Grenada Travel Guide
Located in the Caribbean and occupying the most southern of the Windward Islands is Grenada. The island is of volcanic origin and is divided by a central mountain range. Palm fringed, white sand beaches, the perfume of exotic flowers and the sparkling sea characterise this Grenadine island. Cultivator of the potent aphrodisiac Bois Band and leading exporter of nutmeg, it is no wonder Grenada is known as ‘Spice Country’. Beyond sugar and spice, the island has numerous waterfalls including Mount Carmel with two falls cascading over 70 feet, 45 palm-fringed beaches (several of them untouched) and a luscious green interior. When night falls, grind to the vibrant beat of Calypso and Reggae, let the gentle ocean breeze guide your midnight stroll or just retire to your hotel or bungalow, which are in abundance on this honeymoon island.
St. Georges, the capital, is widely held to be the most picturesque city in the Caribbean. Set on it's natural harbor, St.Georges has numerous outdoor restaurants, boisterous markets and fascinating shops, all contributing to the colourful picture of rainbowed dockside warehouses and the red-tiled roofs. For the top-notch beaches on the island, don`t miss Grand Anse and L`Anse aux Epines. Here you will find the whitest of white sand contrasting against the emerald sea.
Alive with traditional music, jovial people and perfumed air, Grenada is among the top destinations in the Caribbean.
For a little unspoilt nature and a little more privacy, check out Carricou and Petit Martinique, the other two links which make up the Grenadines.
