Grenada is located in the Caribbean and is known as the Island of Spice or Spice Island as it is the world's second-largest producer of nutmeg and is a significant producer of mace, cinnamon, ginger and cloves. The capital of Grenada, St George’s, is widely considered to be the most picturesque in the Caribbean, whilst the rest of the island remains unspoilt in its natural beauty.
