The Islands of
Grenada is a Caribbean country comprising a main island, also called Grenada, and smaller surrounding islands. Dubbed the “Spice Isle,” the hilly main island is home to numerous nutmeg plantations. It’s also the site of the capital, St. George’s, whose colourful homes, Georgian buildings and early-18th-century Fort George overlook narrow Carenage Harbour. To the south is Grand Anse Beach, with resorts and bars.
In the far south of the Caribbean, Grenada offers an intoxicating taste of the Old Caribbean. Fragrant nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, and cocoa flourish in its fertile volcanic soil, earning it the name, “the Spice Island,” and the island’s rich culture makes it a top choice for tourists looking for an authentic Caribbean experience.
Grenada will also charm you with its classic Caribbean beauty. Lushly-cloaked mountains, rainforests, plantations, and colorful seaside villages provide picturesque photo ops, and you can bask on beautiful beaches framed by frangipani and flamboyant trees.

EXPLORE THE ISLAND
Covering a total area of only 348.5 sq. km (134.6 sq mi), the country of Grenada consists of the main island of Grenada, the larger islands of Carriacou and Petit Martinique, and some 600 small islets, mostly uninhabited. The islands of the country of Grenada are all volcanic in origin and vary in elevation from 300m (984ft), to over 600m (1,968 ft).
As observed on the map, the island of Grenada itself is more mountainous than the others and are covered by dense forest. Its land rises from a narrow, coastal plain into areas of dormant volcanic ridges and valleys. Mount St. Catherine is the highest point rising to 840 m (2,760 ft). The island is drained by many small rivers flowing to the sea, all cutting deeply into the slopes.
A few of the mountains contain crater basins, and one includes a large crater lake named Grand Etang. The lake is over 1700ft above sea level, and is surrounded with some of the island’s most beautiful rainforest. Waterfalls are scattered across the upper-reaches of Grenada, as well as a few boiling springs; the River Sallee boiling springs is the most significant.
