A small, volcanic island at the extreme southern end of the Caribbean chain, Grenada offers lovely beaches and interesting ecotourism. Often called The Island of Spice, it has historically produced about 1/3 of the worlds nutmeg.

One year after Hurricane Ivan, Grenada has experienced remarkable improvements in its tourism industry. These were structured to ensure that arriving visitors will see it immediately and continuously.

With over a sixth of the island preserved as parks and natural wildlife habitat, Grenada is a leader in ecotourism. Hiking the hills and mountains of the interior is excellent, with spectacular views of the surrounding Caribbean Sea and smaller islands. Diving and snorkeling are outstanding here, with extensive reef formations and numerous wrecks, including a 600 foot former cruise ship, available to please any level of diver. And more than 40 beaches offer a vast array of choices of location for sunbathing and enjoying Grenadas beautiful blue waters. Grenada also offers excursions to neighboring Grenadine islands, including Carriacou and Petite Martinique.

Not To Be Missed – In January, 2008, two major sporting events on Grenada occur back-to-back: the Spice Island Billfish Tournament, January 21-25; and the LaSource Grenada Sailing Festival, January 25-30.
