History: Take a captivating journey down to Spice Isle, the multi-island nation of Grenada. Here, you can immerse yourself in a truly unique Caribbean landscape. With dramatic hills, luscious forests and a stunning Caribbean Sea blue backdrop to match. You can visit the three major islands that make up Grenada: Grenada, Carriacou, and Petit Martinique. Each island has unique offerings that are sure to delight you. Having been a member of the French Empire and the British Empire before gaining its independence in 1974, Grenada has a varied and dramatic history that has shaped it into the beautiful nation that it is today. Whether you want to explore the beautiful forest and other natural wonders of Grenada or instead splay out on the white sandy shores of the famed Grand Anse Beach, you are going to truly enjoy your retreat to Spice Isle
THINGS TO DO
“If you’re looking for a beach that is a little more active that the relaxing and peaceful Grand Anse Beach, then head just a little south to BBC Beach. You still get the same white sands and bright blue waters, but you’ll also be able to enjoy the ocean water park with inflatable attractions, such as slides and obstacle courses. There are also a few bars where the adults can get some refreshments.
The Caribbean is known for rum. Grenada is known for spices. Put two and two together and you are going to find some of the best rum you can. At Clarke’s Court Rum, you can take a tour of the distillery, learn about the history of the company and the rum making process, and even get to taste a couple of varieties and learn how to make your own rum drinks!”
“When you fly to Grenada, you will land at the Maurice Bishop International Airport on the main island, Grenada. However, given Grenada’s relatively small size and distance from many major cities or islands, chances are you will be catching a connecting flight from another island on Liat Airlines.
However, if you’re lucky enough to catch a direct flight from North America, your best options will be either American Airlines or Delta Airlines. If you’re traveling from Europe, your best option will be British Airways or Virgin Atlantic. You can also catch a local flight to Carriacou, the second largest island of Grenada.
There are plenty of cruise options available to those who are looking to travel a more leisurely way. Your best options for getting to Grenada via a cruise ship would be joining a Royal Caribbean itinerary or a Norwegian Cruise Line itinerary.”
