Grenada

Welcome to the Grenada hub at David’s Been Here! Grenada, known as the “Island of Spice,” is a mesmerizing tropical paradise that boasts stunning natural beauty and vibrant cultural heritage. Situated in the eastern Caribbean, this enchanting island boasts pristine white-sand beaches, crystal-clear turquoise waters, and lush green mountains shrouded in tropical rainforests.

Grenada is world-renowned for its production of spices, including nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves. Its charming capital city, St. George’s, is home to colorful colonial buildings and a picturesque harbor.

In addition to its natural beauty and cultural richness, Grenada is also a paradise for food lovers. The island’s cuisine is a delectable fusion of flavors influenced by indigenous, African, Indian, and European culinary traditions. Grenadian dishes are known for their bold flavors, which utilize the island’s abundant spices, tropical fruits, and fresh seafood.

From the thick and hearty oil down, to the earthy callaloo, to the gamy manicou, Grenadian cuisine is as delicious as it is varied. The island is also a major center for rum production, which adds to its vibrant gastronomical offerings.

I explored Grenada in the spring of 2023 and couldn’t get enough of its incredible food and culture. And while it may not be one of the more well-known Caribbean islands, it’s one that should be high on anyone’s travel bucket list!
