Driving Directions Grenada
GRENADA is the most southerly of the Windward Islands chain in the Caribbean, and its highest peak at 838 meters or 2,750 feet is Mount St Catherine. Its territory includes the southern Grenadine Islands to the north.
The main island consists of the remains of extinct volcanoes and has an attractive wooded landscape. In the dry season, its typical climate is delightful with warm days and cool nights, but it is hot, day and night, in the wet season.
Agriculture is the island’s main industry, and the chief crops grown for export are citrus fruits, cocoa beans, nutmeg, bananas, and mace. Other crops grown are cloves, cotton, coconuts, and cinnamon.
Apart from the processing of its crops, Grenada has few manufacturing industries. It is a popular port of call for cruise ships and tourism is an important source of foreign revenue.
