Information from the Foreign Office about your trip to Grenada:

Grenada is an archipelago in the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean with around 110,000 inhabitants. Geographically, the country is located in the southern Caribbean, south of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and northeast of South American Venezuela.

The national territory consists of the main island of Grenada and several smaller islands of the Grenadines archipelago, such as Ronde Island, Carriacou, Caille Island, Petite Martinique, Diamond Island, Large Island, Saline Island, Les Tantes and Frigate Island. However, the northern islands of the Grenadines are already part of the neighboring state of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The official language of Grenada is English and the common Eastern Caribbean dollar is used as payment, with 1 euro being equivalent to around 3 XCD.

The largest towns in the archipelago include Saint Georges, Gouyave, Grenville, Victoria, Saint Davids, Sauteurs and Hillsborough.

The main island of Grenada, where the majority of the population lives, is of volcanic origin and very hilly. The highest point in the country is the 840 meter high Mount Saint Catherine.

The climate in Grenada is tropical and numerous rivers originate in the mountains, which largely results in nutritious soil.

The country's most important export products therefore include agricultural products such as nutmeg, cocoa, cinnamon, bananas, ginger, sugar and cloves.

Grenada is known worldwide as the spice island and is, among other things, the second largest producer of nutmeg, the state's main export product. Around one in five of these nuts worldwide comes from the small Caribbean island. The nutmeg is even immortalized on the national flag of the Caribbean country.

However, the country's main source of income and at the same time its largest employer is tourism. Grenada has experienced a significant increase in visitors from cruise ships in recent years because, following an expansion of the port, up to four ships can now dock at the same time.

The most important tourist attractions include the 50 different sandy beaches on the main island. Of these, the approximately three kilometer long Grand Anse Beach in Saint Georges is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

The capital and largest city of Grenada is Saint Georges with around 40,000 inhabitants. Saint Georges is located on a natural horseshoe-shaped bay, with houses stretching up several slopes on the surrounding hills.

The city's most important attractions include the colonial downtown, Fort George, the harbor, Fort Frederick, the market square, the famous underwater sculptures, Market Hill, the Carenage marina, the Dougaldston Estate, the Sendall Tunnel, St. George's Church , the Cathedral, Grenada's Craft Center, St. Paul's Tower Estate, the ruins of St. Andrews Church and the beautiful Grand Anse Beach.

In August 2015 I visited the Caribbean island of Grenada for the only time so far. After I had to briefly interrupt my nine-week Caribbean tour due to an illness in the family and fly from the previous island of Barbados to Germany for a few days, my planned six-day stay in Grenada turned into only two in the end.

Nevertheless, I tried to make the best of this unpleasant situation. I spent the night there privately, with an uncle of my constant companion on this tour, hence the originally planned six days.

After I was fortunately picked up at the airport, I was immediately able to marvel at the enormous cleanliness and well-kept condition of the island. The streets were mainly lined with countless fruit trees, mostly mango trees.

What was also very noticeable was that all the curbs on the entire island were completely painted in the country's national colors, thus ensuring an excellent appearance. This perfect condition is rarely found on a Caribbean island.

After my long and exhausting flight from Germany, we just ended the evening with some delicious drinks.

After getting up extra early in the morning, there were still a few hours left to visit the city of Saint Georges. As soon as you entered the capital's bay from above, there was an impressive panorama of the city. The clear highlight of Saint Georges for me was the long white sandy beach of Grand Anse with its many reed parasols.

All in all, the spice island of Grenada is always worth a visit and I will return again one day to make up for the rest of my first visit.

In the late morning I went on to St. Vincent and the Grenadines to catch up with my friend and travel partner who had already flown in and to enjoy the last two weeks of our long Caribbean tour.
