Grenada attracts travelers and international residents thanks to its warm climate and stunning topography. It is the largest of the three islands of the State of Grenada, at 12 miles (18km) by 21 miles (34km), totaling 120 square miles (440 sq. km). The other islands, Carriacou and Petite Martinique, are 13 square miles and 486 acres, respectively. Despite its small size, Grenada is ecologically diverse, boasting rainforests, dry lowlands, mountains, and picturesque mangroves. Grenada has rightfully earned the nickname Isle of Spice, producing more spices per square footage than anywhere else on earth.
Grenada was the first of the six West Indies Associated States to attain Commonwealth Independence and United Nations membership, securing both in 1974. Residents are also attracted to the State of Grenada due to its visa-free travel arrangement with more than 120 nations and its friendly tax policies for non-nationals.
Lower Cost of Living
Grenada offers a lower cost of living than most other Caribbean Islands and is highly favorable when compared to average costs in the US and UK. Affordability does not come with the sacrifice of luxury, including fine dining opportunities in St. George’s and Prickly Bay Marina. Residents can also enjoy affordable education and healthcare of the highest quality as well as ample homeownership opportunities.

For Adventure Lovers
Despite a long rainy season, which lasts from June to December with a maximum rainfall of 150 inches in the mountainous regions, Grenada is an ideal destination for adventure lovers. Grand Etang National Park and Mt. St. Catherine, the island’s highest peak, offer ample hiking opportunities that often include encounters with unique Caribbean wildlife. Grenada and its surrounding waters are popular amongst snorkelers, kayakers, and scuba divers thanks to vibrant coral reefs and the world-famous Underwater Sculpture Park.
