Grenada has real beauty. Famed for its wonderful beaches and scenic little coves packed with sailing boats, the land rises to Mount St Catherine, a 2,756 feet high almost extinct volcano. The whole area is volcanic, Grenada's sister islands of Carriacou and Petite Martinique just off the north coast, are the tips of volcanic peaks over 30 million years old!
The geography of the island has been shaped by its volcanic history, steep peaks, swift rivers and dramatic mountain terrain harbouring beautiful natural rain forest with striking spectacular waterfalls. There are many flowering shrubs and trees and a wide variety of spices.
Grenada is largely unspoiled and for many years largely unknown. In recent times the number of visitors has increased, offshore banking and offshore financial services have been developed, the economy has shown steady growth and more and more people have been attracted to purchase property. Many are returning nationals but there has also been a significant increase in the number of overseas residents, mostly from UK, United States and Europe.
