Port Focus – Grenada

Quick Facts:

The three islands of Grenada (Grenada the largest, Petite Martinique & Carriacou) are located in the Eastern Caribbean.

Average temperatures range from 24C/75F to 30C/87F

Better known as the ‘Spice Island’ for their exports of cinnamon, cloves, ginger, mace, cocoa and nutmeg.

Grenada’s capital, St George’s has one of the most beautiful horseshoe shaped harbours in the Caribbean. The town is nestled into a hillside dotted with pink tiled roof buildings.

Grenada is doable in a day with plenty of wonders to explore. This Volcanic Island has plenty to offer, from cascading rivers and waterfalls, lush rainforest, sulphur springs and Lake Antoine.

If you want to explore St George’s, the best way is by foot. A great place to start is the popular Market Square which is the heart of Grenada’s commercial centre. The National Museum is one of the oldest structures in St George’s, housing artefacts and a rich collection of Grenada’s history. Christ of The Deep Monument stands in the harbour commemorating the courage of the Grenadian people who saved the lives of passengers onboard an Italian cruise line which caught fire and sank in the harbour in 1961. Other places of interest include the Roman Catholic Cathedral and the Parliament Building. For great views head to Fort George, Grenada’s oldest fort and is the centrepiece of St George’s skyline, explore the dark tunnels and climb to the top to see the cannons for a birds-eye view!

The nearest waterfall is just a short drive from the capital. No need to hike as Annandale Waterfall has a paved path. For those who enjoy something a little more strenuous a pre booked excursion would be ideal to visit other beauty spots on the island.
