Written by Jo Ann Wrobel on her recent trip to Grenada
Looking for something different this winter? After recently returning from Grenada I think that the island might be just the unique holiday destination that many Canadians are looking for this winter!
Grenada; nicknamed ‘the Spice of the Caribbean’ boasts warm people, unspoilt landscapes and miles of white sand beaches. Although there is no shortage of beautiful beaches in Grenada – Grand Anse Beach has been voted #1 in the world by Conde Nast.
Grenada is so much more than just tranquil sheltered beaches. Dive and snorkel enthusiasts can explore the underwater sculptures and reefs abundant in underwater sea life. If you prefer life above the water you can experience a spectacular sunset while skimming through the sea by sailboat.
Landlubbers can explore the picturesque rainforest, stunning waterfalls and lush mountaintops on an organized island tour that includes island history and visits to a nutmeg processing station and rum distillery. Looking for a little adventure? Join a guided hiking or dune buggy tour for off road fun.
From luxury resorts to intimate villas Grenada boasts a wide array of options offering all-inclusive or optional dining plans. Whatever your style Grenada offers some succulent seafood. Try the popular crab backs or maybe a scrumptious lobster so large that it is a challenge you to eat it all. The spices of the island are infused into both food and drink. You will want to bring the local spices home to inspire your culinary creations in your own kitchen.
Pure Grenada is not just a phrase. Pure Grenada is the warm Grenadian way of life, the unspoilt beauty and tranquility of the island and the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.
