This is a holiday for the discerning traveller in the Caribbean, known fondly as the Isle of Spice, being situated 12º north of the Equator and therefore well within the tropics. It is a truly special place to visit – the warmth and the charm of the islanders will capture your heart and your imagination. You will come home feeling relaxed and refreshed.
Grenada is undoubtedly the prettiest of the Caribbean islands, with many varieties of flowering shrubs and trees. Its capital, St George’s has long enjoyed the reputation of being the prettiest harbour in the Caribbean, alluring by day and sparkling by night, it has retained a certain charm and character now lost by many of its counterparts. Visit any of the hilltop restaurants or bars and you will see for yourself how the city sparkles like a thousand diamonds at night. For the explorer there are many attractions, including rum distilleries, sugar mills, plantations, areas of archaeological interest, towns and villages, mountains and beaches. There are also waterfalls, a tropical rain forest and a nature reserve, not to mention some of the finest unspoilt beaches in the Caribbean, most of which are usually fringed with sea grape and coconut trees to shield you from the tropical sun.
