This beautiful Isle of Spice got its name from the many spices it produces including nutmeg and mace, both of which are depicted on our national flag. Pronounced ‘Grenayda’ it is the most southerly of the Windward Islands. It’s uniqueness is its lush rainforest and mountainous terrain tailored perfectly for physical activities such as hiking, cycling, river tubing and kayaking. There are also museums, gardens, historic forts, rum distilleries, cocoa and spice estates, lakes, hot springs and waterfalls to explore and discover.
For an island that is only twelve miles by twenty-one, it has around a dozen waterfalls, two nature parks, a tropical rainforest, eerie lakes within volcanic craters and spectacular views. What is more, Grenada has over twenty main beaches along its coastline and on the sister islands of Carriacou and Petit Martinique, lots of them hidden gems and each one like a picture postcard. They range from secluded bays and hideaways to beaches that stretch for miles and miles, perfect for sailing, diving, scuba diving and snorkeling.
It has been said that the harbour in St George’s, the capital, is the prettiest in the West Indies. I would argue that it is the prettiest in the world, but then I am biased. The harbour blends the architectural styles of the French and English and is set within a picturesque setting on steep hills overlooking the bay. Hurricane Ivan in 2004 caused major devastation across all three islands but we Grenadians are made of strong stuff and we bounced back. Today, business is back to normal and although some evidence can still be seen across the islands, it only adds to its rugged landscape and rich history.
So again, welcome to Grenada, enjoy your stay and your adventures with Grenada Tours!
