The popular destination of St. George’s is the capital of Grenada, a tiny Caribbean island with a long history of British and French rule. The town is a gateway to a volcanic island, with a jaw-dropping landscape of crater lakes, rainforests, coral reefs and white-sand beaches.

Granted independence in 1974, it is famous for its cinnamon, mace, nutmeg and vanilla plantations, and Grenada is affectionately known as the ‘Spice Island’.[ReadMoreMob] The aromas literally fill the air and make for a most remarkable experience when visiting the island.  

The town is located on a stunning horseshoe-shaped harbour. At its centre, the 18th century Fort George offers panoramic views of the island and nearby Fort Matthew, formerly a battleground and an asylum, boasts a network of underground tunnels. The Grenada National Museum hosts exhibits about the region’s history, including the plantation economy and the whaling industry.

Mount Qua Qua – one of Grenada’s central mountains – provides impressive views from its 2370ft peak. Its hiking trails pass Grand Etang Lake and the cooling temperatures at altitude provide a soothing respite from the island's heat.
