Flights to Grenada
You can smell the spice in the air in Grenada, a group of three larger islands floating aimlessly in the Caribbean, or the West Indies. The island is a major source of nutmeg, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, and cocoa, earning the moniker the “Spice Isle”. Grenada is also a bombshell in its own right, with its fine and dandy beaches, islands, and waterfronts that surely warms and captivates beach lovers and wandering tourists alike. Given these, you can already say that everything in Grenada is made up of sugar, spice, and everything nice.
What to see & do
You should put atop on your priority list the Nutmeg Processing Cooperative in Gouyave, the capital of the St. John district. The processing station of nutmeg is an old facility. Here, you will see rows and rows of drying racks that are covered with fruit of trees descended from the first nutmeg plants. On the other hand, workers can be seen sifting through the tasty pods. Tours come and go in an instant, so make sure you make the most of your visit in the plant. You’ll never get lost while on your way here which is accessible on Gouyave’s main road, as hints of nutmeg leaves a trail in the air and leads you to this place.
Aside from nutmeg, cocoa is another nature wonder. The 300-year-old plantation of Belmont Estate may be cocoa’s sanctuary, but it does not cultivate on cocoa alone, it also cultivates cinnamon, cloves, bay leaf, ginger, and nutmeg. Here, you will get loads of information on cocoa production, and at the end of the tour, have a rewarding and tasty lunch at the end of landscaped gardens. Belmont Estate is located about two miles northwest of Tivoli.
In the capital St. George, you can visit the oldest fort by the French that dates back to 1705. The Fort George is considered the centerpiece of the capital’s skyline. A spot that marks the execution of the revolutionary leader Maurice Bishop can be found on the ground, which set fire the invasion of the United States in 1983. From here, you can climb atop the tunnel and get a bird’s eye view of the city and beyond.
You should not leave Grenada without visiting the Grand Anse Bay, flocked and frequented by tourists with its white sand beaches, turquoise water, and array of hotels, bars, restaurants, and watersports center. If you want to escape the frenzied beach area, you can cross the peninsula of Quarantine Point and find tranquil in the Morne Rouge Bay. Keep in the mind that the Bay was hit by the Hurricane Ivan in 2004, and that some places may still be under construction to this day.
