Known as the 'Isle of Spice', Grenada consists of three islands: Grenada, Carriacou, and Petit Martinique. They are located in the Eastern Caribbean at the southern end of the Windward Islands, only 100 miles north of Venezuela. Bordered by stunning beaches and dotted with picturesque towns, this verdant island has long been a major source of nutmeg, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, and cocoa.

Saskia, Will and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • Grenada possesses a bevy of beautiful, soft-sand beaches and a mountainous and lush rainforest-covered interior.
  • The lively Spice Isle is a perfect destination for fishing, sailing and hiking or biking through mountainous terrain.
  • The so-called Spice Island is far less developed for tourism than many of the other main Caribbean islands, and even the most popular beaches are usually quiet.

Grenada Holidays: The Detail

The capital, St. George', is widely held to be the loveliest city in the Caribbean. Its horseshoe-shaped harbour is surrounded by pastel rainbow coloured dockside warehouses and the red-tiled roofs of traditional shops and homes. Set sail for sister island Carriacou with its beaches of fine sand and natural harbours and you are near the heart of the Grenadines.

Did you know

  • Grenada is nearly as big as the Isle of Wight - offering lots to see and do.
  • In the 2012 Olympics 400-metre runner Kirani James won Grenada's first-ever Olympic gold medal.
  • Grenada was discovered in 1498 by Christopher Columbus.
  • It is famous for spices and is known as the "Spice Isle", being a major source of nutmeg, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, and cocoa.

Although the tourist industry has become more significant in recent years, the island's easy way of life and the friendly people recall an atmosphere that has long since vanished elsewhere.

Grenada offers all the types of yacht charter such as bareboat charter, skippered, crewed yacht charter, catamaran, sailboat and luxury yachts charter.
