History

Grenada was traditionally inhabited by Carib Indians who migrated from the South America mainland.

The island was originally known as Camerhougue but Columbus renamed it Concepcion Island when he visited in 1498. Successive Spanish sailors found it to be so evocative of Andalucia with its lush green mountain scenery that they called it Granada which is the origination of its name today.

“Grenada is an island of impossible beauty. Stunning scenery of wildly jagged mountain peaks, magnificent unspoilt beaches, hidden coves, spice plantations and lush verdant rainforests, fused with the fun and friendliness of the true West Indies.”
