Grenada is a Caribbean island 90 miles north of Trinidad and Tobago. It is a tri-island state including Carriacou, and Petite Martinique. The island has six parishes and 120 square miles.

Because of its volcanic origin, Grenada’s landscape has great beauty and variety, ranging from mountainous rainforest to dry lowlands and coastal mangroves. There are springs, rivers, waterfalls and crater lakes.
There are a large number of bays and beaches with black volcanic as well as white sand.

Grenada is known as the Isle of Spice with cloves, cinnamon, ginger, turmeric, cocoa, nutmeg and mace. Grenada is a rural country and the majority of the inhabitants live in this setting.

The third largest is St David. There is a rich history of revolutions starting here, the first landing of Europeans were here, the first town ever started on the island were here, (today St David is only parish without a town).

There is a prehistoric Amerindian site, a trail of Fedon from St David to Grand Etang (the trail is now reopened and offers a wonderful days hiking), stories of pirate loot, stones, stone axes, and pottery and so on.

There are communities with wonderful names such as Apr├Ęs Toute, Hampstead, Thebaide and Belle Vue, all with rich tradition of agriculture and are busily replanting nutmeg trees after the ‘terrible’ hurricane Ivan.

So if you are planning a Grenada vacation and are looking for an apartment to rent in a rural setting away for all the hustle and bustle, visit the parish of St David. Oh yes, there are also eleven unspoiled beaches to choose from.
