Picturesque Grenada has a calm, relaxed atmosphere. Famous for producing spices such as nutmeg, mace, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, cocoa, and rum, Grenada is known as the Spice Isle. The spice trees are fragrant and delightful waterfalls cascade down the island’s slopes. This mountainous island is covered with lush rainforest and Cocoa walks provide shade even during the hottest parts of the day. The coastline is punctuated by beautiful sandy beaches. The clear waters are dominated by extensive reefs. This lovely geography presents wonderful opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, water sports, and birdwatching.
L’Anse aux Epines on the South Coast boasts hotels, bars and a sailing marina. Grand Etang National Park and Forest Reserve, as well as having a museum, is home to forest plants and trees. A trail circles the Grand Etang itself, a crater lake. There are other trails leading to such sights as Mount Qua Qua and the Concord Falls. Grand Anse is one of Grenada’s best beaches and is great for water sports.
The pretty capital of St George’s is built on a natural harbour and its buildings are arranged on the slopes of a long-extinct volcanic crater, surrounded by forest. The South Western tip of the island has secluded beaches and coves. Grenada’s picturesque landscape will delight visitors with its many waterfalls and breathtaking views. One-ninth of its landmass comprises parks and natural wildlife sanctuaries.
