Its panoramic views, numerous cultural and historical attractions, and pristine environment help make picturesque Grenada one of the Caribbean’s best-kept secrets.
Blending a rich heritage with amazing natural beauty, Grenada greets its guests with the enticing, exotic aroma of cloves, vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon – all befitting a place popularly known as “The Spice Island”.
Situated in the lower extremes os the Windward Islands, the island is packed so full with breathtaking vistas and lush plants that the original Spanish colonists called it “green hills,” after their own city of Granada, Spain. Today, visitors can still enjoy all the same thriving rainforests, cascading waterfalls, blue lagoons, coral reefs, and secluded beaches that enchanted European colonists centuries ago.
Dive into the surf – or under the surf – at more than 40 discrete black and white sand beaches along the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. Stunning reefs and historic shipwrecks await the scuba diver, and sport fishing, kayaking, and sailing amid azure waters are also popular diversions.
Perhaps the most picturesque seaport in the Caribbean, the capital city of St. George is a colorful mix of 18th-century French and Georgian English architecture set against a backdrop of steep hills. Cobblestone streets wine past historic churches and marketplace to the busy harbor.
St. George is also the perfect place to sample a distinctly Grenadian cuisine that blends African, French, Spanish, and Indian influences. Local delicacies and fresh seafood – seasoned with the spices that the island is famous for – are the bedrock of some of St. George’s best eateries, many of which also provide panoramic harbor views.
