Southwest of St. Vincent and the Grenadines lies the island nation of Grenada, which is actually a collection of seven islands, including Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. It’s close proximity to the northern Grenadines means that you have miles of unspoiled cruising grounds to explore.
Grenada calls itself “The Spice of the Caribbean,” which may have something to do with its unique meld of French and English culture, not to mention the well-seasoned local cuisine. The country produces cinnamon, cloves, ginger, mace, allspice and is famous for its nutmeg and “tree-to-bar” organically grown chocolate.
Constant trade winds supply plenty of sail power. With the islands so close together, short passages are the norm at the southernmost tip of the Windward Islands. Plan to cruise a week or two if you want to take full advantage of the azure waters, sandy beaches and natural beauty of Grenada and the stunning Grenadines.
