Grenada is one of the Caribbean’s jewels. With Olympian Kirani James winning the country’s first ever gold medal in London 2012, the island is firmly on the map.

The ‘Island of Spice’ is a highly desirable destination and is steeped in history as a rich source of spices. From clove and cinnamon, to ginger and mace, this heritage adds to the mystical quality of the island. Today, it remains the third largest supplier of nutmeg.

Grenada is perfect for a relaxing getaway or a romantic retreat with lots on offer to keep visitors occupied throughout their stay. Calm, sparkling waters, secluded white-sand beaches, national parks, an inactive volcano and the rainforest-adorned mountains create a magnificent landscape to explore. Restored plantations and ancient structures offer travellers a glimpse of former life on the island.

Cultural influences are a wonderful melting pot of African, French, British and East Indian, and they are reflected in the music; calypso, reggae and zouk. The island’s carnival brings all of this together every August, attracting visitors from around the world.

The cuisine on the island is, of course, influenced by the local spices, making the dishes utterly delicious. Mainstream fare and local delicacies are on offer at the many restaurants around Grenada, with many venues boasting stunning views.
