Some interesting fact about Grenada:
In the last episode we arrived to Grenada. Grenada is a juicy, green island full of spices, mainly nutmeg and cocoa, famous for the best quality cocoa in the world.
This Caribbean island is located at the southern end of the Grenadines archipelago. It has been independent since 1974.
Christopher Columbus was the first European to see Grenada in 1498 on his third voyage, naming it “Concepción”. However, the British were the first to attempt to colonize the island in 1609.
Grenada is also called the “island of spice” due to the cultivation of nutmeg which was introduced to Grenada in the 19th century. When a merchant ship from the East Indies to England carried a small amount of nutmegs left behind in Grenada, it was the beginning of the nutmeg industry Grenada’s nutmeg tree, which currently accounts for almost 40% of the world’s annual harvest.
Grenada is a Caribbean country that consists of a main island, also known as Grenada, and smaller surrounding islands. On the hilly main island, there are numerous nutmeg plantations. It is also the seat of the capital, St. George’s, full of colorful houses, buildings and Fort George from the early 18th century. To the south is the famous bay and the long Grand Anse Beach, where we have anchored our home today.
Grenada is also a serious base for sailors, with several marinas on the island, good supplies, and its location far to the south makes it a relatively safe during the hurricane season.
