Your vacations in Grenada

Grenada is a group of three larger islands – Grenada, Carriacou, and Petit Martinique – and several tiny islands in the Caribbean or West Indies. It lies just northeast of Trinidad and Tobago, and southwest of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. Of these islands, Grenada is by far the largest island and where most of the nation's people live; Carriacou is the second largest island, and home to the town of Hillsborough; and Petit Martinique is the distant third-largest island, which has limited tourist facilities.

Christopher Columbus discovered Grenada in 1498. Over the centuries, although control of the island passed from France to Britain (and briefly back to France again), the name endured with just the slightest of alterations, changing from Granada to La Grenade to Grenada.
