    Grenada

    Major Tourist Attractions: Bay Gardens, Sendall Tunnel, Grenada National Museum, Queen's Park

    Known as the Isle of Spice, it’s said that sailors can smell the sweet aroma of Grenada before it can be seen. The island grows more spices per square mile than any other place on the world.

    Known as the Isle of Spice, it’s said that sailors can smell the sweet aroma of Grenada before it can be seen. The island grows more spices per square mile than any other place on the world; cloves, cinnamon, ginger, turmeric, cocoa, and mace grow in abundance. But Nutmeg is king on Grenada, of which it produces one third of the world’s supply.

    Grenada is located in the southeastern Caribbean, just north of Trinidad and Venezuela. Grenada is the largest island of the 3-island nation that is known as Grenada collectively. Carriacou and Petite Martinique, which are located to the north, are the other two islands of the country.

    The country is volcanic in origin, creating dramatic landscapes of great beauty and variety. Ecosystems range from mountainous tropical rainforest to dry lowlands to coastal mangroves. Waterfalls and streams search for the sea, while the coast is carved with beautiful bays and beaches. The beaches are just as varied as the rest of the main island of Grenada, travelers will find them covered in white, tan, and black volcanic sand.

    St George’s, the largest town, has one of the most picturesque waterfronts in all of the Caribbean. Stone buildings, forts, and houses of all colors blend into a hilly, well-protected harbor.

    Carriacou is a true off-the-beaten-path Caribbean island. With an atmosphere a notch or two slower then Grenada Island, the small island boasts endearing locals and an eclectic village life as well as beautiful scenery. If Carriacou sounds too busy, head over to Petit Martinique where even less happens – and the locals like it that way.

    Here is a look at some of the adventures that await travelers to Grenada:

    • Go to the Beach - The most popular being Grand Anse, its pristine white sand stretches for nearly two miles and it offers stunning views in every direction.
    • Soak in a few Waterfalls - The Royal Mount Carmel falls is very dramatic, cascading down from over 70 feet. Concord Falls is a collection of three falls that have pools that are ideal for swimming.
    • Sip on Rum - Visit the Clarks Court and Westerhall distilleries to see how Caribbean rum is made.
    • Explore the Rainforest - Grenada’s lofty interior offers a series of breathtaking hikes including the demanding climb to Mount Qua Qua.
    • Dive the underwater sculpture gardens that honor those lost in the slavery trade while crossing the Atlantic.
