With a unique combination of French and English culture, exotic flowers and rare fruits, a rich history of storytelling and well-seasoned foods, it’s no wonder Grenada is known as the “Island of Spice”. It’s also the gateway to the unspoiled cruising grounds of the Grenadines, which promises some of the best sailing anywhere in the Caribbean. Set your dreams in motion by discovering more about the beautiful West Indies.
The nation of Grenada is a chain of several islands including Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. The country gets its nickname as the Spice Isle because it is a leading producer of cinnamon, cloves, ginger, mace, allspice and nutmeg.
Beautiful beaches make up the coastline, including the 1.9 mile-long Grand Anse Beach in St. George Paris, which frequently appears in Top 10 lists of the world’s greatest beaches. The marine life is spectacular here and you’ll spot turtles, rays, dolphins and a spectrum of tropical fish.
From our base you can sail onwards to Union, Mayreau, Tobago Cays, Mustique, Port Elizabeth, Bequia, St. Vincent and St. Lucia.
It’s easy to get involved in local culture with festivals and carnivals ashore or on the water with sailing weeks and regattas. Whether it’s relaxing on a deserted beach, swimming the corals, hiking rainforests or exploring centuries-old forts, Grenada radiates Caribbean soul with a Calypso beat.
