St. George’s, Grenada – Pure Grenada, the Spice of the Caribbean has once again been recognized as a great place to vacation and this was highlighted in the USA Today’s Top 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards for several Tourism categories.
To be rated number #2 in the Best Caribbean Island for Romance category is a great honour as we know the Caribbean region is one of the most romantic places to visit in the world. Couples can visit our 15 waterfalls, get a massage at one of our Sulphur springs, take a leisurely hike around Grand Etang lake or just relax and enjoy the stunning sunsets on one of our 40 white sandy beaches. Special mention must be made of the world famous Grand Anse Beach, ranked #4 in the Caribbean.
Local Beach Bar Umbrellas on Grand Anse Beach was rated #6 for being a cool place to hang out and enjoy the vibe while local restaurant BB’s Crabback was rated #9 (Best Restaurant category) for its tasty, authentic, spice infused cuisine.
Our rum factories, Clarke’s Court and River Antoine Rum Distillery were rated #6 and #8 respectively and anyone who has visited River Antoine Estate is in awe at the oldest working water wheel in the Caribbean and can taste the purity of the ancient processing technique while Clarke’s Court offers an award winning selection of island flavoured rums, the newest being their chocolate rum liqueur Amaz-In.
Not only on land does Grenada have plenty to offer visitors but beneath the sea as well. The world’s first Underwater Sculpture Park was rated #8 and for dive enthusiasts, the Bianca C dive wreck site was rated #4. Our sister island of Carriacou known as the ‘Isle of Reefs’ got a dive feature with Sisters Rock and was rated #9.
