Sugar and Spice- The Islands of the Grenadines

A set of small scattered islands, so linear in formation that early European explorers referred to them as “the birds”, the Grenadines are a diverse and beautiful part of the lesser-travelled Caribbean. Stretching across the sea in a long chain from the sleepy country of Grenada up to elegant St. Vincent, the Grenadines offer authentic island life without domination by the mega-hotels and large cruise ports that have become commonplace in many of the surrounding nations. From remote reefs and charming colonial villages to one of the most renowned celebrity holiday destinations, experiencing these unique isles inevitably leaves visitors with a new perspective of what the Caribbean has to offer. The southernmost point of the chain, the country of Grenada is known as The Spice Isle, from its long history as a source of cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg, first as a French and then British colony
