Grenada is the most southerly of the Windward Islands and is famous for its beautiful beaches and its spices. It is a very green and beautiful island, with a stunning rainforest that shouldn't be missed.

St George's

The capital of the island is St George's, a pretty harbour town on the south-west of the island. The famous spice market is here, and it's a nice place just to wander about. The history of Grenada is evident everywhere you turn - be sure to vist Fort George to learn more about its past.

Snorkelling and diving

The coral reefs around the island are great to try scuba diving and snorkelling, and there are many companies that run boat trips out to the best places to dive. A lot of hotels have snorkelling equipment for guests' use, as well as kayaks and sunsails. My underwater photography isn't great (only a disposable camera!) but this slightly blurry shot will give you an idea of what to expect.

    Very valuable tip re: that tour guide! This looks like a wonderful place - it's been far too long since I've snorkelled around a coral reef!

    Thanks for the tips about GrenadaExplorer and Art Fabrik( I haven't seen this elsewhere). If you are thinking of SE Asia, don't forget Malaysia- there is a lot of culture and great scenary there.

    Sorry to hear you had to go to prison. At least you got to take some great shots from up there ;-) Good tips, wish I was there now instead of sitting in the office... Best regards from Germany!
