Grenada, West Indies

  • Sample some of the strongest (138- and 150-proof) rum you’ll ever taste at the River Antoine Rum Distillery, open since 1785.

  • Head to the Belmont Estate, a chocolate and spice plantation, to learn more about Grenada’s rich history.

  • Make time during your stay to try “oil down,” Grenada’s unofficial national dish: a hearty, one-pot stew of vegetables, meats, and coconut milk.

 

OVERVIEW


The Panoramic Spice Isle

Sleepy Grenada is a treasure of the West Indies. Nicknamed the Spice Island, Grenada is known for exporting nutmeg and cinnamon and notes of these spices fill the air. During your stay you'll happen upon historic forts, cascading waterfalls, gardens, and a kaleidoscope of beaches with sands ranging from powdery white and pink to striking volcanic black. The 18th-century capital city of St. George’s is regarded as one of the prettiest harbor towns in the West Indies. Stroll the hilly streets and admire the colorful, Georgian colonial architecture. The island’s most famous beach is Grand Anse Beach, a two-mile-long stretch of sugary sand near St. George’s. If you’re looking for a more secluded beach, head to Levera in the northeast.
