Known as the "Island of Spice," Grenada is an island getaway you many never want to leave. Boasting rolling hills, rock-strewn terrain, pristine beaches and miles upon miles of unspoiled rainforest, this exotic island in the southeastern Caribbean Sea offers something for everyone.
The capital of Grenada in the British West Indies, St Georges sits on the south west coastline. Set on a horseshoe-shaped bay, the hillside of this pretty harbour city is dotted with whitewashed terracotta roofed buildings, churches and ancient forts. The city is famed for producing nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa, ginger and mace. Follow in the footsteps of ancient traders and thousands of modern day tourists as you take to the streets of Grenada’s vibrant capital city. Discover this beautiful destination with cheap all inclusive St Georges holidays from Ireland.
As with most places in the Caribbean, the beach is central to the culture and you’ll never be more than a short drive away from the crystal waters and white sands that the area is famed for. Beautiful Tamarind Bay is just down the road as are a wealth of other resorts and activities. Great Anse Beach is great for sunbathing, water sports and scuba diving. Take a hike to the Seven Sisters Falls and discover the Underwater Sculptures in Moliniere Bay. Uncover Grenada’s plantation history at the Dougaldston Estate or catch a game of cricket at the National Cricket Stadium. Jump on a jeep tour for a trip through the rainforest, head to St Andrew to enjoy an adventure of river tubing, or join a mountain bike tour.
History buffs will love taking an open top tour of the city. Take a seat and sip some rum punch as you wind your way through the picturesque city streets and all the way up to the French built Fort Frederick and Fort Matthew. The National Museum brings to life St George’s historical past. There are many walking tours arranged of St Georges within the capital, as well as excursions to Fort George, the Annandale waterfall, the working Rum and Spice Estates and to the Grand Etang Forest Reserve and lake.
Stroll along the Carenage inner harbour and discover gift shops, tasty seafood restaurants and colourful fishing boats bobbing in the bay, whilst the Sendall Tunnel through the hillside takes you to the bustling shopping malls of Bruce Street. St Georges Market Square is a hive of activity on Friday and Saturday mornings, with stalls selling brightly coloured tropical fruits, aromatic spices, and local handicrafts. The second week in August is when the colourful Spicemas Festival hits the streets of St Georges.
With so much stunning beauty everywhere you look, plus friendly people and a hospitable culture that continues to thrive, St Georges is a tropical paradise for one and all. Book your St Georges holidays & honeymoons packages from Ireland with Escape2.ie and make your memories last forever.
