Grenada is a country located in the West Indies in the Caribbean Sea. Famously dubbed the Spice Island, Grenada is known for its abundance of herbs and spices, including cloves, cinnamon, cloves, turmeric, and saffron.
But asides from spices, the island is beautified with waterfalls, beaches, and world-class cocoa. Here are some places to check in this Caribbean haven.
· Grant Anse Beach
Great Anse Beach is the most famous beach in Grenada. It is bordered by sea grapes, coconut trees, and almond trees. Attracting cruise ship visitors yearly, this golden sanded beach is one of Grenada's best relaxation spots.
If you feel like going on a shopping spree, midway along the beach is the Grande Anse Craft and Spice Market, another magnet for visitors.
· Underwater Sculpture Park
On Grenada's west coast, north of St. George's Moliniere Bay, is the unique underwater gallery. If you enjoy scuba-diving and a love for art, well, this is a 2-in-1 treat for you!
Artist Jason deCaires Taylor created it, and it showcases sculptures that range from life-size figures cast from local children to Amerindian petroglyphs. The gallery also acts as an artificial reef in the marine protected area.
· Fort Frederick
Fort Frederick is a unique stone fort started by the French to secure their hold on the island after ousting the British in 1779. It is nicknamed the "Backwards facing fort" because the French constructed its cannons facing inland rather than towards the sea to prevent an attack from the land, the same tactics they ousted the British with.
The fort was abandoned by the French later, and the British completed it in 1791. The fort was finally abandoned entirely by the British in 1850, and the Grenadian military took it over. The fort offers beautiful views of St. George and the sea.
