Social Life in Grenada

Behavior

The Grenadians are conservative in most aspects of their lives and this is best seen in their behaviors, dress, and dining etiquette. They tend to dress and act conservatively, much of which is based on their deeply rooted Christian faith.

As a visitor to Grenada try to follow the lead of the locals by dressing conservatively (see below for details), dining in the local etiquette (see our Grenada Dining & Food Page), and avoid sensitive conversation topics, such as politics, finances, and business unless initiated by your local counterpart. Also try to avoid being loud, rude, showing off wealth, or getting noticeably drunk in public.

Dress

The people of Grenada wear western-styled clothing, but can be somewhat conservative in their dress. Dresses are common for women and men tend to prefer shorts or pants and a shirt. Although showing arms and knees is not a problem in Grenada, most people prefer to dress with longer pants and tight-fitting clothing is rarely worn outside the beaches.

As a visitor to Grenada, you are free to wear western-styled clothing, but try to bring a variety of clothing as the weather and occasion should heavily dictate your dress choice. Swimsuits are common on the beach, but these outfits, and others that show a lot of skin, are considered inappropriate anywhere else. Restaurants, even those on the beach seem to prefer more modest clothing be worn. In churches and other more formal settings long pants or dresses and slong-sleeved shirts are required. Lastly, sunbathing naked or women sunbathing topless is restricted in Grenada.
