Grenada is known as the “Island of Spice” because of the production of nutmeg and mace crops, and Grenada is one of the world’s largest exporters. Grenada is 133 square miles, with an estimated population of 110,000.
The island of Grenada is the largest island in the Grenadines; smaller islands are Carriacou, Petit Martinique, Ronde Island, Caille Island, Diamond Island, Large Island, Saline Island, and Frigate Island. Most of the population lives on Grenada, and major towns there include the capital, St. George’s, Grenville and Gouyave.
The islands are of volcanic origin with extremely rich soil. Grenada’s interior is very mountainous and several small rivers with beautiful waterfalls flow into the sea from these mountains. The climate is tropical: hot and humid in the rainy season and cooled by the trade winds in the dry season. Some good news for our travelers: Grenada, being on the southern edge of the hurricane belt, has suffered only three hurricanes in fifty years.
