Grenada consists of the main island of Grenada and two smaller islands which make for very good day trip or fishing and sailing destinations. The main island is known as the spice island as it has several nutmeg plantations on the slopes of its hills, and the scintillating fragrance of cloves, ginger and nutmeg hangs in the warm tropical air.

Although less developed than some of the other islands in the Caribbean, Grenada has beaches that can compete with any of those on other islands and they are less crowded. The mangrove plantations wander all the way down to the beautiful beaches. The mountain slopes are covered with lush rainforests and a clear crater lake.


Grenada is a reasonable size and offers visitors plenty to do. It is popular with the sailing community. It also boasts great diving spots with wrecks and reefs and an underwater sculpture park. Saint George the capital is a busy and pretty little town that dates back centuries. The unspoilt beauty, spicy foods and calypso music on these islands form a backdrop to an unforgettable holiday experience.
