Grenada, referred to as the Spice Island of the Caribbean, is famed for its aromatic spices, including cinnamon, clove, allspice, and nutmeg. Visitors can spend the day learning about the history of spice production and how it has influenced the island culture for centuries.

Grenada is located in the eastern Caribbean, just south of Barbados. It has 40 white-sand beaches, including the world-famous Grand Anse Beach; 15 waterfalls; five chocolate factories; three rum distilleries, and more than 30 dive sites, including the largest shipwreck in the Caribbean—Bianca C—and the world’s first underwater sculpture park. Grenada is also known for its beaches, which are serene and well maintained.

Grenada is known for its scuba diving and divers come from all over the world to experience the water here. There is a diverse array of reefs, walls and ship wrecks.

In fact, the largest shipwreck in the Caribbean Sea, The Bianca C, burned and sank just outside the St. George’ Harbor in 1961. This Italian luxury liner is encrusted with corals and is considered a prize destination in the Caribbean. It is often called the ‘Titanic of the Caribbean’, and is considered as one of the top ten scuba diving wreck sites in the world. Divers have the possibility of seeing a variety of fish here including eagle rays, nurse sharks, Atlantic spadefish, large moray eels and barracuda.
