Grenada is an island nation that is situated with the Caribbean Sea to its west and the Atlantic Ocean to its east. The island of Grenada is the largest of the state’s islands, at about 310 square kilometers (comparable to a mid-sized city in the United States). In addition to the island of Grenada, the nation encompasses two other inhabited islands (Carriacou and Petite Martinique) as well as several uninhabited islets.
Grenada has volcanic origins, making its topography varied and mountainous. Mt. St. Catherine, reaching 840 meters in height, marks the island’s highest peak. The island is home to dense forests, mangroves, valleys, waterfalls, rivers, and the crater lake, Lake Etang. Grenada offers endless outdoor adventures, from hiking, birdwatching, and camping to swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving. White sand beaches line the coast, offering access to and views of the ocean and calmer bay waters. It is also thanks to this volcanic activity over one million years ago that Grenada has such rich soil suitable for the growth of nutmeg, mace, and other crops. Professional and hobby horticulturists will also enjoy the ease with which tropical fruits, shrubs, and ferns can grow in Grenada.
Daytime temperatures typically rise above 80 degrees F (26 degrees C) year-round. Combined with cool trade winds and high humidity, Grenada has a tropical climate. Grenada residents and visitors can anticipate significant rainfall between May and January, with November welcoming the most rainfall on average.
