They call Grenada the Spice isle for the scents of ginger and cinnamon that roll down from the volcanic ridges around Mount Saint Catherine. Fertile lands there have been sprouting crops of wild coffee, bananas, citrus fruit and nutmeg for centuries, adding a waft of exotic aroma to the sultry air drifting across the beaches and the sea. Along the coast are beaches lined with lush tropical green hills.
The fort-topped capital of St. George’s oozes colonial history with an edge of Caribbean pizzazz – think multi-coloured houses between stone-faced Georgian style buildings. Elsewhere, the forests hide gushing waterfalls and shimmering crater lakes, while mountains peak over age-old plantation houses. There really are loads of reasons to holiday in Grenada!
