Grenada is an island country consisting of the island of Grenada and six smaller islands, located in the southeastern Caribbean Sea, northwest of Trinidad and Tobago, northeast of Venezuela, and southwest of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

Grenada is known as the "Spice Island" - a great variety of spices, like nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, vanilla or cocoa are grown here.

Granada and other six islands are of volcanic origin which gives the country its mountainous picturesque landscapes filled with crater lakes, small rivers, waterfalls and tropical rainforests. Mount St. Catherine is the highest peak at 840 m (2,756 feet) above the sea level. Tourists can also enjoy white sand beaches at the coasts as well as pristine coral reefs. An "added bonus" for this Caribbean country and its visitors is the fact that Grenada lies at the edge of the hurricane belt and rarely suffers from disasters caused by hurricanes.
