Welcome to the ‘Spice Isle’ – Grenada. Fragrance of Cinnamon & Nutmeg waft through the air as you weave through the islands spice plantations, untouched rainforest, beautiful mountains and unspoilt beaches. Spend lazy days relaxing in a hammock sipping run punch, follow hiking trails through the forest to discover secluded waterfalls or explore historic forts.
The capital of St George where colourful homes, Georgian buildings and the 18th century Fort George overlook the narrow Carenage Harbour.
Less developed than some of its neighbouring islands, Grenada captivates visitors with low rise boutique hotels, lush rainforest opening onto white sand beaches lapped by the crystal waters of the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean.
Head to one of the islands thermal springs, spice plantations, Volcanic crater lakes or the breath-taking Seven Sisters falls if you wish to get out and do some exploring. Other notable attractions include the West Indies Cricket Heritage Museum which depicts the history of West Indian Cricket and homes artefacts dating back to the 1800s. Also, the Carriacou museum which is a restored cotton mill where you can see Amerindian trinkets and portrays the history of the British and French occupation.
There is more to Grenada’s culinary talent than spices. The cuisine on the island will stimulate your taste buds in the best conceivable way. Try the national dish oildown - a stew of meat, breadfruit, vegetable with dumplings that is steamed in coconut milk until its dry.
