Grenada is truly an idyllic place to unwind. The warmth and sincerity of the Grenadian people will make you feel at home very quickly. It is affectionately known as the spice isle of the Caribbean due to its wealth of natural spices such as cinnamon, saffron and most notably nutmeg, widely available to purchase, and of course enjoy in local cuisine. Most of our villas and resorts are located on the beaches of the south west of the island, whilst the north is covered with mountainous beautiful rain forest, well worth a visit.
The beaches tend to be quieter than other islands in the part of the Caribbean, with plenty of space and tranquility to relax on the sands or enjoy the calm Caribbean sea whilst swimming or sailing. Grenada is known as the best island in the eastern Caribbean for diving, with a plethora of wrecks, reefs, marine life and even an underwater sculpture park.
DINING, BARS AND NIGHTLIFE
The nightlife scene in Grenada is much quieter than other islands but there a few bars to enjoy some cocktails and live entertainment including the Dodgy Dock. The local cuisine has Creole influences and is delicious, a must try is Crab and Calloo and most restaurants will serve a mix of local and international cuisines. Olivers and La Sagrese are recommended and Gary Rhodes also has a restaurant the Calabash hotel.
