Underwater Sculpture

Grenada, also known as ‘The Spice Island’ is famous for its spices. The island is the world’s second-largest producer of nutmeg and a significant producer of clove, ginger, cinnamon, and cocoa to foreign countries and other islands.  With its tropical climate, all year round the island is a big draw for tourists because of its beautiful scenery, fertile valleys, rainforests and pristine beaches which are second to none. Rated among the best in the world is the island’s Grand Anse Beach.

With its unspoiled landscape, Grenada is a picturesque and tiny, little island that has an abundance of beauty in the land and sea. The country’s sister isles, Carriacou and Petit Martinique are located in the Eastern part of the Caribbean, neighboring St Vincent in the North, and Trinidad and Tobago in the South.

The country is home to the world’s first underwater Sculpture Park; cascading waterfalls and world-famous ‘Spicemas’ which takes place in  August. The island has a large tourism-based, small open economy. Like other islands, the country has shifted from agriculture to tourism being the main currency earner, although its main agriculture export is still spices, nutmeg, and mace.

The capital, St. Georges is located on a horseshoe-shaped harbor, surrounded by a hillside of an old volcano crater. The island also boasts of beautiful scenery with fertile valleys, tropical rainforests together with a plethora of sandy beaches that are a big attraction to tourists.
