Do you get excited at the thought of challenging the wind while sailing at high speeds? Does diving eerie underwater sculptures peak intrigue, or is there an urge to experience the twists and turns of the Balthazaar River while going adventure river tubing?

Discover the spoils of life at any time during the year because whether you decide to hideaway at the Calivigny Island or sample the exquisite cuisine of famous TV Chef Gary Rhode’s Restaurant, the secret luxurious side of the Spice Island await you.
If you’re intrigued by the culture and traditions of another country, then the important events in your calendar should be April’s Carriacou Maroon & String Band Festival, May’s Grenada Drum Festival, the Spice Mas Festival in August and December’s Camerhogne Folk Festival! They are all experiences never to be forgotten.
With 5 Regattas, 1 cycling tournament, 1 triathlon and a bill fish tournament throughout the year, Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique is nothing short of a playground for sporting events. The only thing missing is you.
With Carriacou’s Carnival in February and Grenada’s in August, the Spice Islands are the only ones in this region celebrating 2 carnivals per year.
