Grenada is less spoilt then some of its neighbours and is rich in local flare.
Alexandra, Original Traveller
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.
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.

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.
