If you fancy a spicy holiday, then Grenada is your place. It is ‘Spice Island’ where every scent of almond, ginger or nutmeg follows you. It is the home of cinnamon, cocoa beans and every tropical fruit imaginable.
It is a country lush full of panoramic landscapes, beaches, mountain ranges and thick rainforests. St. George’s is one of the Caribbean’s prettiest harbours, with its delightful coloured buildings and cobbled streets.
For those who prefer the walking holidays, there’s always the highland hike in the Grand Etang National Park. If you want time to cool off, take a refreshing swim at Annadale Falls as it cascades nine metres to a grotto surrounded by lush plant life. More exhilarating are the excellent standard of water sports available, and great bars and restaurants to follow on to after a big day’s activity.
Grenada is truly blessed with superb beaches and spectacular landscapes full of mountains, spice trees, waterfalls and rich cultural heritage.
For those who like to relax, the best beaches in the Caribbean beckon. The most famous beach is Grand Anse with its two mile stretch of powder fine white sand curving around a gentle bay. Before the beaches and the ample opportunity for scuba-diving and snorkelling draw you in, there is a great capital called St. Georges. It is built around the horseshoe shaped harbour, and it’s houses and dockside is like a kaleidoscope of colour. It’s a great place to shop and there are some great bargains to be had at the market. There are spice baskets, jams, syrups and arts and crafts. Dougaldston Spice Baucan in the North of the island is definitely worth a visit to see the various stages of spice processing in action.
Whilst you enjoy your food in the wide variety of restaurants, entertained by the local music, Grenada continues to be one of the well loved holiday destinations, guaranteed not to disappoint.
