Spice Island Of Grenada

Aug 18, 2007
Famous for its fragrant spice trees and rare tropical flowers, the Spice Island of Grenada is a beautiful, picturesque island located in the Caribbean. Many people believe that its capital, St. George's is the nicest city around that part of the world. You will find markets, spice plantations, beaches, flamboyant hotels, coral reefs and much more to entertain you during your holiday in Grenada. Consisting of three different islands, Grenada, Carriacou and Petit Matininique, if you ever go on a package holiday tour to Grenada you will be spoilt for choice for things to do and see.

The fertile soil on 'Spice Island' makes it the perfect place for spices such as cinnamon, cloves, cocoa beans and even banana trees to grow. Virtually any tropical fruit you can think of is available in the countryside and generally, the island's air is filled with the smells of ginger, vanilla, almond and nutmeg.

If you take a trip to Concord Valley it is unlikely that you will be able to resist using up all the film in your camera. Home to three remarkable waterfalls known as the Concord Falls, this journey is the perfect combination of energetic exercise as you reach your target and absolute relaxation as you admire the views and enjoy a swim. The first stage is easily accessible by road whereas the other two can only be reached by foot. However they are well worth the hike and it is doubtful you will ever forget such stunning scenery. No package holiday tour to Grenada is complete until you have taken part in this day trip.

As the Spice Island of Grenada is one of the premier yachting centres in the region, sailing is an experience you definitely shouldn't miss out on. You can chose whether to go out on your own, with yachting crews and can even have lessons if you've never sailed before or fancy brushing up on your skills. If you prefer to sit back and leave the sailing to someone else, why not partake in one of the day or evening cruises available from various local tour companies. You can fall in love with the dolphins and whales or cruise up the Spice Island of Grenada's outer islands to Carriacou and Petite Martinique.

If you are looking for a thrilling and breathtaking moment to cherish forever, then taking a dive down to the enchanting depths of underwater life could possibly be the most magical moment of your package holiday tour of Grenada. You will be treated to some of the most exotic underwater scenery and abundant marine life in the Caribbean. The island is known for its intriguing walls and wrecks which you can explore alongside the placid sharks, turtles and lobsters.

West Indian and Creole flavours are combined to produce a unique cuisine that is distinctly Grenadian. Many of the island's restaurants are inspired by seafood and Creole cuisine and you will often find these are the specialities at most eateries. What gives the local cuisine such a unique and delicious taste is the use of some of the many spices that are grown on the island. You will often find that the island's primary spice, nutmeg, is infused into everything from sweets to ice cream.

There is so much more to do during a holiday in the Spice Island of Grenada from water-sports, sightseeing, eating out and day tours. There are also plenty of opportunities to mingle with the locals and learn about the culture of the island meaning that as well as having the time of your life, you will be learning along the way and enjoying a luxury package holiday tour in Grenada that will never be forgotten.
