Grenada

Our fleet

Grenada is a country in the group of windward islands of the Lesser Central Antilles in Central America, discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1498. It was a British colony, gaining its independence in 1974.

The nation of Grenada is a chain of several islands including Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. The country gets its nickname as the Spice Isle because it is a leading producer of cinnamon, cloves, ginger, mace, allspice and nutmeg.

Beaches
Beautiful beaches make up the coastline, including the 1.9 mile-long Grand Anse Beach in St. George Paris, which frequently appears in Top 10 lists of the world’s greatest beaches. The marine life is spectacular here and you’ll spot turtles, rays, dolphins and a spectrum of tropical fish on a Grenada yacht charter
