Known as the “Isle of Spice,” Grenada definitely leaves a flavor in your memories after a visit. There’s a reason for this, too… and it’s more than just the island’s role as one of the world’s most important producers of nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and allspice. Meshed somewhere in the tropical air, the winding rivers and the fertile soil — a result of the island’s volcanic origins — is a life energy of a distinctly south Caribbean sort. You’ll notice it at the beaches, hear it in the reggae and calypso, and taste it in rich local delicacies like a dish known as “oildown,” breadfruit, and fresh fish, of course.
- With plenty of room to bask in the sun or enjoy a cozy bar, Grand Anse Beach is a great place for a day at the beach.
- See birds, monkeys and more play in the treetops at Grand Etang National Park, situated in a rainforest.
- Hike to the Seven Sisters Waterfalls… for a post-hike swim.
- Visit the narrow streets — and amazing views — of Carenage. This little harbor offers great shopping, restaurants and bars.
