Known as the ‘Spice Island’, lush Grenada has more spices per square mile than anywhere else in the world. A beautiful jungle paradise of palm trees, bougainvillea, nutmeg and oleander; this sleepy island is also one of the friendliest in the Caribbean. A small three-island nation (with Carriacou and Petite Martinique), Grenada is the smallest independent country in the Western Hemisphere and will appeal to visitors looking for a luxury holiday in Grenada with stunningly beautiful surroundings opposed to the glitz and glamour of some of the other Caribbean islands.
Grenada lies south of the Caribbean’s hurricane belt, meaning most of the off-season storms pass it by. Offering a wonderful range of accommodation from relaxed all-inclusive retreats to fashionable boutique hotels, the island’s most luxurious resorts are located on it’s South-West coast offering the finest luxury holidays in Grenada. Here you’ll also find the world-famous Grand Anse beach, a stunning two-mile stretch of sand lapped by the gentle Caribbean waves.
Grand Anse is only one of Grenada’s many attractions. If you want to discover the island, then take time to explore the lush, mountainous interior where you’ll find free-flowing rivers, towering waterfalls and plenty of spice plantations. Also, consider a holiday near the small fishing villages along the Caribbean shore, going diving on the incredible offshore reefs, the largely undeveloped Atlantic coast and indulge in a wildly romantic place of crashing waves and stunning scenery.
Of course, a holiday to Grenada isn''t complete without a visit to the capital St George’s. Lying on the west coast of the island in a natural harbour backed by mountains, it is arguably the prettiest town in the Caribbean and a wonderful place to spend a few hours exploring, shopping and soaking up the colourful local culture.
