This week we visit: Grenada
When people talk about the Caribbean, one country that often gets left out is Grenada, a small country consisting of a number of islands, all full of their own unique charms. And while Grenada may not be as famous or as popular as some of its neighbors, it is a gorgeous little country with plenty to offer.
For instance, there is the capital, St. George’s, which is, although unofficially, often called the most beautiful port town in all of the Caribbean. With its colonial history, its narrow winding streets, its fort and its spice market, it truly is a special place on earth.
Then, of course, there is the Grand Anse Beach, which can easily compete with the most widely-lauded beaches of the Caribbean islands. It is basically everything you could possibly want in a beach – white sand, crystal clear water and palm trees. Pure Caribbean at its best.
Like elsewhere in the Caribbean, diving is a big thing in Grenada and there truly are some diving destinations that you just cannot miss. One of them is definitely The Molinere Underwater Sculpture Garden, designed by Jason deCaires Taylor and opened to public in 2006. Describing it is impossible. It is something you have to see for yourself.
For a real taste of Grenada nature, you can go and visit the Grand Etang National Park where you will easily find a tour to your liking. Just make sure the tour includes the visit to the Seven Sisters Falls, a series of waterfalls and pools that are just ridiculously beautiful.
For those who are more interested in food and sweets, Grenada also has a rich history of spices and chocolate, all of which you can get a taste of today, as well. There are a number of spice tours to take and the visit to The Grenada Chocolate Company, Ltd. is also a must.
