in St. George's and across the island. They can be expensive, however. Make sure you establish a fare for your trip before you get in the taxi. Suggested rates for taxi rides to different parts of the island are also available on the airport’s website. If you're in St. George's, you can take a bus, there's a central bus station, and the buses follow routes. Bus stops are spread throughout the city, so this can be a relatively inexpensive alternative to taxis. Water-based transportation is available in St. George's at the Carneage which is the dock on the harbor. Here, water taxis will take you from St. George's harbor to Grand Anse Beach, and ferries will take you to Grenada's sister islands, Carriacou and Petit Martinique.
