Luxury Caribbean Holidays - Grenada
“The Spice of the Caribbean”
Grenada overwhelms every single one of your senses, and you ask yourself if you were ever really this alive.
Discover an island where the scent of spices, fruit and flowers intermingle to awaken your senses, even before you raise your head from your pillow each morning.
And before you put your head back down each evening, you look up and see more stars than you can count, shining bright and vivid, dancing to the chorus of tree frogs sending each other promises of everlasting love.
Just 12 degrees north of the equator, bathed in the cooling Trade Winds, Grenada lies sleepily shrouded in a canopy of greenery. So quite and tranquil, it seems to many as if time has almost forgot she is here.
Then there are the people, so charming and friendly, you feel they must have met you somewhere before.
Famed for forests fragrant with cinnamon, allspice, cocoa and nutmeg, Grenada, a former British colony, offers charming architecture, 300-year-old churches and narrow streets.
Fort George and Fort Frederick date back to the 18th century.
Restaurants and resort centres line Grand Anse Beach, a popular 2-mile stretch of sand. South and East of Grand Anse, other beaches line the coves of L’Anse Aux Epines, an upscale residential community.
Head north to view Grenada’s rich agricultural and natural bounty.
At Gouyave visit one of the nutmeg-processing stations or stop at the Grenada Chocolate Company, a tiny solar-powered cottage factory featuring antique machinery.
The nearby historic River Antoine Rum Distillery is the Caribbean’s only water-powered mill still operating.
Visit the plantation home Morne Fendue, a 1908 structure that serves lunch and now has guest rooms.
Sailing has long been an integral part of Grenada’s lifestyle. Visitors can hire charter companies for day excursions or weekly charters with crew or bareboat.
Game fishing is big sport here and late January heralds the three-day Spice Island Billfish Tournament.
Hiking trails with breathtaking scenery challenge walkers of all ability levels.
Savour the delights of Bay Gardens, one of many well-kept botanical sites.
Active visitors can also sign up for whale- and dolphin-watching expeditions, and can kayak in the quiet waters of Egmont Harbour.
