St. George's , Grenada

Caribbean Cruise Ports of Call - Grenada. St. George's -

Dubbed "Spice Island" because of the impressive amounts of nutmeg, cloves, mace, cinnamon, ginger and cocoa grown here, Grenada's dense forests and colorful markets have long attracted visitors to its fragrant shores. Covering this volcanic island are cascading rivers and lush rainforests, plus centuries-old spice plantations and rum distilleries still using traditional methods of production.

With a coastline indented by protected bays and beaches, and a rugged mountainous interior with waterfalls, Grenada appeals to adventure seekers whether they're armed with scuba gear or hiking boots. Because of Grenada's remarkable topography, the island experiences climate changes according to altitude.

The pretty, pastel town St George's is often referred to as one of the most stunning Caribbean harbor cities. The yellow, pink, tangerine, lilac and white 18th-century French and Georgian English architecture of Grenada's capital presents as colorful a mix as the busy market street of Carenage. This center of activity where schooners unload their produce is packed with stalls selling exotic fruit, vegetables and of course, spices.

The azure Grand Etang Lake and nature reserve in the center of the island is situated in the crater of an extinct volcano. Walking through the breathtaking scenery is a chance to see local spice trees and rare tropical flowers that make up the rainforest. The well-tended trails wander around the area's stunning waterfalls, including the rushing Annandale Falls.

There are 45 beautiful beaches in Grenada, and all of them are public property. Grand Anse Beach is a smooth 2-mile expanse of white sand curving around the bay, and a favorite of locals and visitors. Located on the western side of the island, the bay is sheltered and calm, making it an ideal spot for water sports.
