    Discover Grenada

    Grenada, the Spice Isle, offers a more tranquil and certainly off-the-beaten-track alternative to many of the larger Caribbean islands. Visitors to Grenada are drawn by the uncrowded landscapes, secluded beaches with great snorkelling and diving, In the eastern Caribbean, there’s a number of islands including Barbados and St Lucia, known collectively as the Windward Islands and the most southerly of these is Grenada. Just 21 miles long by 12 miles wide, it’s a 10.5 hours to get there from the UK (often with a touchdown in St Lucia). Affectionately termed the Spice Isle which denotes its history of trading, the air is still filled with warm scents of nutmeg and cinnamon which grow abundantly. Of volcanic origin, Grenada has 45 powdery white and black sand beaches lapped by the most azure of cerulean waters; perfect for sunbathing, swimming, all manner of watersports including great snorkelling and arguably the best Caribbean wreck diving. In the interior the fantastic year-round climate and the laid back friendly warmth of the Grenadians.

    Discover a Tropical Paradise

    There are rainforests, gushing waterfalls and high lakes in volcanic craters whilst, at the coast, there are mangroves rich in birdlife, sheltered beaches in the south and a wilder windswept Atlantic northern coast. Wildlife includes the mona monkey, agouti, armadillo and mongoose and, unique to the island, there’s the Grenada dove and endangered hook billed kite. The friendly Grenadians deserve special mention for their vibrant calypso, colourful carnivals, plus their passion for rum and tantalisingly tasty, spicy cuisine.

    History

    Known as Camerhogue by native Arawak and Caribs, the island was re-named Granada by Spanish sailors as the lush green hills reminded them of Andalucia. Later the French called it La Grenade and, in 1783 when it was ceded to the British under the Treaty of Versailles, there was another name change to Grenada. Now part of the Commonwealth, it became a crown colony in 1877, gaining full independence in 1974.
