Facts about Grenada

Grenada (the first "a" is a long vowel) is the most southerly of the Windward Islands with a population of 101,000 and an area of 344 square kilometers (133 square miles).  It is a volcanic island traversed by a mountain range, the highest peak of which is Mount St. Catherine (2,756 ft; 849m).  Grenada consists of two other islands, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. 

Grenada, the largest and most populous island, is known as the Spice Isle of the Caribbean.  Nutmeg replaced sugar as the main crop after the British took the island from France in 1783.  Small farms replaced sugar plantations and today the sweet smells of nutmeg and other spices drift on gentle breezes.
