Grenada Information


The air in Grenada is full of the fragrant aromas of spices and exotic fruits. It is known as the Isle of Spice and is the largest spice producer in the Western Hemisphere and the second-largest nutmeg producer in the world.

Here eco-tours are a major attraction. From its magnificent beaches, cataracts, and rain forest to its great fields of sugar cane and exotic spices, Grenada is ready for exploration and discovery.

When it comes to beaches, Grenada has 45 to choose from – busy strands full of action and secluded coves where you’ll rarely see another soul. Grand Anse is the island’s most famous recreational beach, two miles of white sand shaded by coconut palms and lined by luxurious villas and resort hotels.

The serene waters surrounding the island are just right for snorkelling and diving and boast a splendid variety of fish and more than 40 species of coral. Sailing is also a popular pastime – you can rent a Sunfish or Hobie Cat or join a group for a trip on a catamaran or speedboat.
