Winter Solstice is coming up and if you’re looking for a warmer place to escape for the holidays, the Caribbean islands could be just the perfect location! Whether you wish to charter a yacht or take your own boat out, the Caribbean islands welcome you with a warm, tropical escape. This week, we highlight the south Caribbean islands of Grenada and the neighboring Grenadines. The new Port Louis Marina near St. George, the capital of Grenada, is a huge draw for superyachts. With 160 slips for yachts up to 300 feet, the marina is located below the hurricane belt and offers a safe and welcome place for yachts.
The island of Grenada has an international airport just ten minutes from the capital. The island is English speaking, with no traffic jams and little crime. All the hotels on Grenada were developed not to exceed the height of the palm trees in order to preserve the natural look of the island and to offer unobstructed views of the scenery. There are plenty of natural wonders to explore including spectacular waterfalls, rainforests, rivers, wreck diving and pristine Caribbean beaches.
Grenada is nicknamed the Spice of the Caribbean for its soil and climate that’s perfect for growing spices, making the country one of the world’s largest producers of nutmeg and mace. Herbs and spices make their way into the local cuisine, which consists of spiced meats and fish with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables.
