Grenada is one of the most southerly of the Windward Islands, known as the 'Spice island' of the Caribbean due to the fragrant scent of nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, and vanilla. A holiday to Grenada allows visitors to experience the laid-back atmosphere and meet friendly locals who have perfected the art of 'limin' - chilling out, Caribbean style. With a superb range of hotels and resorts including all-inclusive and self-catering options, visitors can enjoy a luxury holiday to Grenada or a more affordable getaway.
Apart from the pleasures of the beach, there is plenty to occupy your time in Grenada thanks to the varied landscape and tourist attractions. A holiday in Grenada allows you to come face to face with true Caribbean spirit, as tourism is much quieter than on some of the other islands. Families will appreciate all that Grenada has to offer including water sports, boat trips and river tubing. It's worth taking time away from the beach to drive up into the mountains and enjoy the cool experience of a walk in the rainforest where you can visit beautiful mountain rivers and waterfalls which cascade down through the lush forest greenery. Alternatively try the new sightseeing train in St. George, a comfortable and flexible way to discover this pretty capital, or visit the Belmont Estate for a tour of a traditional cocoa plantation.
There are a number of low key yet lively clubs in St George's, Grenada's one time colonial Georgian capital, where you can dance to a local island band playing reggae or calypso.
Grenada has some of the best facilities for diving in the Caribbean, with dive instruction available locally. You can snorkel from the beach or drift over coral reefs watching the fish, or for more advanced divers there are wrecks to explore and even an underwater volcano.
A visit to Grenada wouldn't be complete without a sighting of the sea turtles which nest along some of the island's sandy beaches - we often get reports from our friends at Maca Bana when the turtles are coming ashore.
