Grenada

Grenada Grenada is the perfect place to satisfy the senses, known as the Spice Island of the Caribbean and famed for its production of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and cloves. Fragrant trees and lush forest complement mountain lakes, while the capital of St George’s offers an attractive harbour from which you can enjoy stunning views. Grenada also boasts warm white sands met by clear waters, and from one of 40 glorious beaches you can relax in the sunshine to the sounds of tropical birds and steel bands. Take a moment to feel the gentle tropical breezes and plan a trip to one of Grenada’s Saturday markets. Grenada is at the southern end of the Windward Islands, and enjoys a pleasant year round average temperature of 30C (80F).

Information on Things to do

Bay Gardens - Located in St. Paul's, the gardens depict a true version of a tame tropical paradise.

Carenage - The Inner harbour is a perfect horseshoe shape and is the centre of marine activity in St. George's. Georgian buildings add character to the island.

Carib's Leap / Leapers Hill - Directly North of the town of Sauteurs is a steep cliff face that descends vertically for more than 100 feet. This is an important historic and cultural landmark where the Carib Indians chose to exterminate their race rather than surrender to the French Colonists in 1651.

Dougaldston Spice Estate - An historical monument to Grenada's past where most of the spices are grown and receive primary processing.

Dunfermline Rum Distillery - Located in St. Andrew's parish just 3 miles from Grenville. This privately owned distillery was built in 1797 and still operates with a watermill. Rum may be purchased on site.

Gouyave & Grenville Nutmeg Processing Stations - The largest nutmeg processing factories on the island. Grenada accounts for a third of the world's nutmeg supply.

La Sagesse Nature Centre - This once privately owned estate can now be enjoyed by all. Bird life, a mangrove estuary, three beautiful beaches, coral reefs amd cactus woodlands are yours to explore.

Market Square - Bustling, noisy and colourful, the market is the centre of activity in St. George's. It is the main site for buying and selling local produce; also the location of parades; political speeches and religious activities. This is also a good point to catch a mini-bus to other areas of the island.
