About Grenada

Named one of “The 20 Best Places to Visit in 2013” by National Geographic Magazine, Grenada is one of southern Caribbean’s best kept secrets. Grenada is highly- regarded for its unbridled hospitality and rich culture; abundance of lush rain forests, cocoa plantations and nutmeg factories offering an array of natural and agricultural discoveries. Small in size with just 100,000 inhabitants, Grenada is lovingly referred to as ‘Spice Isle’ for its history of being one of the top producers of spices in the world. The island’s position near the equator, just above South America, is credited for the island’s constant temperature of 80 degrees, diverse terrain that includes tropical rainforests, hot sulphur springs, mountainous topography, soaring waterfalls, natural protected reserves white sand beaches and Turquoise Ocean. Perhaps one of the island’s most intriguing attractions is the underwater sculpture covering 800 sq. meters and housing sixty-five sculptures. It is located two miles north of the capital St George on the west coast of the island, within an area designated a National Marine Park.
