The island country of Grenada is located in the south-eastern part of the Caribbean Sea. With Trinidad and Tobago to the north-west, Venezuela to the north-east, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines to the south-west, Grenada is a well connected isle. One of the largest producers of nutmeg and mace, Grenada is known as the 'Island of Spice' in the Caribbean region. Grenada has had a rich history which can be seen in the landmarks around the country even today. Colonised by the French and British in the past, Grenada became independent in 1974. The country has since then been developing and finding its place in the world by building industries like tourism and spice production.
The capital of Grenada, St. George's occupies the south-western region of the island. It is regarded as one of the most beautiful places in the Caribbean. You can hire a car in Grenada and travel around this beautiful city with its horse-shoe shaped harbour and red roofed houses. When here, do visit Fort George, a magnificent structure that will attract your attention as you approach the city. Built between 1706 and 1710, this fort is now used as a station for the Royal Grenada Police Force. However, there are sections within the fort that are open for public viewing.
Situated on the northern end of Grenada, St. Patrick's is full of fun and activities. It has a colourful nightlife and many pubs that will offer you the best of the local flavours.
